Work with us - Charity Partnerships

Together we can make a difference

From developing new life-saving products or empowering staff to raise money for our emergency work, our innovative partnerships make a real difference to children's lives.

Interested in corporate charity partnerships?


You could help us achieve ambitious change for children, both at home and abroad. 

There are many ways that your company can support our work, from financial donations to event sponsorship, developing innovative partnerships which will involve your staff through fundraising, volunteering and support for our campaigns. Find out more below or email CorporateSupport@savethechildren.org.uk. You can also download an enquiry form.

To get an idea of how we work with partners and how you could make a difference, you can read all about our current corporate partnerships including the award-winning strategic partnership with GSK, and our innovative multi-brand partnership with Unilever

Financial donations

A corporate donation can be a powerful social investment tool. We'll work with you to maximise the benefits it brings your company as well as the children it supports.

Gifts in kind

Your company can bring about dramatic change for children by donating products or professional expertise. From mosquito nets to pro bono legal work, we need goods and services to help children both at home and abroad.

Campaigns

Supporting our campaigns can help us achieve significant breakthroughs in the way the world treats its children. Your voice will help us speak louder when calling on local, national and international leaders to make decisions that save and improve children’s lives.

There is real a lack of opportunity for many young people, like Bolo* and his friends, in Madagascar. Unilever and Save the Children have teamed up to give young people the chance of a better future, starting by improving the lives of families involved in vanilla production.

Cause-related marketing (CRM)

Teaming up with Save the Children to market a new or existing product or service could boost your sales, profile and customer base, while raising vital funds for children.

Most consumers agree that, price and quality being equal, they are more likely to buy a product or service associated with a cause they care about.

We know how to maximise the effects of Cause- related marketing (CRM) promotions by making them innovative and truly integrated with your existing marketing strategies.

Sponsorship

Associating your brand with the world’s leading independent organisation for children could be really beneficial for your business and stakeholders.

Sponsorship opportunities are a great way of connecting with target audiences while demonstrating good corporate citizenship.

By sponsoring one of our high-profile events or campaign platforms you can enhance your brand profile while helping us raise vital funds for children.

FUNDRAISING

Whether it’s bike rides, book sales, head shaves or hikes, staff fundraising is fun, simple and sociable.

By supporting your staff’s fundraising efforts your company will build motivated and engaged teams and develop their personal and professional skills.

VOLUNTEERING

Companies are full of people whose time, expertise and specialist skills can help us have a real and lasting impact on the lives of children across the globe.

By supporting staff volunteering activities, companies can strengthen their corporate social responsibility programmes and stand out from their competitors.

HIGH-PROFILE EVENTS

High-profile social events provide the perfect opportunity for companies to raise awareness and funds for Save the Children, while also demonstrating their support. They’re also great for networking.

CAMPAIGNING

Save the Children is dedicated to achieving dramatic change for children. Your staff can help us make this a reality by actively supporting our campaigns.

The first 24-48 hours of an emergency are crucial. With your help, we can reach children immediately with the essentials they need to survive.

Payroll Giving is a simple and cost-effective way to donate monthly to charity through your salary.

Get your payroll giving form

Payroll Giving – also known as Give As You Earn – is an easy way for employees to donate to charity directly from their salary. Thousands of companies large and small offer it to their staff.

It’s a really flexible system that allows staff to donate as much or as little as they wish to the charity of their choice.

Why payroll giving is great for employers

  • Donations are deducted from salaries before tax, making it a tax-efficient way to give.
  • It’s easy to set up and any administration costs are tax deductible.
  • Donations can be counted as part of your Charity of the Year targets.
  • You can use the government’s Payroll Giving Quality Mark and might also qualify for a Quality Award Mark if you promote your scheme.
  • You would be eligible for recognition in other national awards, such as the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards or the Pay and Benefits Awards.
