Company giving

The Brent Centre can work with your company to make a significant social impact in the community. Whether you work for a small or large company, there are many ways that your organisation can support us, and in turn make a real difference to young people’s futures.

Payroll giving

For your employees, donating to the Brent Centre straight from their pay is a quick and easy way to regularly support us. It is also tax efficient, and with regular support such as this we are able to plan for the future.

To set up payroll giving, you will need to register with a HMRC registered Payroll Giving Agency. You can find out more here. If you would like our support with payroll giving, please email supportus@brentcentre.org.uk or call 0207 328 0918 to speak with a member of our fundraising team.

Matched funding

By providing matched funding you can significantly increase the impact of your employee’s donations, either through payroll giving or through their own fundraising activities. Some companies match £1 for £1, and some match a percentage such as 10 or 50%.

Charity of the year

Many companies will have a charity of the year as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility programme. If your company and your employees share our aims of giving young people the chance of happier, healthier adulthoods, we would love to be your charity of the year.

You may have lots of ideas of how you would like to support our cause, and we are here to provide your company with as much support as you need over the year. We will also work with you to publicise the difference you will make to the lives of young people, providing positive PR both internally in your organisation and externally in the community.

Volunteering

Volunteering can be an excellent way for your employees to spend a team-building day, or to use hours donated by your company to good causes.

Encouraging your employees to volunteer for the Brent Centre can benefit their personal development and your Corporate Social Responsibility programme. It can also benefit your employees through:

  • Team building
  • Developing new skills
  • Engaging your company in work within the community

The Brent Centre can benefit greatly from employee volunteering, from painting and decorating days at our Centre to bucket collections and sponsored challenges. To find out more, please visit our volunteering page.

Sponsorship

Sponsorship can be a great way to donate to the Brent Centre, publicise your support and raise your profile. We often look for sponsors to partner us, for example with:

  • Supporter t-shirts
  • Banners
  • Events
  • Marathon runner vests

To speak with us about current sponsorship opportunities, please contact our fundraising team by emailing supportus@brentcentre.org.uk or by calling 0207 328 0918.

Donating your skills and expertise

The Brent Centre requires a number of services in order to operate in all areas of expertise, from accountancy to gardening. If your company could volunteer your skills and expertise to support our work we would love to hear from you.

By donating your skills you would be allowing us to spend as much time and money as possible on directly providing help and support to young people.
