Deaf Direct holds many events throughout the year which require volunteer support. These can include fundraising at collections, manning stalls at community fetes or providing marshals during sponsored events. If your company can spare the time to help with these events, we will be happy to promote their support in local publicity and online.
We’re always looking for fundraisers who want to take part in our events too. Mud Runs, Obstacle Runs and Trekking Challenges are great for teambuilding. If you have a team who would like to take part to raise funds for Deaf Direct, please check our Events Calendar and let us know which event your staff would like to take part in,
If you don’t want to take part in an existing event, why not set up a fundraising event of your own? Quizzes, activity days or simple dress down/bake-off days are all great ideas to get your team involved. For further ideas, please request one of our Corporate Fundraising Packs.
If your company would like to further increase the impact of events, why not consider setting up a Matched Giving Scheme? This will allow your company to match the fundraising undertaken by an employee e.g. if an employee raises £300, your company could match this so that Deaf Direct receives £600. To set up a scheme, contact an organisation such as the Charities Aid Foundation: https://www.cafonline.org/giving-as-a-company/engaging-employees/matched-giving
