Supporting a Charity can help enhance awareness of your brand while directly benefiting one of the leading hospitals in the country.
Additionally, partnering with Southampton Hospitals Charity could help your organisation demonstrate its commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility to your clients, customers, and staff. You can also make a big difference to your local community.
Southampton Hospitals Charity funds life-changing projects that aim to enhance the health and well-being of patients who use our hospitals. By partnering with us, you can help to enhance care, experience and outcomes for thousands of patients every year.
We understand that every business is unique and has different reasons for choosing to support us. Our dedicated and experienced team will work closely with you to tailor a partnership that is mutually beneficial and right for you. We can provide ideas, support, encouragement and inspiration every step of the way.
Local theme park Paultons Park have chosen to support Southampton Hospitals Charity for three years to help refurbish a retreat space in Southampton Children’s Hospital, a cause they felt was closely linked to their business.
We see the joy that play can bring to children and hope that this partnership will continue to support those who are receiving treatment in Southampton Children’s Hospital.” – Lauren, Paultons Park
We have over 380 different funds that support various wards, departments and areas of the hospital as well as a number of innovative projects. You can support any area of the hospital which you feel best represents your business.
How we can work together
There are many ways we could work together including:
- Charity of the Year partnership
If your business chooses to dedicate fundraising activities to a different cause each year, then we’d love you to nominate Southampton Hospitals Charity. Together we could make a real difference to your local hospital.
- Company Donations
If you are looking for a good cause to benefit from a charitable donation from your company then we would love to hear from you. We will discuss your particular interests and can help identify a specific area, ward, department, or project within the hospital that aligns best to your company’s values.
- Employee Fundraising
You and your colleagues could take part in a number of exciting challenges together, helping to boost team morale, or even capitalise on those competitive streaks! Or perhaps you could hold a bake sale or lunch time quiz, or organise a bowling night or a climbing event?
Whatever you have planned, we have a range of fundraising materials available to support your fundraising activities.
• Corporate Sponsorship
There are a number of opportunities for your business to sponsor; including our charity led events and campaigns, helping maximise your brand exposure and boosting your business presence in the local community, whilst helping us cover the costs of hosting these popular annual events.
• Gifts in kind
Your company can donate gifts to Southampton Hospitals Charity which we will distribute across the hospital or to a ward or department of your choice. Your donation will mean that patients feel cared for and not on their own throughout the year, especially at Christmas, Easter or on their birthday.
- Cause related marketing
Your company could donate a proportion of the profits to us from the sale of a particular product or service.
This mutually beneficial collaboration could help boost your sales, promote your business and make others aware of Southampton Hospitals Charity.
- Payroll Giving / Pennies from Heaven
Your employees can choose to support Southampton Hospitals Charity by making a regular or one-off donation directly from their earnings through Payroll Giving or Pennies from Heaven. Donations are deducted from salaries before Income Tax is applied, meaning they receive tax relief on their donation. Why not encourage staff to donate those extra pennies on their pay checks?
If your business provides staff volunteering days then please do get in touch and we can look to identify an opportunity at University Hospital Southampton, or at one of our events throughout the year.
