Become a Corporate Supporter

Businesses across our region, and the people that power them, play an essential role in keeping our charity going. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to offer the 60+ services for babies, children, young people and their families that provide hope during some of life’s most difficult moments.

Without your support, we couldn’t ensure that urgent help is kept alive in communities month-on-month or respond to a young person facing a mental health crisis when it matters most to them or keep the lights on in our buildings offering safe spaces and warm meals when families have nowhere else to go.

Below we’ve listed different ways you can support our work and get involved, but we also love to hear what matters to you, so contact vicky.williamson@children-ne.org-uk to organise a discussion with our wonderful Fundraising Team.

Staff Fundraising

Fundraise for our work with your staff and community. Whether you fancy a bake sale, walking challenge or raffle, every penny raised makes a difference. You could even consider making us your 'Charity of the Year' and watched those small acts of kindness turn into a big impact! there are lots of ideas on our website to get you started.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsoring one our many activities can be a great way of getting your brand out there. By sponsoring us, you’re helping us to maximise the amount of money we can raise from events. As part of your sponsorship, we promote your company in our publicity and connect you into local communities of businesses, supporters and families.

Matched Funding

Offering matched funding is a great ways to engage and reward staff who get involved in fundraising activities for causes that are close to their hearts. Consider topping up or doubling any effort your staff makes... and show your support for local organisations whilst boosting morale. Don't forget, double the money equals double benefit to children across the North East.

Payroll Giving

Payroll giving is a convenient, tax-free way for your staff to make a regular donation. There are different ways to give, from a regular contribution to 'rounding down' their salary to the nearest pound. Many different payroll giving schemes exist, so you can find the one which fits your organisation. We can also provide a company-wide total every year, so you can shout about the shared impact of your team.
