Whether it’s an awards event, client incentive or general get-together, there are all sorts of ways you can donate to York Against Cancer. For example, you might consider giving a portion of any ticket sales to the charity, or hosting a raffle on the night. Even a simple collection tin is a great place to start – and you can talk about us on your social media pages.
Implement a Give as You Earn scheme
To encourage regular donations among your employees, why not set up a Give as You Earn scheme? Speak to your payroll team to set up a tax-free donation direct from your team’s salaries. You could include this as one of your employee benefits, and discuss it in company literature such as the employee handbook. As a thank you to your employees we will send you updates on our work.
Representatives from the charity can offer free talks to your employees about the realities of living with cancer. You can use your workplace to host these talks, promote the cause on social media, and have a collection tin or donation forms for your employees. Your teams can sign up to regular donations if they wish through our secure website.
Offer volunteering breaks
Not every contribution has to be financial. We encourage employers to offer their staff paid time off to volunteer. Your teams could help out in our shops or run an event.
