Because a corporate with CRIS Cancer Foundation offers mutual benefits. Your corporate and employee collaboration provide CRIS Cancer Foundation with sustainable potential for their development.
Why partner with us?
Fundraising at work is fun, motivating and great for staff morale. We offer our own events for you to take part in, can tailor events to suit you, or simply support your events and ideas. Whichever route you choose, we’ll champion you all the way, providing advice, fundraising materials and help with media coverage.
Ways to partner with us
1. One time or regular donations
2. Strategic Philanthropy Through Funding Specific Projects
Choose from one of CCF many scientific research projects that are underway in the UK and in Spain across Adult Research/ Paediatric Research.
Follow the progress of the project with regular updates through the year, or fund the development of a research facility.
Alternately if your CSR is inclined towards education and training, fund one of our PhD researchers who is engaging in translational research or research that has direct clinical applications and follow his/ her progress
3. Cause Related Marketing
Enhance your CSR profile and reach more customers through our fundraising events; get visibility for your brand with our wide selection of professional and personal contacts.
Marketing packages can be tailored to your organisation and objectives, providing a package of media features such as advertisement in our souvenir event brochure, press articles with our media partners, table sponsorship for individuals or corporate entertaining, and high visibility branding on-site and displayed on plasma screens around the venue.
Ask for sponsorship details for our annual Charity Gala Ball- “A night of Heroes”- to be held on 30th September 2016 at the Connaught Rooms where 400 guests are expected to attend; packages ranging from £3,000 to £60,000.
4. Employee Fundraising
Employee fundraising is a great way to create common goals and shared pride, which is brilliant for staff morale and team spirit. It can also generate goodwill with your customers, suppliers and the local community.
We can work with you to develop a calendar of fundraising events and help communicate the partnership aims to your staff. We have a wealth of fun and innovative fundraising ideas that provide an easy and cost-effective way to raise money to help life-saving research eg ONYABIKE on Barclays Trading Floor and Google, London.
We will arrange the event and organise activities for your employees on site or off site and ask them for funds around it; we only ask that you match their donations to CRIS UK, with no minimum fundraising amount.
The specialist skills that volunteers from the corporate sector bring are invaluable to our work. CRIS UK has many volunteers who organise, mobilise and make our fundraising and awareness building work a success through the year. There are social and sporting events like the Royal Parks Half Marathon and the Charity Gala that are the backbone of our fundraising efforts.
We can be a recognised charity to volunteer with for your organisation and help create opportunities for those who feel for the cause of Cancer Research but may not be able to take the time out to do it.
This work can vary from fundraising to blog writing to social media volunteering or to providing specific skills like graphic designing!
We would love to hear from you. Together we can make a big difference. VKrishnaswamy@criscancer.org.uk
