Charity of the Year

Nominating us as your Charity of the Year is a unique opportunity to unite your staff behind an inspiring cause and demonstrate your company’s commitment to making a difference.

The benefits of appointing a charity of the year

There are lots of advantages for you.

  • It helps to get the whole organisation pulling together towards the same objectives.
  • Your support becomes more corporate and strategic, rather than personal and piecemeal.
  • It’s easier to measure and manage your activities in order to support your CSR objectives.
  • When your employees choose the charity, that’s great for engagement.
  • Research shows that employees prefer to work for organisations that care – so that’s good news for recruitment and retention.

What it means to have Katharine House as your Charity of the Year

  • We’ll provide a dedicated contact to work with you, helping you to plan a programme and come up with ideas, and who will provide all the support you need throughout the year.
  • We’ll also build a close relationship with your business: you’ll be invited to come and see the hospice for yourself, and participate in major events.
  • We’ll work with your marketing and communications department throughout the year with support for press and promotional activities.
  • We can put you in touch with other Charity of the Year partners who can help share their experience and successful ideas.

What will you have to do?

  • That’s up to you, but we’ll talk it all through with you, help you generate ideas that best fit your business, and support you to get everything in place and running smoothly.
  • We’ll support you to put together a strategy that maximises employee engagement, team-building and corporate social responsibility.
