Muscular Dystrophy UK is the charity bringing individuals, families and professionals together to beat muscle-wasting conditions wherever they may be – and this includes at work. From individual workers making regular monthly donations, to the many companies who are our corporate partners, we couldn’t do this without you.
The benefits of corporate partnership
Corporate partnerships are clearly beneficial to us – they raise thousands of pounds a year to help people with muscle-wasting conditions. They help us invest in high quality research, ensure the NHS provides the services people need and provide grants for specialist equipment. Find out more about what we do.
But our partners also tell us that these partnerships are equally beneficial to them:
- Offering their staff the opportunity to work together for a common cause, increasing morale, encouraging creativity, improving communications and promoting team-building.
- Showing their customers and business partners that the company cares, projecting a positive corporate image.
There are many different ways your company can support us.
Supporting us at work as an individual
If you don’t own or run a business, you can still support us at work. The Give As You Earn (GAYE) scheme, also known as payroll giving, allows you to set up a regular donation that comes straight out of your monthly salary. Or you can persuade your company to consider a corporate partnership – there are lots of different ways to do this.
How you can fundraise at work
Our Charity of the year partnerships inspire staff, strengthen teams, frequently exceed fundraising expectations and often lead to widespread media coverage for both organisations. Find out more about our Charity of the year partnerships.
We have many projects – some are ongoing and others need funding to begin. Your company can make one-off or recurrent donations to help fund or fully fund a project. Find out more about project donation.
We have a wide range of events for companies to sponsor, allowing you to target new audiences and meet your marketing needs. Find out more about sponsoring an event.
Increase your sales and develop a positive brand identity by selling a particular product in support of Muscular Dystrophy UK. Find out more about cause-related marketing.
Also known as payroll giving, this allows you to set up a regular donation to Muscular Dystrophy UK that comes straight out of your monthly salary. And we effectively get even more than you give because your donation is paid before your salary is taxed. Find out more about Give as you earn.
We are extremely proud of our excellent track record delivering highly successful corporate partnerships. From small start-up companies and multinational corporations, we work with a wide variety of corporate partners in the way that suits them best. Find out more about corporate partnerships with us.
