Making a difference with corporate charity events
According to findings from The Chartered Institute of Fundraising, nine out of every 10 businesses believe supporting good causes is important.
Meanwhile, a total of 60 per cent feel it is essential to do so.
At a time when everyone in the UK and beyond is feeling the pinch, it has never been more critical for organisations to do their bit.
Corporate charity events permit businesses to not only boost their brand and engage their employees but, more importantly, give back to society. These gatherings provide a unique opportunity for organisations to demonstrate their commitment to corporate social responsibility while fostering lasting change for their favourite cause.
In this article, we’ll explore how your company can make a difference by hosting a corporate charity event.
What are your values?
As an organisation, your mission, vision, and values are the foundations of your business, which is why when organising a charity event, it is essential to select a cause that resonates with these ideals.
By aligning your corporate values with charitable causes, you can demonstrate the authenticity of your dedication to what your company stands for.
Whether you are supporting culture and education, healthcare, environmental issues, or any other worthwhile causes, it is important you choose something that speaks to the heart of who you are as a company.
Building your team
Corporate charity events present the perfect opportunity to engage employees outside the workplace and encourage them to be the best team possible. Planning these types of events takes a lot of work, and by involving your staff in the planning and execution, you can give them a sense of pride and belonging.
As your team works together towards a common charitable goal, they will only strengthen their relationships, boost productivity and foster a positive company culture.
The true power of corporate charity events lies in your organisation’s ability to leverage your contacts, networks and reach. Now more than ever, businesses are more aware of their responsibility to their community and charitable causes, which is why this is the perfect opportunity to collaborate with clients, suppliers and partners. Building this broad network of people will help amplify your event’s impact, and the joint support will create a ripple effect of positive change, making a real difference in the world.
