Employee fundraising

Fundraising together at work is a great way to boost team morale, learn new skills and make a ton of money for a fantastic local cause.

Whether you’re fitness fanatics, cake makers or crochet lovers – there’s no limit to the way you can fundraise.

Whatever you’re doing to raise money, we’re here to support you with your fundraising efforts. We can supply merchandise, tools and advice to help maximise both the funds and the FUN!

Plus many employers can also supercharge your fundraising efforts with match funding.

Employee volunteering

Sometimes we offer volunteering opportunities for groups of employees which may range from painting to gardening.

Please send an email to bht.charity@nhs.net if you’d like to be included on our employee volunteering list.

Cause-related marketing

Cause-related marketing is a fantastic way to show your commitment to the NHS and your local community. You donate a set amount from the sale of each product or service, and in return, we allow you to use our charity logo on your product and promotional material (under license) for a set period of time.

We’ll draw up a simple contract between your business and our charity, setting out the arrangement and amount donated per product sold.

If you’re looking to promote a certain product, widen your customer base and get ahead of your competitors, cause-related marketing is a great way to do it.

If you’d like to discuss cause-related marketing, please send an email to bht.charity@nhs.net or call the team on 01494 734 773.

Set up a regular corporate donation

Some businesses like to set up a regular monthly gift which helps the charity to budget more effectively. In return, you’ll get invitations to special events, copies of our newsletter and regular thank yous on our social media. Easy!

Payroll giving

Payroll giving is a tax effective way to donate to Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust Charitable Fund on a regular basis. It allows employees to donate to us directly from their pay, without paying tax on it.

Because the donation comes from their gross pay, every £1 they give will only actually cost them 80p, or 60p if they’re a higher rate taxpayer.

You can read more about payroll giving on the gov.uk website.
