Sussex Wildlife Trust will also feature the company on our website, feature you in our Wildlife Magazine, and send a welcome pack with membership certificate and other wildlife content.
To find out more about the different options for Business Membership please contact our Corporate and Community Fundraising Officer using the contact form below.
2. By organising a Work for Wildlife session for you and your staff
Give your staff the chance to take part in important conservation work, supporting the local wildlife and wellbeing of the community. Whether it is an informal teambuilding day or simply the chance for your staff to get together and put something back into the community, we have an opportunity for you. These are great opportunities for team development. We do charge for these experiences to help cover our costs and support our work.
To find out more about the different options for a Work for Wildlife session please contact our Corporate and Community Fundraising Officer using the contact form below.
3. By promoting Payroll Giving to your staff
Employers can give to the Sussex Wildlife Trust by setting up a payroll giving scheme and encouraging staff to donate through their PAYE.
Giving direct from pay is tax free and helps the Sussex Wildlife Trust make concrete plans for the future. If employees pledge £10 from their gross salary each month, it will only cost £7.80, but the Sussex Wildlife Trust receives £10 thanks to the Inland Revenue. Any employee can join the Give As You Earn scheme if their salary or pension is taxed through PAYE and the employer offers a GAYE scheme.
4. By getting involved in the sponsorship of a special project
If you're interested in sponsoring something specific we'd be happy to discuss this with you. Please get in contact with our Corporate and Community Fundraising officer using the form below.
