Company and Corporate Giving
There are many ways that your company can work with Care for the Wild and we are currently actively seeking partners who wish to show their support for wildlife, here in the UK, and around the world.
1% for the Planet
We’re proud to be an approved charity for 1% for the Planet. If your company is a member of this scheme then we are approved by them as a reputable, charitable organisation that you can donate to. 1% for the Planet is a growing global movement of more than 1000 companies that donate 1% of their sales to a network of more than 3000 approved environmental organizations worldwide. Care for the Wild has been a member of 1% for the Planet for more than three years and would like to thank its members for all the support we have received. We have plenty of projects that your company can support via this scheme and we are happy to discuss bespoke projects/support also.
Do you run a business, or work for a company that would like to make a real difference to wildlife? If so, we’ve got a brand new ‘business supporter’ scheme that gives you the chance of directly contributing to our work whilst engaging your staff. Our new scheme is flexible and inclusive to suit your business, whatever its size and ambition.
The business supporter scheme has four levels of annual membership that help us to rescue, protect and defend wildlife around the world:
- Wildlife Guardian – our bespoke scheme from just £2500
- Wildlife Defender – a tailored package for large businesses for just £1000
- Wildlife Protector – a great package for medium size businesses for only £500
- Wildlife Rescuer – a package for even the smallest of business at just £300
All of our schemes are packed with features and benefits for wildlife, your company and your staff. With all of the packages you will receive a bespoke framed certificate, recognition on our website, press and PR opportunities plus the options to get involved with our projects.
Developing individual partnerships with our supporters allows us to work together for the benefit of wildlife, so join us today and see the real difference we can make by working together. If you are interested in finding out more about these schemes, please email Jill on .
Staff Challenge Events
These fun days can be designed to suit your company and the number of staff, perhaps as one site or teams. The degree of challenge can range from organising a “dress up/down” or themed dress day where everyone donates a small amount to “express themselves” through to an arranged activity, perhaps at a wildlife rescue centre, providing new accommodation or painting existing.
Your staff may choose to take on their own challenges such as running a 10K race or marathon, skydiving, mountain climbing or activity they can imagine and we will be happy to help promote and work with them to fundraise.
GAYE (Give as you Earn)
There’s a wonderfully easy way for you to give more to Care for the Wild while paying less – CAF Give As You Earn – the UK’s number one payroll giving scheme.
CAF Give As You Earn means:
- Regular donations come from your salary before tax
- For a basic rate tax-payer every pound given only costs you 80p – even less for higher rate taxpayers
- Care for the Wild is registered as a charity to receive funds via this scheme
- Care for the Wild can plan their activities sustainably, in the knowledge that we have a pattern of regular giving each month
- It allows you to keep an eye on your charitable giving
You just need to make sure your employer is signed up to the scheme – they could even be boosting your giving by matching your donations – and soon you can quickly, easily and efficiently be donating to Care for the Wild and be personally helping us to continue to help wild animals in need in the UK and around the world.
