52% of the UK public – 34.5 million people – know someone who has been diagnosed with a form of dementia so it’s very likely that many of your work colleagues have experienced a friend or relative impacted by dementia.
Supporting the Forget-me-not Chorus at work can be a great way to bring teams together, raise awareness of our work and support a local charity making a real difference in communities across Wales.
A dedicated member of the Forget-me-not Team can come and chat with you and your Board, CSR Committee or colleagues to find out about your goals, and the ways in which we can support your fundraising ideas.
Charity of the Year
Nominating us as your Charity of the Year demonstrates your company’s commitment to supporting an innovative local charity that really does make a difference. Developing a mutually-beneficial partnership can have huge positives for all involved.
Supporting the Forget-me-not Chorus can help to:
1. Raise your business profile.
2. Show your customers, the community and your shareholders how much you care.
3. Raise employee morale through team-building and fundraising events.
We will work with you to plan a programme that suits you, and that will benefit your business just as much as our charity.
"At Eversheds-Sutherland, we demonstrate enormous commitment to Corporate Responsibility, pledging to positively impact the communities in which our employees work and live. It is particularly important to the firm to maintain local links and consequently, Eversheds-Sutherland Cardiff chose the local charity, Forget-Me-Not Chorus as one of its partners for 2020.
FMNC benefits from the numerous fundraising initiatives of the Cardiff office and, in turn, regularly welcomes our staff to choir rehearsals and performances so that we can witness the impact that the charity has on the families taking part.
Importantly, we see at first hand the huge difference that Eversheds-Sutherland donations are making to those affected by dementia in communities across Wales."
Ways Your Business Can Help
Matched funding can be a huge boost to any money you raise, sometimes doubling the amount you’re able to donate. Many larger companies offer matched funding schemes, but there’s no reason why smaller companies can’t too. If you’re the boss, it’s a great way to motivate your team and get them working together.
Give as you earn
Payroll giving is a no fuss, tax-effective way to donate to charity. We can help you make the arrangements so that a donation is made every month to the Forget-me-not Chorus. As an employee, it’s one of the simplest ways you can show your support, and as an employer, a Give As you Earn scheme demonstrates your commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility.
Also referred to as 'workplace giving’ payroll giving provides employees with a flexible means to make charitable donations to their preferred causes. As donations are deducted before tax, it is tax effective. This means that you can easily and regularly make a difference to the good causes that matter to you the most, with reduced impact on your income.
