Our life-saving work wouldn’t be possible without the extraordinary generosity of our corporate partners. Being a national charity, we partner with companies of all sizes on a local, regional and national basis and are always keen to make sure each partnership is mutually beneficial.
Below are some of the ways companies can help us to support special care babies across the UK or click on our partners to see who we are currently working with.
Charity of the Year
Does your company have a Charity of the Year scheme that you could nominate Bliss for? We have a long history of successful partnerships with companies of all sizes. Key to this approach is engaging and informing your staff about how they can get involved and the value the partnership brings. All our corporate partners are assigned an account manager who will work with you to develop a fundraising plan that incorporates your goals and ideas to make sure it fits with your CSR aims.
Sponsoring a Bliss project or event can provide financial return on investment, a focus for your PR, promotion through Bliss channels and a positive image and association to staff, clients, customers and suppliers alike. Our ongoing partnerships with Mothercare, Angelcare and being the first ever Prudential RideLondon Charity of the Year (2014) mean we have high level of brand awareness and trust in communities across the UK.
Fundraising events with colleagues increase team spirit and engaging staff in your local community initiatives is a great way to build staff loyalty and boost morale. Bliss can help with activities from volunteering projects and office bake-offs to team challenges such as trekking, dragon boat racing and abseiling. Click here to see our events calendar.
By making a donation to Bliss every time a customer purchases your product, you can enhance your sales. This provides a unique selling point and allows access to Bliss’ audience. According to the recent Cone Communications/Echo Global CSR Study, 91 per cent of global consumers are likely to switch brands to one associated with a good cause, given comparable price and quality.
Gift in Kind
Corporate support does not have to be financial. You can give invaluable assistance by donating your time, products and services, therefore allowing Bliss to plough more funds into supporting premature and sick babies.
Bliss sweet boxes provide sweets in work places and raise vital funds for Bliss. Sweet boxes can go into any type of business, from offices to retail. Ten pence from each packet of sweets comes to Bliss and this raises over £50,000 each year, so the more Bliss sweet boxes out there, the better!
