We appreciate any activity you would like to take on and we will support in every way we can – here are some of the ways you can get involved.
Why not sponsor one of our events? There are a number of sponsorship opportunities available, such as the refreshments for our Rowathon, or sponsor a hole at our Golf Day. All of our events are widely advertised in the media and within the community which brings a multitude of benefits such as brand awareness, good will with your customers and something to make employees feel proud of where they work.
Charity of the Year
Many businesses select a charity of the year to direct all of their fundraising efforts towards. This not only helps the charity financially, but also raises important awareness of our service among your employees. We also feel working closely with a charity like Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey can bring a whole host of benefits to your business such as –
- Motivating staff and making them proud of where they work
- Stand out in the local market
- A real understanding if one of your employees should ever be diagnosed, that they know where we are
- Building brand profile
We will work with your business to ensure we develop the very best partnership for both of us.
Cancer in the workplace
Current statistics predict that by 2020 one in two of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime. Which means it’s likely that cancer will have an impact in your workplace.
We can provide support to any of your staff that are affected by cancer. We can come in and provide an awareness presentation to your staff and management teams about Macmillan Jersey and how, when and where they and their supporters can access our services. All of our services are completely confidential. If you would like to find out more please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Payroll giving is becoming more popular in Jersey now a change in policy with the States of Jersey, allows charities to claim tax back on the accumulated donations from an employee.
For example, if 50 employees gave just £10 per month, Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey would not only receive £6,000 in donations, but we could claim a further 25% back, boosting their donations by £1,250.
If you are a company that would like to set up Payroll Giving for Macmillan Cancer Support (Jersey), please and we can help you through the process.
Gifts in kind
There are so many ways to support Macmillan Jersey and it isn’t always with money. Can you help us raise awareness of our services by co-branding a window or a van? Do you have professional services you can support us with such as IT support or financial advice? We’re happy to work with you to identify ways we can work together.
We would publicise your generosity and support through our website, PR and marketing communications.
We have a range of collection tins and buckets that we would be delighted to provide you with. Perhaps staff could put one on their desk and pop their change into when they have any. If you are a retailer and would like to put one on your counter we would be happy to drop one off to you.
