Support from businesses can make a big difference to Springboard and there are many ways your company can help us.
We’ve listed a few suggestions below, please contact Anne on email@example.com if you would like more information. Please do get in contact if you would like to do something completely different! We love to hear new ideas and are always keen to work in partnership with the organisations that support us.
Springboard is registered with Work for Good, which makes it easy for small businesses to donate directly to us (and meet all the legal requirements) whilst publicising their donation at the same time. Click here to find out more.
Purchase items from our wish list
Springboard has set up two Amazon wish lists, these contain many of the toys and essentials that we need to run the centre. If you would like to gift Springboard any of these items we would be really grateful. Link HERE to find out more
Host a Springboard collection box
Every year £1k-2k is donated using our collection boxes and buckets…proving all that spare change does add up!
Do you have space for a collection box at your business / shop or know someone who does?
As an employer, do you or would you consider matching your employee’s donations to charity?. This could be via a payroll giving platform or by an individual completing a sponsored event.
Gifts in kind /Sponsor a session
Supporting Springboard is not always about giving money! Support can be given in a variety of ways: gifts could include equipment, expertise or even time. We also run a variety of different sessions during the year that would benefit from a sponsor, such as our Dad’s group ‘Saturdads’ and our holiday play group ‘Playdates’.
You may also be able to claim tax relief on your gift.
Charity of the year
By choosing to support Springboard over a set period of time, you can really make a difference. A Charity of the year or month partnership is a very rewarding way of involving your staff and customers and makes a difference too.
Even if you are a large company which supports a national charity, you may also wish to choose Springboard to support a local charity as well.
Take part in an event
Springboard organises several large fundraising events a year. Recent events have included golf days, skydives and sponsored walks. Would your company like to enter a team or help sponsor an event? Please check our events page to see what events are coming up.
Volunteering / Community day
Springboard is always grateful to volunteers, without whom we could not continue. There are a variety of volunteering options from being a Trustee or support in the form of Company Community days.
Local companies have supported Springboard in the past by helping provide time to complete valuable garden and building maintenance: painting rooms and sheds, pressure washing our play area and toys, cleaning windows, guttering and tip runs.
