Corporate Fundraising

Every year we work with companies throughout the Highlands, helping us to raise the funds we need to deliver our vital services. These pages provide information on the different ways your company can get involved as well as telling you a bit about some of the partnerships we already have in place. You can also download our Corporate Fundraising leaflet. If you have any questions, ideas or need further information please contact our Corporate Fundraiser, Lisa Long on 01463 246471 or l.long@highlandhospice.org.uk

Ways your company can support Highland Hospice

Charity of the Year and one-off events

Supporting Highland Hospice over a set period of time (it doesn’t have to be a year) is a lot of fun and gives your staff the opportunity to get to know us and get more involved.  It’s also a great way to further a charitable culture at your organisation or to mark a special anniversary or occasion.

Our Corporate Fundraiser, Lisa, can help you plan a calendar of events to suit your business.  These could involve customers suppliers and staff and incorporate fundraising, volunteering, sharing skills and giving in kind.  We work with companies on one-off events too…. From black tie dinners to car raffles.

Pay for a Day

A lot can happen in a day and at Highland Hospice every moment counts.  Our nursing team will stop at nothing to make sure our patients and their families have everything they need each and every day.  You can help them with this by pledging to ‘pay for a day’ at Highland Hospice.  See our Pay for a Day page for more details.

Volunteering

If you’re looking for a volunteering opportunity for your team, please do get in touch.  We are often looking for help at our events and there are a number of volunteering roles available for individuals.

Sponsorship

We’re always keen to find sponsors to work on our events, to maximise event income and to add value to our corporate partnerships.  Through sponsorship, you could reach out to the whole Highland community, or support an event attracting an important customer base for you.

Current opportunities include:

Sunflower Ball

Our well established biennial social event in a marquee in the grounds of Leys Castle and attracting 200-300 people mostly from the Inverness business community.

Run for Colour

Now in its fourth year with the added attraction of an assault course at each colour station, attracting 700 – 1000 individuals and families mostly in the younger age brackets.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving allows your employees to support the Hospice with a deduction from their salary taken before tax.  Tis way every £1 they donate will only cost them 80p, or 60p for higher rate tax payers.  It’s a great way for an employer to support an individual charity like the Hospice or simply to encourage charitable giving by your employees.  Contact the fundraising team for more advice on having your company registered for Payroll Giving or go straight to the Charities Aid Foundation website www.cafonline.org

#wearyellowday

The last week of April is Highland Hospice Fundraising Week and the focus of our #wearyellow campaign. Simply wear one yellow item - or if you’re brave, dress fully in yellow – for the day and donate to Highland Hospice.  To make the day more special why not host a bake sale at work or hold a yellow themed staff social.  This year we are also asking you to nominate your boss to take the Custard Challenge - read more here.

#mincepiemonday

The second Monday in December is #mincepiemonday, a chance to get together at work for mince pies and cake while making a donation to the Hospice.   The aim each #mincepiemonday is to raise the £7,800 it takes to run Highland Hospice on Christmas Day.
