Corporates have lots to offer to charities and non-profit organisations, including their time, services, resources, and money. We at Findacure are very keen to develop our corporate relationships, and we believe we have a lot to offer in return!
There are three main ways your company can get involved:
We are approaching companies to ask them to fund projects or give general donations, including through Charity Of The Year schemes. In the past we have received donations for the empowerment workshops, the peer mentoring, and gifts-in-kind for fundraising purposes. We are really grateful for any support we can get in this form.
Events are a big part of what we do. Our networking events and conferences provide a space for attendees to form new collaborations and learn about certain topics, and for us to spread awareness of our own work. Our training workshops provide patient groups with much-needed knowledge and skills to better support patients and become more effective research partners. As a small charity, we do not have the budget to run these events so we rely on corporate sponsorship or grants. We would be delighted if your company could get involved by sponsoring or donating to an upcoming event/project:
Offering your services to Findacure is a valuable way your company can get involved with our projects. We particularly benefit from legal, financial, marketing, fundraising, health economic, clinical trial and other science related advice, though we welcome companies from all backgrounds to get in touch to discuss potential partnerships. To find out more, please contact [email protected].
We recognise that every corporate relationship is different and are happy to offer a tailored package of benefits depending on the wishes of the company. This often includes brand awareness, invitation to Findacure events, and reports of what your company has helped us to achieve, but this is very flexible and we are open to negotiation.
Past partners have been delighted with our conduct, professionalism, and enthusiasm. But don’t just take our word for it…
“Our ongoing collaboration with Findacure has been, and continues to be, exceptionally rewarding and our staff that volunteer to work on this project obtain immense job satisfaction from the opportunity. It is a true pleasure to work with such an enthusiastic and passionate charity, who are playing an instrumental role in promoting collaboration and developing treatments for patients with rare diseases. The work we do together spans health economics, publications and design – allowing us to share a range of expertise and encouraging people from different teams within Costello Medical to work together. Furthermore, Findacure’s commitment to promoting interactions between stakeholders in the rare disease area is fantastic; their networking events and scientific conferences are the perfect place to meet others from industry, as well as those from the public sector, and they are an immensely valuable opportunity to hear from patients themselves.”
