If you have a corporate charity partnership at work, this post is for YOU!
The team here at Doitforcharity and Skyline have organised countless successful fundraising trips, treks and cycles for corporates and their nominated charities. All have generated huge exposure for the partnerships, raised incredible funds for charity and strengthened relationships within each company.
Bespoke events are a fantastic way to challenge your colleagues, whilst providing much needed support and awareness for your charity partner. Previous corporate events organised by Skyline have seen amazingly positive results such as exposure in the press and media, not to mention award nominations. Many short-term charity partnerships have also extended to long-term, due to the events huge success!
Taking part in a specific event for your charity differs to the usual fundraisers your company may be used to; treks and cycles take dedication, training and a firm commitment. It’s a great way to reflect your company’s ethics and enthusiasm.
Last year Skyline worked closely with the charity War Child and their corporate supporters Kennedys. Brave Kennedys employees decided to tackle the incredible Atlas Mountains Trek to the summit of Mount Toubkal, and in October 2013 the 34 strong team began their epic adventure.
The trek went incredibly well. An enormous sense of achievement was felt by all, relationships within the company were strengthened and all trekkers were genuinely moved by the environment itself and local help they received throughout. Skyline’s team of mountain leaders, medics and local porters kept all trekkers in good spirits throughout and were on hand at all times to ensure the trek was a success.
All 34 participants reached the summit of the mighty Mount Toubkal and raised an incredible £45,000 for War Child (and counting!). The charity and their partner are already in talks with Skyline to take on their next event for 2014.
The trek was featured in Fundraising magazine and the Law Society Gazette, AND was such a success that War Child and Kennedys have extended their initial short-term partnership for another year.
So if you think a team of your colleagues would be interested in doing something truly incredible for your corporate charity partner then get in touch! We’re open to ideas for bespoke events, treks and cycles and you are of course welcome to book on to any of our long-standing open events too!
It’s time to take ‘team-building’ to the extreme..
