Become a business partner

Is your business thinking of partnering with a local Sussex-based charity?

Sussex Wildlife Trust believe that corporate charity partnerships should be mutually beneficial and based on shared values. That's why we make sure our corporate partnerships are not a one-way street, where companies give and we take.

We believe that your company can benefit greatly from a partnership with Sussex Wildlife Trust as we help your business and your staff to connect more with nature and benefit from the joy and well-being that happens from connecting with their outdoor environment.

Why should your business support Sussex Wildlife Trust?

  • You will be making a difference to the natural environment in Sussex that we all depend on, helping us to do more for wildlife locally
  • It will help to raise your profile locally
  • We'll work with you to find ways to engage your staff in activities to raise money, volunteer on our reserves or connect with their local natural environment
  • You'll be in good company, joining a growing number of local businesses who want to support nature in Sussex

2. By attending an employee Work for Wildlife Day

Give your staff the chance to take part in important conservation work, supporting the local wildlife and wellbeing of the community. Whether it is an informal teambuilding day or simply the chance for your staff to get together and put something back into the community, we always welcome extra pairs of hands. These are great opportunities for team development. We charge from £15 per head for these experiences to help cover our costs and support our work.

3. By promoting Payroll Giving to your staff

Employers can give to the Sussex Wildlife Trust by setting up a payroll giving scheme and encouraging staff to donate through their PAYE.

Giving direct from pay is tax free and helps the Sussex Wildlife Trust make concrete plans for the future. If employees pledge £10 from their gross salary each month, it will only cost £7.80, but the Sussex Wildlife Trust receives £10 thanks to the Inland Revenue. Any employee can join the Give As You Earn scheme if their salary or pension is taxed through PAYE and the employer offers a GAYE scheme.

4. By getting involved in the sponsorship of a special project

If you're interested in sponsoring something specific we'd be happy to discuss this with you. Please get in contact with our Corporate and Community Fundraising team using the form below.
