Fundraising at work

Looking to support a charity in your workplace?

Whether you already have a corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy in place or are looking to develop one, are a group of employees who want to impact their local community or a specific sector, choosing to work with the Melanoma Fund can be incredibly beneficial.

Supporting a charity can help motivate and unite your staff, and by generating positive PR opportunities and raising your company profile you will help create impact on melanoma and other forms of skin cancer today, and in future years to come.

Whether you are looking for a ‘charity of the year’, are looking for team building opportunities, would like to hold a one-off event or want to get involved with a volunteering day, we are here to support your commitment.

We have listed some useful ideas below which will help you decide how you wish to get involved.

One-off donation or grant

If there is an opportunity to apply for a charitable donation or grant from your company why not take action? We are happy to support your application in any way required.

Staff Fundraising

Staff fundraising is a fantastic way to raise donations for a good cause. Creating a day or an event is fun, simple and great for team building. See our fundraising page for a range of ideas. We’ll also be on hand to provide assistance and resources to support your fundraising activities.

Volunteering Day

If you can generate a small team of people over a weekend, we can generate an event! From assisting at a free skin check clinic to educating people on the danger of sunburn, we can ensure that your work is engaging, fun and impactful.

Matched Funding

Matched funding is a fantastic way for your company to promote its commitment to corporate social responsibility and for you to make any personal donations go even further. Make sure to ask your employer if they have a scheme in place and then go for it!

Donate via Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is a way to donate directly from your salary each month before Income Tax is deducted. You can donate through Payroll Giving if you are an employee paid weekly or monthly through PAYE, or if you receive a company and/or personal pension and your provider deducts through PAYE. There are no extra tax forms to fill in – just ask your payroll team to set up payroll giving to SHP.

Event Sponsorship

By sponsoring one of our events or skin check clinics, you get your company logo displayed on the associated marketing and promotional materials. Sponsorship is a huge help to the Melanoma Fund as it helps to fund the running costs of an event which in turn increases profitability and reach.

Event Organisation

Why not organise your own fundraising activity? You could do anything from holding a quiz night or dress down day, a head shave, chest wax or immersing yourself in bath full of mushy peas. We can provide you with help and advice.

Non-cash Donations

Donating a product or service to us will save us valuable funds. A donation can be anything ranging from raffle and tombola prizes to specialist services or products such as sunscreen or UPV clothing. These can be tailored to each of our national campaigns.
