Cliona’s Foundation works with a variety of businesses all over Ireland to increase awareness for the work that we do and to raise funds for struggling families who are in dire need.
Our Business Supporters are essential for the sustainability of our work and enables us to plan for the future. Often the applications that Cliona’s Foundation receives are of an urgent nature and need funding immediately, by having these partnerships in place we know that the funds are there when these applications come in.
Every business supporter that we have is extremely important to us and we understand that each company is different and we ensure that we work closely with them to tailor a partnership that best suits each company and its staff.
It has been found that these partnerships build brand loyalty amongst customers as many customers would rather do business with companies that are ethical and stand for something other than just profits – customers want companies that care.
There are also lots of benefits associated with getting involved as a business supporter. As well as enhancing your business reputation and building staff morale, it positively influences employee and customer loyalty and strengthens relationships with suppliers.
There are a number of ways that your business can partner with Cliona’s Foundation.
Giving a financial donation to Cliona’s Foundation is a wonderful way to help struggling families in Ireland. There are five key levels of financial support ranging from Level 1 at €1,500 to Level 5 at €50,000.
Charity of the Year
Companies all over Ireland are recognising the benefits of developing Charity of the Year partnerships. Cliona’s Foundation would love to be chosen as your Charity of the Year partner and would be happy to work with your organisation to develop a strategic programme of fundraising and volunteering for the year ahead. We would greatly welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss all of the opportunities and options available.
Cause Related Marketing
Cause related marketing is about developing a mutually beneficial marketing relationship which may or may not include a financial donation. Cause related marketing enables companies to improve their brand, generate business and retain customers.
Staff fundraising projects can increase morale and team building within an organisation while also generating goodwill with customer interaction. Cliona’s Foundation can work with your staff to organise exciting fundraising events with anything from coffee mornings, cycles to fun and theme days.
Another way to increase staff morale and enthusiasm would be with a Matching Programme. A matching programme is where the company will match any funds raised by the staff– doubling the donation to the charity.
