Giving Through Your Company
There are many different ways to support us through your company, whether you are an employee or an employer.

Charity of the Year
Could you adopt The JCT Children’s Foundation as your charity of the year? One of the best ways for a company to show their corporate social responsibility is through its workforce. A charity of the year relationship can be a successful tool for team building and boosting staff morale, and it can provide some of the most valuable returns through enhanced motivation, loyalty and staff development. You might like to fundraise for a particular project or aim to support a specific number of children. Whatever your aims, we can provide fundraising packs, materials, ideas and support.

Matched Giving
A practical way to encourage your workforce is to match fund their efforts and rewarding them for their generosity. It boosts morale and encourages team building. Another benefit is a reduced tax bill – you don’t have to pay Corporation Tax on the money you use to match employee giving. Please see the ‘previous events’ section, in particular the Bath Half Marathon event where NPower doubled the amount raised by Tom Eckersley.

Employee Involvement

  • Place collection boxes in your reception, office or dining area.
  • Organise a dress down day.
  • Display JCT posters and literature.
  • Support a JCT event.
  • Hold a quiz evening or raffle for colleagues.
  • Get sponsored to take part in an event such as a marathon or fun run. The JCT Children’s Foundation often has guaranteed places on runs and you would be very welcome to get involved.
  • Check to see if your company runs a matched giving scheme.
  • Pro bono work: use your professional skills to help in a range of aspects of our work.

Donations are always very gratefully received and much appreciated. Companies (and unincorporated associations) can claim tax relief for qualifying donations to UK charities. See for more information.
