Does your employer know about the work of Retina UK? if they haven’t heard about us, could we tell them about the important work we do?
If you work for a company of any size there may be an opportunity for you to secure support for Retina UK.
You could nominate us for charity of the year, or see whether your employer would consider matching any sums that you raise through your own fundraising activities, known as ‘match funding’.
Depending on the size of the company you work for, they may have a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy, and perhaps a charity committee. In smaller organisations decisions about charity support may be taken by the HR team or the chief executive/managing director themselves.
If you would like some advice before you approach your employer about supporting Retina UK, please call Fiona Leahy, Corporate and Community Fundraising Officer, on 01280 815900 or email fiona.leahy@RetinaUK.org.uk.
