At Spurgeons we believe in the power of collaborative partnerships. We know that through partnership work, we can make a very real difference to the lives of children, young people and their families.
Working with our partners across the UK has enabled us to help thousands of children and families, to keep our Children's Centres open and free to users. We develop our tools and refine our approach to ensure we are able to give hope to every child and family that needs us.
We value the contribution each of our partners makes to the work we do, and we know that by tailoring our approach we can create bespoke opportunities to fit your needs and reflect your values. We are the ideal charity to partner with if you are looking to feel more involved in giving to a UK focussed charity.
We are committed to providing dedicated support to our partners. Our partnership team will work with you to identify the best way for you and your organisation to get involved – to find a way which brings maximum benefit to everyone.
Our flexible approach ensures that your involvement with Spurgeons is tailored to meet your organisation's unique requirements. We would love to hear from you and discuss how we can work with you in new and innovative ways.
Partnerships with Spurgeons offer you many benefits, including:
Project Satisfaction - we will work alongside you, making sure you and your staff have a genuine appreciation for the various projects we support. We want you to feel a real sense of pride and satisfaction from knowing the difference your contributions are making to people's lives.
Staff Morale – you can share regular updates across your organisation to build team spirit and boost morale among your employees, as well as demonstrating your company's morals and ethics to your customers and clients. There may also be opportunities for your staff to visit a project.
Careful Donation Allocation - employees who choose to donate via Give As You Earn do not pay tax on their charitable donation, so they can feel good knowing that their donations will change lives. Your organisation might choose to support a specific Spurgeons project, or we can advise you on where your funds are needed most. We provide a dedicated Account Manager to each of our partners who will work with you to deliver a programme which will engage your staff and customers alike.
