Saving lives, supporting families

Involve your workplace  

Many companies support charities by choosing a Charity of the Year – this can be a combination of staff fundraising (which can help team building) and company donations (good PR for your company).  If your company supports charities in this way please nominate Tamba as a potential beneficiary.  Your vote counts!

Have lots of fun holding fundraising events at work and inspire your colleagues to join in.  This could be as simple as having a dress down day on Fridays in return for a donation, holding a guess the baby competition, or raffling your Easter eggs.  Or it could be a team skydiving challenge.  The possibilities are endless…

Some companies agree to match money raised by their employees and if your company does this, it could double the amount you raise for Tamba, so it's worth checking out!

Perhaps your company includes sponsorship or cause-related marketing activities as part of its marketing function and you could suggest a partnership with Tamba? 

Make a regular, tax-efficient donation to Tamba via your salary if your company operates a payroll giving system. If they don't maybe you could persuade them to run one? 

Payroll giving (for example, Give As You Earn) is a tax-effective and easy way for you to give a regular donation to Tamba directly from your salary.  We get more, but it costs you less as your donation is made before tax.  For example, if you donate £10 it will cost you £8. If you are a higher rate tax payer it will cost £6.  Some employers even match staff payroll donations and pay the administration fees.

CAF Give As You Earn is very flexible, offering you four ways to give:

1. Direct donation, whereby your payments go straight to Tamba each payroll

2. Charity Account which enables you to hold your funds so you always have money set aside to donate

3. Staff Charity Fund enabling you and your colleagues to pool your donations as a group – a great way to raise money for Tamba!

4. Charitable Trust to enable you to set up your own charitable trust.

There are other payroll giving schemes available but CAF Give As You Earn is probably the largest.  All schemes have the benefit of giving us long term, regular income, helping us to plan our expenditure for the future. 

If your employers don’t run a payroll giving scheme maybe you could persuade them to run one? Take a look at Payroll Giving from an employers perspective here. If your employer already operates a payroll giving scheme, simply tell them you want to donate to Tamba and they will give you the relevant forms.  Some employers even match staff payroll donations and pay the administration fees.

If you would like to know more about how your company will benefit from supporting Tamba and the different ways they could support us, please take a look at our Corporate Support page.

If you are planning a staff fundraising activity or you plan to support us through payroll giving, please do tell us about it. Email ShelleySmith@tamba.org.uk.
