Ways to help
Sponsor a project.
Sponsorship is a unique way of supporting wildlife and conservation and is a great way to associate your brand with one of the South of England’s leading charities. In return for sponsorship of key events or projects, we can offer a range of benefits tailored to suit your companies plans and strategies. These can include: accreditation on promotional materials and on our popular website, invitations to key events and behind the scenes activities, educational wildlife talks at your offices with some of the wildlife we have at the time. We want to work collaboratively and would be happy to consider your proposals.
This can range from a small regular donation that helps to finance the essential day-to-day work of Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue to sponsoring a specific project. We currently need additional holding areas and specialist cages that cost hundreds to thousands of pounds but provide a wide scope and long term promotional benefits for your company.
This is where your company matches or tops up the amount an employee raises or donates. Lots of companies now run dedicated matched giving schemes which employees can apply to. These can be capped at a set level if need be. By rewarding employees for their hard efforts, it boosts morale plus you don't have to pay corporation tax on the money you give. Some examples are marathons/running events, skydives and sponsored walks.
Payroll Giving is a simple way for your employees to donate to a nominated charity through their salary. Giving regularly through your pay means that's Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue can plan ahead more effectively and ensure we are there to help wildlife in need.
