Involve your employees

Older people in uniform

Fundraising or volunteering for a charity offers a unique and fun way for staff to enhance their skills and demonstrate readiness to take on new responsibilities.

Fundraising for Age UK

Age UK can work with you to provide tailored fundraising ideas to suit your staff. This could include joining one of our ongoing appeals such as Bobble Day or taking part in one of our fundraising events like a 10K run.

To find out more about previous and current fundraising activities visit our Charity of the Year page.

We have the experience and skills to manage large teams of fundraisers and we will provide the enthusiasm, ideas, support and recognition to make sure that whatever fundraising endeavour you choose it will be a success for all involved.

Payroll giving

Don’t have a lot of time? An easy and effective way to fundraise is through the Payroll Giving scheme where donations are taken before tax, giving immediate tax relief on the donation. For more information please contact the Corporate Partnerships team.

Employee volunteering

Through volunteering, your employees can gain and enhance numerous skills including: project management, teamwork, negotiation and communication skills.

A survey of over 200 top businesses revealed that 94% think that volunteering adds significantly to the skills of their workforces, particularly in the areas of communication, organisation and time management (Timebank volunteering survey, 2000).

Current programmes

Currently we are working with a number of companies on corporate volunteering initiatives including:

  • Call in time, a volunteer telephone befriending scheme.
  • Prudential's Chairman’s Challenge provides volunteering opportunities with older people across four continents.
