Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice

Corporate social responsibility

How to get involved

There are many ways your business can help support The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice, and contribute to your company's corporate social responsibility programme at the same time.

We believe a successful corporate charity partnership should be mutually beneficial, and should make an active contribution to your business objectives.  

With this in mind, our specialist team of corporate fundraisers will work closely with you to identify how best your company can work with Glasgow's Hospice through a mixture of: fundraising opportunities, by supporting our events, through volunteering, or assisting us with the products and services we deliver.

Getting your team involved in fundraising is a rewarding and enjoyable way to create a positive team spirit.

As well as encouraging team development in your departments and offices, it is a great way of generating goodwill with customers and your local community.

Our corporate fundraising team is here to support you with ideas, advice and practical support, whether you're planning a staff raffle or a formal ball for business associates.

Here are some of the ways you and your company and staff can get involved fundraising for us.

 

Give As You Earn

Give As You Earn (GAYE) is an easy way to donate to the hospice - it costs you less to give us more.

How does it work? 

Each time you are paid, a donation is deducted by your payroll department before tax is calculated so you will not have to pay the income tax normally due to the Inland Revenue.

In practice this means your donation is boosted by at least 25% so, if you choose to give £2 a month, the hospice will receive £2.50. You can chose how much to give from your salary each payday.

What are the benefits?

It's convenient - it takes minutes to arrange so is a great hassle free way of giving.

It's affordable - even the smallest contribution provides valuable regular income for us.

It's tax deductible - which makes your donation go even further.

It's flexible - your payroll deductions can be adjusted or stopped at any time.

It's great for the hospice - it provides us with regular income which soon adds up.

Does my employer offer this scheme?

Ask your employer's payroll department if they offer GAYE. If they don't, suggest they start one - it is easy and inexpensive to run.

Please let us know if you require help on starting a GAYE scheme.
