Our corporate partners and sponsors make a real difference in helping us to achieve our goal of giving those in subSaharan Africa access to the digital world.
There are many ways that companies can support our work, so whatever your interest please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Here are a few examples of how you can partner with us:
We can reuse your old equipment in African classrooms and benefit both disadvantaged students and the environment.
Donate your time, skills or resources to us. We are always keen to partner with people who can help us with any of the aspects of running a charity needed to ensure we can achieve our goals. As well as the core activities of computer refurbishment and the sourcing and collation of educational resources, this also includes professional services, PR and marketing, fundraising, logistics and governance.
These are a great way to involve your staff – whether this is helping on shipping days or getting kit ready to go to Africa. Teams of volunteers can achieve far more than we ever imagined in just a day and can make a real difference.
Schemes that give customers the option to opt in to donate £1 to charity or to round an invoice up to the nearest pound, can be very successful, or you could make a donation for each new customer.
Payroll giving can be a tax efficient way of making donations – particularly for higher rate tax payers. Volunteering days are a great way for staff to contribute.
Donate a percentage of your profits if projects achieve their targets.
We’ve teamed up with online fundraising platform Work for Good – who make giving through your business simple and good for business. You can download more information here or visit Work for Good.
