We rely on donations to continue to provide our free services. There are many ways that your company can support us. Make us your Charity of the Year or host a fundraising event. Encourage your staff to volunteer with us or simply get in touch or visit our dedicated page to donate.
Charity of the YearBy choosing us as your charity of the year we can work together to build a bespoke calendar of engaging fundraising activities for your employees. We’d love you to nominate The Brigitte Trust as charity of the year to your charity champions, senior managers and HR team. If you’d like advice on how to do this, email our team and we can help.
Payroll GivingPayroll Giving is a great way for employees to make monthly donations to charity, straight from their salary, before tax is deducted. It’s easy for employers to set up and shows strong charitable support. Find out more about Payroll Giving.
Staff FundraisingFundraising together with your colleagues is another great way to support our cause. From sponsored treks, to organising an in-house bake-off, you choose the challenge and we’ll be there to support you with advice, fundraising ideas and promotional materials.

Many larger companies offer match funding opportunities if their employees are fundraising for a registered charity (our UK charity number is 288923), so it’s always worth asking.
