Corporate giving

Corporate giving

There are many ways you can help, no matter how big or small your company.
At any one time we fund more than 10 development projects. We can provide our donors with regular updates on projects, which can be shared with employees, customers and suppliers.

Fundraising and donations

Some companies make one-off or regular donations. Corporate gifts are always gratefully received by us and are deductible from a company’s corporation tax.

A fundraising event is a good way to motivate staff and build team spirit, while making a real difference to the lives of some of the poorest people in the world.

We can offer a range of planned fundraising activities throughout the year.

Gift Aid also enables CEDE Foundation to reclaim tax on donations made by individual UK taxpayers. Some companies offer a further incentive to their staff and customers by agreeing to match any amounts raised.

By encouraging customers or suppliers to donate to CEDE Foundation, perhaps for a general appeal or a specific project, businesses can build customer loyalty and demonstrate that they are socially responsible companies.

Payroll giving

Companies can also arrange for their employees to make a direct, tax-free donation to CEDE Foundation through payroll giving. Their gift comes straight from the payroll, so it’s as straight forward as paying National Insurance and is easy to set up.

Gifts in kind

Some organisations are able to donate goods or services that may be of value to CEDE Foundation in the UK or to any of our international centres, overseas. These may include raffle prizes, vouchers, advertising space or professional services.

Affinity partnerships and cause-related marketing

If a company has an ethical outlook or products and services that are likely to appeal to our supporters, then an affinity partnership with CEDE Foundation can improve brand perceptions, generate new business and increase customer loyalty.

An affinity partnership usually takes the form of a commission for each sale to one of our supporters. Cause-related marketing allows companies to feature a donation to CEDE Foundation in their marketing to existing and prospective customers.


Recycling employees’ and customers’ old mobile phones and ink cartridges is an environmentally friendly way to raise money for CEDE Foundation’s work. We receive a donation for every mobile phone and each recyclable ink cartridge that our supporters return through the scheme. Free collections can also be arranged for bulk recycling.

Event sponsorship

Sponsoring one of our high-profile fundraising events is a good way to associate a brand with CEDE Foundation and our work around the world. It also provides a unique opportunity to communicate with our core supporters.

The additional income for CEDE Foundation allows us to raise awareness of our fundraising event and to reallocate funding to our projects. Sponsorship opportunities include CEDE Foundation Week, Voice of Voices and the CEDE Foundation Christmas song festival.

CEDE Foundation constantly explores new ways of working with both individuals and institutional sponsors and donors.
