Support us Fundraise for us Partner with us We are so grateful to all our corporate supporters who help make our mission possible raising valuable funds and awareness. Your organisation can easily join Team Dystonia UK and make a real difference to people living with dystonia throughout the country. Read on to find out the ways your organisation can get involved. Charity of the Year You can partner with Dystonia UK by nominating us to be your ‘Charity of the Year’. It’s a great way to engage with our work as it can: Motivate and engage your employees Increase awareness of your brand Show commitment to the community and society Support a team member that has a close connection to dystonia Sponsorship You might wish to offer sponsorship for a particular event or project. We have many activities such as conferences and 'Living with Dystonia Days', ‘Dystonia Matters’ our member’s magazine, fundraising events and a whole lot more throughout the year that are valuable opportunities for your organisation to support our work while increasing the awareness of your brand. Match Giving You may be interested in match giving a fundraising total made by an employee within your company for Dystonia UK. You can give the donations they have received an amazing boost by matching every pound they raise. If you would like to match give a fundraising appeal, we suggest you talk to the employee(s) raising money so they can publicise your generosity. Payroll Giving If you pay your employees using PAYE you can easily offer them the opportunity to take donations directly from their payslip. The donation amount the employee selects is taken from their pay before tax is deducted and is one of the simplest and tax-efficient ways of giving to us. To set the scheme up for your organisation you need to contact a Payroll Giving agency. The agencies usually charge a small administration fee which would be deducted from the total amount of donations we receive, or you can choose to cover the fee so that we receive more of the donations. If you would like to discuss any of the above options, please contact Dayna Ferdinandi, Director of Fundraising & Communications on 020 7793 3659 or via email at [email protected] who will be delighted to work with you.
