We are immensely grateful to our incredible corporate supporters across the UK. Business support is vital to Amigos and we couldn’t run all of our projects without it. Here are some examples of how companies are supporting us.

Gifts in Kind

A simple way of supporting Amigos is to donate services or items free of charge or at a reduced cost. Examples of businesses that have supported us in this way include Saltrock, Toptown Printers and Just Office. Saltrock have donated clothes that we can sell, Toptown Printers have printed our cards, leaflets and booklets, and Just Office provide us with our stationery and office furniture. 

If you have a product or service that you think we could benefit from, whether small or large, we would love to hear from you. We pride ourselves in creating lasting, mutually beneficial links with businesses, doing our best to spread the word about the essential organisations which support us. If you are interested in donating a product or service, please phone 01271 377664 or contact us here

Fundraising Events

From dress-down Fridays to fancy dress days, there are endless ways you can fundraise in a way that suits your organisation. Why not organise a team at work to take on a sporting challenge for Amigos? Events are great for motivation and team building. We can provide sponsorship forms and Amigos pull-up stands.

Donations

Many of our corporate supporters, such as Global English, Southgate Estates, Cope Seeds, Philip Milton, World First, Kings Carpets and Applegate support us through regular donations. This could be in many forms. Global English, for example, donate 10% of all their profits towards Amigos, while Brend Hotels ran a ‘Check-out for change’ scheme, where guests were encouraged to add £1 to their bill on checkout, in aid of Amigos. Alternatively, you could attribute the profits from a specific product or service to Amigos, like Catherine Bishop who donated profits from their small jewellery repairs. If you can help us in any way with regular donations, we would be incredibly grateful. To find out more please phone 01271 377664 or contact us here 

Matched Giving

Matched Giving is a joint donation by staff and the company they work for. Employees make a donation, which could be a percentage of their salary or it could be as a result of taking part in a sponsored event. Your company then matches the money raised by the employee, encouraging them in their fundraising efforts.

How we can help you:

In return for your company’s support, we will do all that we can to publicise your support. Your company would be included in the corporate supporters section of our website, we will run a story about you in our e-newsletter, and also on our social media. We will also pursue press coverage of your support in newspapers such as the North Devon Journal and the North Devon Gazette.

Finally, if you support us through donations, depending on the amount, you could sponsor a student at Kira Farm Development Centre. This would mean that we put together a thank you pack, a framed certificate and some press coverage, all about your business supporting one of our trainees. You will also receive monthly emails and photos from your sponsored student which many businesses find useful for their own internal publicity, both on social media and in their own newsletters.

Again, if you have any questions about any of these benefits for our corporate supporters, please do get in touch here or ring us on 01271 377664 or pop in and have a chat in our office at 3 Boutport Street (Mermaids Walk), Barnstaple, Devon, EX31 1RH
