Does your company choose a charity to support throughout the year? Watford FC’s Community Trust would love to be that charity for your company!
The Trust delivers a host of vital projects and activities to make a positive difference to the lives of local people. Help us to continue delivering such programmes by supporting us for a year by taking part in our events and organising fundraising of your own within the workplace.
To find out more about the Trust please get in touch with us by calling 01923 496 225 or email Tamora at Tamora.Burford@watfordfc.com.
By partnering with us, you will be closely involved with a wide-reaching and respected local charity that reaches the heart of our diverse community.
We believe that charity partnerships should be mutually beneficial and bring lasting benefits for both organisations. We can work with you to help you achieve your company Corporate Social Responsibility objectives.
You can also download the Trust’s Partnership Brochure here to see some of the specific partner packages which we offer.
Our team has a history of organising successful fundraising events, from gala dinners to corporate sports days. We are keen to work with companies to identify suitable opportunities to get involved and often look for partners to help us deliver our events both practically and financially.More information about our annual programme of events can be found here.
Every year we hold fundraising events in support of our community work and these offer a fantastic opportunity for your employees to come together to take part a team and to raise money for a great cause. Enter a team to take part in the Step Up for Shape Up Challenge or in our annual Corporate Sports Day and we will support you all the way, offering encouragement and fundraising tips to help you get the most out of it.
A really easy way to raise funds to help us continue running our diverse range of community programmes is by encouraging your employees to donate just one hour’s salary to the Trust every month. A small, regular donation will go a long way! Payroll Giving is a way for your employees to make regular payments to our charity directly from their salary. People who receive their company/personal pension through PAYE (Pay As You Earn) can participate too.
Payments that your employees make through a Payroll Giving Scheme are deducted from their pay before tax is deducted. This means that employees are given tax relief on their donation immediately – and at their highest rate of tax.
It’s easy to set up a Payroll Giving Scheme for your business. There’s little in the way of cost and administration, and you’ll probably be able to adapt your existing payroll system to operate the scheme. For more information, please visit the HMRC website.
