Corporate partnerships can be highly beneficial. As well as financial support, corporates can also offer their time and expertise to help upskill your team and promote your message to a wider audience.
Support can include one off donations, sponsorships, gifts in kind, cause related marketing, charity of the year and volunteering. Although highly beneficial, corporate partnerships can also be complex. They can involve considerable due diligence and in some cases commercial partnership agreements will need to be developed and put in place.
