Three great ideas for corporate charitable giving in 2014

1. The CAF Staff Charity Fund, working together through payroll giving

In recent years the number of emergency appeals prompted by environmental disasters has increased the demand for responsive charitable donations.

The CAF Staff Charity Fund is a simple way for your organisation to encourage employees to work together by combining their CAF Give As You Earn donations.

The money in the Staff Charity Fund can then be used in response to any emergency appeal or to support a charitable organisation of your employees’ choice at any time.

A CAF Staff Charity Fund has no set-up cost. The 1% fee can be taken straight from the fund, or your organisation can show its support for your employees’ commitment to charity by paying these fees.

2. Social investment, a different way to support the charitable sector

Our Parliamentary inquiry on Growing Giving highlighted that many organisations are keen to use their experience and resources to generate a real social impact that aligns to their business. Social investment is one way to achieve this because it allows a business to create a positive impact on relevant social issues, in a financially sustainable way.

Social investment funds like CAF Venturesome enable you to lend your organisation’s charitable funds to social enterprises and charities to help them grow and develop.

Is social investment right for your organisation?

3. Creating your own corporate foundation

Using a CAF Company Account to establish a corporate foundation is a simple way to unite your company’s charitable activities. It doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated and we can provide support at every step of your journey.
