Corporate Fundraising

Ways to work together for mutual benefit

As a local independent charity, BIADS relies on the fundraising efforts and contributions of those living and working in Barnsley to help us raise £120,000 of the £200,000 we need every year to keep the doors open of or dedicated Dementia Support Centre. The support and services we offer are vital in ensuring people with dementia and their carers live well. We currently help over 200 families affected by this disease and want to help even more. There are so many ways your organisation can show its support for BIADS. Including:


Make BIADS your ‘Charity of Choice’


Why not set yourselves a challenge and set a fundraising target? Beginning a longer-term strategic relationship with BIADS, rather than choosing a different charitable cause each year, offers mutual benefits. These include increased employee engagement resulting in more monies raise. We are currently working with a number of corporates including NPS Barnsley who have kindly chosen BIADS as their 2017 / 18 Charity of Choice

Challenges and Events

Ranging from running a marathon to organising a staff event, there are so many fantastic ways to encourage team building and develop employees’ skills whilst raising much needed monies. What is your team up for? We have BIADS’ t-shirts and running vests, can provide sponsorship forms and will help you promote the event

Employer Supported Volunteering

Whether this is regular, task specific or limited hours volunteering, there is something for everyone. Volunteering is so rewarding and could help your employees gain new skills and build confidence and self-esteem, whilst making a real difference to the lives of others. Everyone who takes part will get a certificate

Encourage Payroll Giving (also known as Give as You Earn)

This scheme enables employees to donate directly from their payroll. Donations are deducted before tax meaning we get more money. You can find more information about Payroll Giving or contact us 

Sponsorship of Events, Equipment and Publications

As much as actual monies are essential to ensure BIADS and our services remain in place, your organisation may prefer to offer sponsorship support. There are always opportunities available

Donation of Time via Support Services

As an independent charity, BIADS is always looking for a helping hand in specialist support areas such as IT, HR, project management, staff training, printing or health and safety. So why not encourage your employees to put their professional skills and knowledge to good use to benefit others?


You may wish to offer an employee the opportunity for a secondment to BIADS to work on a specific project. Secondments are increasingly recognised as valuable for both the employee and organisational development

Donation of Products 

From specialist equipment for use at BIADS’ Dementia Support Centre or a raffle prize, we welcome the donation of products

Match Funding  

Why not reward the hard efforts of your employees and the monies they raise by match funding?

Tax Incentives 

With the majority of fundraising efforts seen as ‘charity donations’, corporation tax relief can be claimed where applicable. Click here for the latest HMRC guidance on Charities and Tax

Approved Collections

Held within your outlets, are the ideal way to get your customers involved.


How could YOUR organisation help, whilst benefitting your employees too? We would love to discuss this with you, and the ways in which BIADS can encourage and help develop ideas unique to your organisation, for the maximum mutual benefit.
