What is a ‘Charity of the Year’?
Have you ever thought about taking a charity on as your company’s ‘Charity of the Year’? The idea provides a focus for your employees to raise money for a chosen charity. Many organisations take on a ‘Charity of the Year’ and reap the benefits such as enthusiasm and team bonding within the workplace, as well as being an ideal way to accomplish high standards of corporate social responsibility for your organisation.
‘Charity of the Year’ participation can occur in various forms, from fundraising events such as fun runs, cake stalls, raffles, to the more elaborate: skydiving, bungee jumping, and marathon running. Other forms of participations could include payroll giving, donations and employee volunteering.
Farming & Countryside Education (FACE) is the leading charity for all things farming and food education. We help children and young people to learn about food, farming and the countryside, through hands-on learning activities and visits.
Today, school pupils perceive a role within agriculture as one of the least desirable career paths – marry this with the fact that the average age of farm workers is 46 and you will understand how crucial it is to start promoting the positives of food and farming to young children. How will tomorrow’s generation combat worldwide issues such global warming, food obesity, and food production rates? Money raised by ‘Charity of the Year’ participation will help ensure that children and young people are connected, educated and provided with an understanding regarding such issues.
Choosing FACE as your ‘Charity of the Year’ means that together we can help provide a healthier future for the food and farming industries; it will also help separate your organisation from your competitors as you show your existing and future clients that you have the industry’s best interests at heart.
In return, your organisation will be profiled on all of FACE’s communication platforms including; the websites homepage, our quarterly e-newsletters, printed marketing documents, marketing emails, and our educational teaching resources.
