Businesses - partnerships with purpose

The K+C Foundation partners with businesses to give back to the community

How we can work together to give back to the community

“Through their established infrastructure they have unparalleled knowledge about issues affecting local people and grassroots charities working to address them. Whether you are a local individual, family, business or school, working with the K&C Foundation enables us all to make a bigger difference together.”  Hugh Seaborn, CEO, Cadogan

Advice and Expertise – we have both the data and the connections to frontline charities to provide a clear overview of the needs in our borough and the partners and projects best placed to address them We can direct your support towards initiatives likely to have the greatest impact and make lasting change

Fundraising support – we rely on the generous donations of individuals and businesses to support our work.  We can help you come up with fundraising ideas to engage your staff and customers, provide materials and a speaker for your events and report back on projects you’ve helped to support.   We also run borough-wide community fundraising events throughout the year which we encourage residents and businesses to take part in.  Join our Tour De K+C bike ride or our Sponsored Walk from north to south and take in the best of K+C while learning more about the issues we work on

Volunteering opportunities – every month we can share a selection of the best local volunteering opportunities for staff who want to get more hands on in the community

Employment initiatives – some of our projects focus on helping local people to develop their skills and find meaningful employment.  We would love to discuss how you can support local residents into jobs in your industry

Communications – we can make sure the community knows that you are giving back, through profiling your sponsorship of one of our events, or featuring your support in our newsletter which reaches our local supporters

Become a patron - Support our work by joining the KCF corporate patron scheme and connect with other locally engaged businesses and residents in the community.  For the annual fee of £1500 you will have the opportunity to join two networking events and use our logo to demonstrate your CSR commitment

“Our partnership with KCF is working really well.  There are new initiatives (to support) all the time.  The one we are currently most proud of is our support of an employment programme, where we provide funding and mentor disillusioned youngsters and encourage them to get into the workplace.  This has been immensely rewarding for us and our employees.  I’ve never had employee engagement like I’ve had through our support of this project.”  David Mercer, CEO, LMAX Group
