Is your business celebrating a big anniversary this year?

There are at least 100 businesses in Buckinghamshire celebrating a significant anniversary this year – are you one of them? Why not support Heart of Bucks to mark the occasion and make a difference locally?

By Heart of Bucks

Whether it is 10 years, 25, 50 or more, as your local community foundation, Heart of Bucks is positioned as the custodian of choice for organisations that want to ensure their charitable giving is effective and helping those most in need in our county.

Each organisation we support is assessed by our grants team and provides a detailed application on how their grant is going to be spent. Amongst the hundreds of charities and community groups we work with, many smaller organisations are doing vital (but largely unpublicised) work requiring funding.

In addition to funding non-profit organisations, our crisis funds help individuals in need of short-term help, such as those living in fuel poverty and struggling to keep warm this winter, or to restore stability to vulnerable families.

There are numerous ways your company can mark the special occasion, including:

  • Making a donation
  • Fundraising activities by your staff team (which you could also choose to match fund). This could incorporate team-building activities and fundraisers such as a ‘Win an extra day’s holiday’ competition or a sponsored ‘Swap with the CEO for the day’.
  • Donating a percentage of your sales of a particular item or service.
  • Using an anniversary event to raise funds in a fun way, such as stand-up bingo or bring your pet to work day

By supporting Heart of Bucks, you would be part of our Community Investor initiative which highlights the proactive CSR of local organisations via our website and social media channels.
