Love Musgrove Business Partnership Programme
We love working with local companies, and in the last year alone we raised £50,000 in partnership with the businesses of Somerset. By working with us, you can motivate staff behind a single cause and encourage team building. Fundraising is often part of social responsibility goals and we can help you meet them. Supporting a local charity can help you reach new audiences, drive sales and give you plenty of opportunities for positive PR. If any of the opportunities below are of interest to you, head to the bottom of this page and get in touch!
Also, we’ve just launched the Love Musgrove £50 Business Challenge, to find out more and sign up, head here.
Charity of the Year
Support Love Musgrove over a year of activity
Choosing to work with Love Musgrove over a long period of time really highlights to your customers that your care about thier local hospital. At the beginning of the year we will have a tailored conversation with your team about how to realise the full potential of fundraising and the brand impact we can have together.
Over the year, activity could include:
Events - office quiz, charity ball, family fun day
Retail or staff collections
Staff Challenges - check out our full challenge offer here.
At every stage we put the needs of your company first, meaning we can be sure you’ll get as much out of partnering with Love Musgrove. We know some companies already have well established Charity of the Year schemes, so if Love Musgrove needs to apply, please let us know.
Choose from a range of exciting events and projects to support.
We run a series of events in support of Musgrove Park Hospital each year and corporate sponsorship (both financial or otherwise) is vital to help these events run and raise as much money as possible.
Our current list of sponsorship opportunities include:
Love Musgrove £50 Business Challenge 2019
Love Musgrove Race Day at Taunton Racecourse
Love Musgrove Cycle Challenge 2020
If Sponsorship is something your company would like to know more about, please get in touch!
Cause Related Marketing (CRM)
Products supported by the Love Musgrove Brand
Research by 'Business in the Community' has shown that 86% of consumers are more likely to buy a product that is associated with a cause. They also found that 73% of consumers would switch brands because of it.
Some examples of potential CRMs:
Proceeds of a hot drink going towards Musgrove on the day of the NHS Big Tea (5th July)
For every 10 blankets bought, one will be donated to Musgrove's Maternity Department
If Cause Related Marketing (CRM) is something your company would be interested in exploring, we would have a tailored conversation to explore what products and causes could be linked together.
We make it as easy as possible for companies to make a gift
There are many ways your company can have an impact on Musgrove Park Hospital, and it doesn't just involve giving money. We also welcome the donation of shares, investments that will earn dividends for us, or securities, such as bonds.
And beyond financial donations, we also accept gifts in kind, that can both showcase your products and company and help us raise vital funds. We're always looking for prizes for raffles and auctions and always give public credit to those who have supported us.
We would love to hear if your company can help.
Help your employees give to causes they love
Payroll Giving allows your staff to make regular contributions to Love Musgrove. Not only is it a simple way to support the Charity, but a contribution through your payroll is also the most effective way to donate, because donations are deducted before you pay tax.
One of the simplest ways to enable your employees to support our cause is by signing up your company to Payroll Giving. This means that members of staff are able to choose to donate a small amount of their pay to charity, which is given before tax too.
If you're interested in signing up your company to Payroll Giving, please get in touch, and we can give you some advice about how to go about it.
working to support a cause close to your business aims.
Every year Musgrove Park Hospital treats over 450,000 patients for a huge variety of reasons, and it takes a huge amount of work to keep the place running. Because of the sheer size of the place, there are plenty of projects we support that may have a link with your company that would benefit from strategic support.
Some examples of where we have created a partnership based on business topic:
- Working with local garden centres to raise funds and support the Hospital's gardens
- Nurseries fundraising to support the Children's Department
- Bike Shop giving support to our Annual Cycle Event
If you would like to explore a corporate partnership, we can discuss if a strategic partnership can be created.
