Become a Corporate sponsor & help us support more children and families

Why become a corporate sponsor?

Team Building, community engagement, events, by partnering with The Link Foundation, our experienced team will work with you to create a successful partnership.

We want to get to know you to understand your community goals, discuss your fundraising events and provide Link Foundation branded items and digital media.

Existing partnerships with companies such as Biogen Idec, Shanly Homes, Reckitt Benckiser and MCS Rentals have been vital to us and their fundraising initiatives, including car wash events, quiz nights, sponsored walks, office furniture sales, and Christmas toy collections allow us to support so many children in our community each year.

Frequently asked questions

What is a charity partnership?

Partnering with the Link Foundation is a great way of linking with your community.

Donations, fundraising challenges and ‘fundraise at work days’ are a fantastic way of building team morale, strengthening your team and having a little fun whilst supporting families needing a helping hand.

The Link Foundation team are always delighted to visit you to talk to your team about the difference your organisation is making within the community and we LOVE to work together to come up with ideas on how your business can further get involved.

What makes the Link Foundation different?

The Link Foundation is a children’s charity that believes every childhood should be a safe and happy one.  We are run entirely by volunteers which ensures that over 95% of everything donated is used to change young lives, something we’re really proud of and often cited as the reason we are chosen as ‘Charity of the Year’ for businesses.

Which geographical region do you support?

The families we support live in East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire.

Who do you support?

The children the Link Foundation supports include those living with a disability, victims of domestic abuse and homelessness, children who have suffered parental illness, loss or desertion, and children whose parents are struggling on a low income.

Our strategic partners in schools, hospitals and social services are working with families ever day.  They are our eyes and ears and make us aware of children who need a helping hand.

What items do you provide?

Nearly 1 in 10 children do not have a bed of their own, thousands of children are going to school hungry.

Every year we support local families with beds, cots, white goods, food, clothes and other basic essentials no child should be without.
