How can my company or corporate foundation and its employees get involved?

Corporate donations
Many companies, or their charitable foundations, choose to make a donation to support our work around the world. We provide regular updates and reports so you know exactly how your funds are helping to save and rebuild lives. We will also be able you give you press and media coverage, recognising your support across various platforms.

Employee Engagement
From bike rides to book sales, hikes to head shaves, staff fundraising is fun, simple and sociable. We have a wealth of experience creating high impact, local and global partnerships that support staff and build personal and professional skills. Our team will work with you to plan engaging employee programmes to suit any business. 

Payroll Giving is a simple, tax-efficient scheme which allows employees todonate to any UK registered charity of their choice directly from their salary, or occupational pension, before tax. Making a donation through Payroll Giving costs less because it is tax free so a monthly gift of £10 could cost as little as £6 (based on a higher-rate tax payer). While it costs the donor less, the IRC receives your gift with the tax included. Staff can register here or through your chosen work place giving provider.

Customer Engagement and Commercial Partnerships
As one of the world’s leading and most trusted humanitarian organisations, a cause related marketing campaign with the IRC can give commercial benefits to your organisation as well as raise vital funds to help rebuild the lives of those affected by conflict and disaster. We will work with you to create opportunities to engage customers in a campaign, create data capture opportunities, round-up mechanisms and communicate your business principles.

How can we help the IRC respond to breaking emergencies?

The Corporate Rescue Partners is an active global community of diverse businesses united in their desire to be part of the most effective responses to an array of disasters—from headline-grabbing natural catastrophes, to the less talked-about though no-less devastating emergencies. Partners receive access to emergency field reports, enhanced opportunities to engage employees, and easy ways to provide pre-positioned emergency support or respond to a crisis.
