Framework works with corporate partners to uncover new opportunities in working together. With the support of an organisation like yours, we can improve our services and continue to provide the best support possible to our service users.
Here are some of the ways you can get involved:
Charity of the Year
Nominating Framework as your Charity of the Year is a unique opportunity to unite your staff behind an inspiring cause and demonstrate your company’s commitment to making a difference.
Here are some great reasons to nominate Framework as your Charity of the Year:
- Our work changes and saves lives and the money you raise will have an impact on the most vulnerable members of the community
- Through our services we have excellent community connections across Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Sheffield
- Our dedicated and experienced fundraising team will help you realise your fundraising goals and make a meaningful difference.
“It was back in 2010 when our staff chose Framework as ‘charity of the year’. Ten years on since being selected for an annual partnership we have had a range of opportunities to get involved with Framework and support the fight against homelessness.”
Sue Owen-Bailey, Nottingham Building Society
Payroll Giving, often referred to as Give As You Earn, is a tax-effective and inclusive way for an employer to support Framework. By setting up your own Payroll Giving scheme, your employees will have the option to donate any chosen amount to Framework before tax is deducted from their pay, giving them the tax benefit as well as the opportunity to support a charity.
We recommend setting up your scheme through the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) as their Give As You Earn scheme is the most used in the UK. There are no set-up costs and minimal administration fees, and there is even the option for employees to pool their donations into one pot for Framework specifically, from which a reduced administration fee is taken, thus maximising your donation to us.
Fundraising with your colleagues is a great way to work together for an important cause. Framework hosts a range of events throughout the year such as the Homeless to Home Challenge and The Big Sleep Out. However we also support businesses that organise their own events – from Zoom quizzes to sponsored challenges.
JustGiving is a quick and easy way to set up online donations for your company. Set a goal or challenge and circulate this among your organisation, family and friends. It’s simple to access and the funds are contributed directly to Framework.
Amazon Smile offers users the same shopping experience as Amazon.co.uk however Amazon Smile can contribute 0.5% of the value of eligible purchases to Framework. Just choose us as your nominated charity. It’s that easy. For frequent Amazon users the value of this additional perk can quickly add up!
It can be challenging for us to provide physical volunteering opportunities within our services – especially with Covid restrictions, however the fundraising team puts on several events throughout the year where we specifically recruit volunteers to provide support.
Providing specialist expertise to support the work of our central services is a key way for businesses to get involved in providing practical and sometimes strategic support.
“The Nottingham Deloitte office have been working with Framework since 2016. As an office, we aim to provide support in numerous ways for example Fundraising/volunteering/payroll giving. Also offering pro bono support on specific projects throughout our partnership.”
Sophie Thornton, Deloitte
