Supporting BookTrust can help us to make sure that all children have access to books to get them started on their reading journey and provide additional support to the families who need us the most.
Ways you can get involved
We know that reading can transform lives and a partnership with BookTrust is a great way to demonstrate your support to our cause, whilst achieving your business goals and motivating employees.
The BookTrust Christmas appeal is now in its sixth year and raises money to send out the festive book parcels and help the children with books and reading support during the year.
We ask donors to give £10 to send one book parcel to one child.
If your organisation is interested in supporting the appeal, we can provide materials and incentives for you to promote it to your employees and/or customers and provide ideas to get involved.
This year we will be giving out 16,000 book parcels in the run-up to Christmas. Can you help us?
Our outstanding reading programmes, campaigns and events present some truly unique sponsorship opportunities. We can offer a wide range of benefits including:
- association with the UK's leading children’s reading charity;
- increased market presence and improved brand awareness;
- access to new target audiences.
Fundraising at work
Fundraising at work is a great way to engage employees and raise funds for BookTrust while making sure that nobody misses out on the life-changing benefits that reading can bring.
We can provide a simple guide and ideas to help you start your workplace fundraising efforts.
Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme allows your employees to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charity and help to support a good cause.
