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.
BookTrust Christmas Appeal
Your company can partner with BookTrust by supporting our Christmas Appeal to bring some joy and happiness to children this winter.
For so many of us, the magic of books begins as a child. It’s a cuddle and a story before bedtime. It’s reading about monsters and mayhem whilst being safely tucked up in bed. It’s that new book smell which promises adventure and far away lands. It’s unlocking an imagination that can last a lifetime.
Yet for too many children, books are a luxury their family can’t afford. They may never have had a book to call their own.
But you could change this, with a gift of £5,000 your company could fund 500 festive book parcels which will be delivered to children in care who may be spending their first Christmas in an unfamiliar home. Or distributed to food banks across the country to make sure that, as well as food on the table, children have presents under the tree.
If your organisation is interested in supporting BookTrust please contact us to find out more about how your company can help more children discover the magic of books this Christmas.
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.
