Afghanaid is an international charity that operates only in Afghanistan. We work alongside Afghans in the most remote and marginalised areas of Afghanistan, to help them meet their survival and development needs.
No matter how big or small, all Afghanaid fundraisers are extremely valued and help us to reach our goals. Here are some of the ways you can get involved.
Corporate Support for Afghanaid
Here are some of the ways that your business can partner with Afghanaid.
Make us your Charity of the Year
Making Afghanaid your charity of the year encourages employees to get involved with a wide range of tailor made activities, helping them to contribute towards a worthy cause and boosting their morale.
In partnership, Afghanaid can help you:
- Demonstrate your commitment to CSR.
- Help increase your exposure in the media through targetted PR support
- Increase staff morale and motivation
- Improve your customer loyalty
Amongst other areas, we organise events throughout the year and have places in many UK challenge events. We will work with you to create exciting and challenging events for your staff. Afghanaid has places in the London Marathon each year and we will consider group applications for these places if runners are supported by a corporate sponsor.
Raise Funds for Free
Recycle4Charity is a company that recycles ink cartridges and mobile phones and then donates Afghanaid a portion of their recycled value. They provide us with envelopes for you and your staff to put your old mobilephones and printer cartridges in.
It is now a legal obligation for some businesses to dispose of their electronic waste in a responsible manner. This scheme not only allows you to fulfill this obligation, it also raises valuable funds for Afghanaid's work at no cost to you.
Ring us on 0207 065 0825 to have us send you some envelopes. Alternatively visit Recycle4Charity.co.uk to order envelopes or a collection box. Don't forget to select Afghanaid as your chosen charity.
Gifts in Kind
We are a small office with a limited budget. If your business has any products which we could use for example in a raffle or an employee whose time could be donated, please consider us.
Fund our Work
Currently Afghanaid is trying to provide computers to all of our district offices. These computers and computer training help our staff to provide efficient and timely reporting. They also are a professional development tool in rural communities. Would your business consider sponsoring part or all of the cost of a new computer?
Many employers encourage their employees to start contributing to charity via payroll giving as this is a tax efficient method of supporting charities. We can come in and give a presentation on how this works and the benefits to your organisation.
Host a Collection Tin
If you run a small business, we have a way for you to assist with fundraising for Afghanistan. Whatever your turnover, if you have a regular influx of customers who may be willing to part with some small change to put towards a good causes then please consider hosting one of our collection tins.
