Ways to partner with us

There are many different ways that you can support our work in a way that helps the RCN Foundation and your company.

Payroll Giving

Payroll giving is an easy way for your employees to give to charity tax-free and direct from their pay. Giving your employees the opportunity to give through their pay shows your commitment to working with the wider community. It costs very little to implement and is simple to run - most companies say it takes just ten minutes a month to administer, even if you have thousands of employees.

If you don't yet have a payroll giving scheme, it is very easy to set one up. Just register for free with a Government approved Payroll Giving Agency. Take a look at this list for more information about the options.

For more information about these and other ways that your company can support our work, please get in touch and we would be happy to discuss.
