We know, with the way the past year has been, that fundraising for a charity is probably the last thing on your mind. But it shouldn’t be. Supporting a charity through your business doesn’t just give you a warm fuzzy feeling, it provides tangible benefits to your employees, your accounts and your marketing strategy.


Unless you’re part a business that’s ploughed on throughout the pandemic (a big well done if you did), you’ve likely - like us, seen a huge drop in your income. So now is a really great time to start thinking of new ways to advertise to your audience. We’re a regional charity covering East Anglia which means we have a great reach throughout Essex, Suffolk & Norfolk.  Supporting Autism Anglia means you will be reaching our 10,000+ social media audience, a huge database of a wide range of businesses, let alone the chance to be featured in local press. 


The Autism Anglia marketing team knows their stuff (yes I am gloating). We know how to promote what you do and help you to reach new audiences. We’re exemplary at writing great content (you’ll find us at the top of google for many a key term), engaging social media posts and networking our socks off. Not to mention a combined 20 + years of experience in organising fabulous,  insta-worthy events.


Marketing aside, did you know that a donation to charity means you could potentially claim tax relief by deducting the value of your donations from your total business profits before you pay tax. That will make your accountant happy we’re sure.


And on to your staff, are they getting bored to the back teeth of teams calls? (I know I am) Desperate for some socially distanced social interaction? In need of an injection of Pfizer excitement? Fundraising for Autism Anglia can be a great team building exercise, from pulling together as a team, to project planning to taking on an almighty challenge - climbing Snowdon, racing through mud or even a team sky dive! The skies the limit - literally.


As a not for profit charity, all donations to Autism Anglia help us to provide services, information and advice to the autistic community.  Our Welfare Rights team (which supports individuals to access benefits and fights for the needs of autistic people) is entirely reliant on voluntary income, whilst new services such as our Diagnostic Centre, Training team and more recently our Employment Service have all been established through donations and fundraising.  We also need to purchase new equipment and make improvements across our residential and supported living houses, specialist school and day centres.  Your donation, no matter the size will help us to make a huge difference to the lives of autistic people and their families throughout East Anglia


So what are you waiting for? Drop me a line, let’s have a coffee and find out what we can do for your business.
