Corporate fundraising ideas

Support from generous businesses helps Teenage Cancer Trust continue vital work caring for young people in need. In this guide to corporate fundraising, you’ll find everything from ideas for company charity days to corporate partnerships.

Why should our business support Teenage Cancer Trust?

No young person should face cancer alone - and that’s why we exist. When organisations fundraise for Teenage Cancer Trust, they help us provide world-class services offering specialised nursing care and support for the young people that need us. We’re the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need. So, by supporting us, you’ll be making a huge difference to teenagers and families facing cancer.

Corporate charity event ideas and activities

From coffee mornings and full-blown gala events, to fancy dress days and sponsored silences, there are so many fun ways to support Teenage Cancer Trust as a business. 

You’ll find plenty of inspiration in our fundraising ideas for work guide and top tips for successful charity events, or you can download some documents and assets for Dress Up and Dress Down Days, and Duvet Days. Corporate charity days have the potential to bring in vital funds for teenagers in need of our help as well as raise awareness of our important cause. 

Corporate challenges for charity

Corporate challenges are a popular and worthwhile way to support important causes like Teenage Cancer Trust. Not only can charity activities for companies raise much-needed cash for good causes, but they also bring employees together and promote team-building. And, on an individual level, they often provide the incentive to get fitter or learn a new skill.

Teenage Cancer Trust is involved in many organised charity challenges which your business can sign up for. Or, if your organisation is looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, then check out our extreme fundraising ideas.
