Other Ways To Support Us

Staff in their welliesGWT

Here are some further ideas on how you can support us and care for your community

 

Choose us as your charity of the year

£250 could allow us to manage our flower-rich meadows

Your company's commitment to help wildlife can be as big or as small as your want it to be, from a collection box at your reception, to staff members attending one of our fundraising events.

You can also encourage staff to organise a dress-down day or a sponsored walk with your customers.  These are excellent ways of raising money for us.


Gift membership and adopt a species

Due to the success of our Gift Membership and Adopt a Species packages, we now offer a retail package where you can receive a commission for each product sold.

Promoting membership helps support our activities over the long term and adopting one of Gloucestershire's threatened species is also a great way to contribute to our work protecting wildlife.

Special events

£100 could enable us to create an orchard rich in life

An event in aid of Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust is a great way to involve staff, members, customers, clients or suppliers. We provide everything you need to plan your event and provide excellent PR opportunities. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Golf days
  • Sponsored walks
  • A Fun Run
     

Recycle ink cartridges

Recycle your ink cartridges and help raise money for us! Of some 60 million inkjet cartridges used each year in the UK, only about 10% are recycled. This means that nearly 55 million cartridges get thrown away each year and end up in landfill sites or are incinerated.

Inkjet cartridges will take about 1,000 years to decompose in landfill sites, so intead of throwing tem away recycle them and help the environment in more ways than one.

To recycle your company’s ink cartridges please request some of our special envelopes and help raise money for our environmental work.

 

Donations and gifts in kind

Corporate donations and gifts in kind play a key part in our work for wildlife. When making a charitable donation, companies can also offset corporate tax, normally paid to the Inland Revenue. Donations can include a multitude of things, all of which are a great benefit to us:

• Office furniture
• Personnel secondment
• Raffle prizes
• Services which could help us promote and advertise our services


Payroll giving

Payroll giving is a simple, tax-effective way for employees to give to a charity of their choice. Setting up a scheme is easy and the costs are minimal. Donations come straight from employees’ gross salary each payday. This means immediate tax relief while we receives regular and reliable donations to support our valuable work of saving wildlife and habitats.
