Corporate partnerships play an integral role in The Albion Foundation’s work. Through schooling, sport and education, The Albion Foundation works with children, young people and adults with learning or physical disabilities, consistently delivering our motto of “Inspire to Achieve”.

A corporate partnership with The Albion Foundation can be a rewarding experience for everyone, helping your company to achieve your business objectives and, crucially, helping us to achieve our goal to transform the lives of some of the hardest to reach young people, their families and the communities in the areas of Sandwell & Dudley, Birmingham, and Worcestershire.

SONY DSCCompany Donations:

Company donations enable The Albion Foundation to continue delivering our life changing programmes to the communities of Birmingham, Sadwell, Dudley and Worcestershire.

A donation is a straightforward means of support that allows The Albion Foundation to react quickly to the needs of the people we work with, the schools we partner with and the grass root organisations that we support. However, we do recognise that there are often areas of our work which link naturally with your business, and would be delighted to work with you to identify a project for support which best matches your business objectives.

Whether your company prefers to make a one-off or regular donation, we will ensure you are kept fully informed on how your support has helped make a valuable difference to the lives of the people impacted as a result of our programmes.

Gifts in Kind:

We are always grateful to receive gifts in kind that we are able to use as auction or raffle prizes, or pop into goodie bags at events. Furthermore, as a charity working with over 24,000 beneficiaries a year, the support of companies to support our strategic focus through gifts in kind can make a real difference.

Payroll Giving:

Payroll giving is one of the most tax-effective ways for your staff to donate to charity. Donating to the charity directly from your salary gives you and the charity you choose to support some unique payday benefits. Your donation is taken from your pre-tax salary, meaning that your donation comes from money that would have otherwise gone to HMRC.

For example making a £20 donation to charity:
