Companies, Schools & Organisations

Partnering with St. Francis’ Children’s Society shows that your company, school, church, organisation or club is socially responsible. It also provides great team-building opportunities and can be great fun!

We are happy to visit you and talk about our work so that everyone involved in supporting us has a better idea about what we do. To arrange a visit, please get in touch.

Working with organisations has provided vital support to the families we work with. We have worked with a number of companies, schools, churches and clubs in a variety of ways.

Below are some ideas about how your company or group could get involved. If you plan to host an event to raise funds, our 'Legal Stuff' document will help you ensure you are running your event safely and responsibly.

Whether you’re looking for a ‘Charity of the Year’ partner, would like to take part in Let’s Eat or do something entirely different, then we’d love to hear from you.

Sponsorship opportunities

Sponsor an event or materials such as our running vests or t-shirts. In return we will happily include your logo on the materials or at the event. Previously, we have received sponsorship for fundraising concerts and conferences.

We are looking for sponsorship for:

  • Leaflets
  • Our annual conference
  • Fundraising events, like our annual fun day

In-kind donations

We gratefully receive in-kind donations too. We are so thankful to Tesco, Co-Op, Argos and the many other companies who have donated Easter Eggs, Christmas presents, toys, raffle items, banners and balloons. If your company or organisation has excess stock or could supply toys, Easter eggs or Christmas presents then we would love to hear from you

Schools and kids clubs:
Why not ask the children to bring in a soft toy from home and it could feature in a soft toy tombola.

Take part in a challenge

Take part in a 'sponsored something'; it could be a local run or a challenge of your own making (sponsored silence, cycling 100 miles as an organisation etc). Here's a sponsorship form to get you started.

Schools and kids clubs:
Organise a read-a-thon for World Book Day. Prizes could be awarded for the most books read and the most sponsorship received.

Hold a Fun Day

Donate your pay and have a games day – celebrate National Children’s Day in May. Spend the morning (or entire day!) playing board games and ask for a donation in return.

Schools and kids clubs:
Celebrate childhood! Have a day of board games and ask for a donation in return.

Let's Eat!

Pick a day during National Adoption Week in October and celebrate it by taking part in Let’s Eat. Lay on lunch for your colleagues, ask for a donation and combine it with a raffle.

Schools and kids clubs:
A BBQ in the afternoon of the last day before October half term would be the perfect celebration for National Adoption Week.
