Become a Corporate Partner
Is your company interested in developing a corporate partnership with Cats Protection? If so please get in touch with us today. We wouldn't be able to carry out our work without the generous support we receive from our corporate partners.
Each year, we rehome and reunite around 47,000 cats. This, alongside our neutering and education programmes, ensures that more than 200,000 cats are given the chance of a better life every year. Through the support of our corporate partners we are able to help even more cats in need across the UK.
Whether you’re a multi-national corporation looking for a major charity partnership, or a local company interested in raising funds for us, our experienced Corporate Partnerships team will work with you to create a mutually-beneficial partnership package.
Why partner with us?
The difference your company can make
Our existing partners support us in a variety of ways such as raising vital funds through cause related marketing campaigns, corporate sponsorship and helping us spread our key cat welfare and veterinary messages.
It costs us on average £180 to care for a cat until they find a home. Therefore, funds and support through corporate partnerships is vital for us to continue our work.
Ways to partner with us
Access to your audience
You could help us to reach a bigger audience by providing access to your customer database, publications, website, social media channels and internal communications, to promote our key messages and campaigns.
For instance, this could be a communication about our work, early neutering, Cat Sponsorship programme, Cat Guardian scheme, veterinary advice or campaigns such as National Black Cat Day and Manifesto for Cats.
Payroll Giving is an easy way for your employees to make a monthly donation through their pay. Through your payroll department, employees can make a regular donation with the amount they specify being deducted from their pay before tax is taken, so every £1 they give to Cats Protection will only cost them 80p. This is an extremely beneficial source of revenue for Cats Protection, as it provides us with regular income. It also brings benefits to your company as it can raise your Corporate Community Investment profile, boost employee morale and engender a sense of team-building, which can aid staff retention.
In order for employees to be able to donate this way, you will need to have a payroll giving scheme in place. More information about Payroll Giving can be found here. Alternatively contact email@example.com for more information.
Cause-related marketing campaign (CRM) or product licensing
A cause-related marketing campaign is a great way to support the charity and offers mutual benefits. A CRM partnership would convey to your customers and employees your corporate responsibility, could increase sales, improve customer loyalty and foster positive brand association, whilst at the same time raising essential funds for Cats Protection. This could also take the form of product licensing.
Corporate Sponsorship opportunities
Throughout the year, Cats Protection holds various events that may be available for corporate sponsorship. These could include the National Cat Awards, International Challenge Events and our advocacy campaigns. Another opportunity could be providing funding towards our capital build programme with many new adoption centres and homing centres planned across the UK over the next few years.
Alternatively, you could help with the day to day costs of running a centre such as funding food for a year.
