Corporate Fundraising

Business leaders recognise the importance of their social responsiblity to support their communities and the association of working with a charity has proven to increase and enhance customer loyalty. A partnership with Mid and North East Essex Mind demonstrates that your organisation is committed to supporting the wellbeing of the local community and can only be a bonus for your brand and your reputation.

The demand for mental health services is growing and we need to provide more services in our area in order to support more local people. Some of your employees will have experienced or will experience a mental health problem and in supporting us, you are in turn supporting your workforce, their families and their friends.

Donate

Making a financial donation would be gratefully received and gives Mid and North East Essex Mind an opportunity to design and implement services away from our contractual work to meet the changing needs of our local community and the growing demand for mental health services.

The yearly cost of our services is around £1 million; we receive some fundraising from local authorities and grants, but with budgets being cut, we rely on community and corporate fundraising to keep our services going.
