Corporate Fundraising

Corporate Charity Fundraising refers to the efforts and initiatives undertaken by businesses to raise funds for charitable causes and organisations. It involves engaging employees, customers, and other stakeholders in activities such as donation drives, charity events, and volunteer programs. The importance of Corporate Charity Fundraising lies in its ability to make a positive impact on society, supporting nonprofit organisations and addressing social, environmental, and humanitarian challenges.

Corporate donation matching is a program in which companies match the charitable contributions made by their employees. The aim of corporate donation matching is to encourage employees to give to charitable organisations and causes by amplifying the impact of their donations.

By offering to match employee donations, companies not only help to promote charitable giving, but also demonstrate their commitment to social responsibility and community involvement.

What Is Employee Giving? 

Employee Giving, also known as workplace giving, is a practice which sees employers encourage and support their employees to give back to good causes and non profits through a range of dedicated workplace campaigns or incentivised schemes.

What is a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)?

A Donor-Advised Fund, or DAF, is a philanthropic giving vehicle hosted by a registered charity (KindLink Foundation). It allows individuals or organisations (DAF account holder) to establish a foundation account and instruct donations without having to register a charity themselves. This scheme can save cost and time while it is much more flexible and easy to manage than a regular registered nonprofit organisation.

Corporate and employee fundraising if one of the main ways businesses engage with local causes and their teams. It is the easiest way to gather your teams, do something fun and use the power of your friends, family, and colleagues to do something good. From running marathons to rowing and cycling challenges, it is an amazingly efficient way to collect donations and build the team spirit. 


In the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake in 2015, a group of friends from the technology and non-profit sectors started thinking about how to make sure donors could help rebuild the country through donations and be sure their contribution went to the people in need. We reflected upon and refined our ideas until we created KindLink – a platform that shows donors the impact of their donations through detailed campaign reports and social-media-like coverage and allows charities to showcase their good work more transparently.

The current project has aimed to uncover the underlying constructs of employee engagement and specify the ways in which it links with CSR. Based on the connections identified, the research seeks to provide real evidence on how employee participation in CSR affects the overall engagement, attraction and retention of talent in the organisations in the UK. [...] The research has confirmed that CSR programmes have positive effects on the overall employee engagement.

Most companies nowadays have heard about Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes. Started by and usually connected to the bigger companies of this world (as the name would suggest) such initiatives are sometimes seen as not related to the core business and hard to manage. Both could not be further from the truth.
