Inspiring and supporting young people seriously injured through sport

Without a team of such committed and dedicated companies behind us, we wouldn't be where we are today. A huge thank you goes to each and every one of them. There are many ways companies can help support the work we do.

We would love it if you chose us to be your charity of the year. You can really make a difference and help us inspire and support young people seriously injured through sport.

Why not get your staff involved and have fun at the same time, by organising fundraising activities, from a dress down day, to organising a rugby match. Just use your imagination and skills to raise some money (click here for a list of fundraising ideas).

Sponsorship is a fantastic way to support the Matt Hampson Foundation whilst achieving a route to market and generating brand awareness amongst your customers and our supporters. We would love you to help us out by sponsoring one of our events or activities and align your brand with our important cause.

Every year we have exciting annual events and fundraising initiatives which you can sponsor, putting your brand at the heart of the event, providing excellent opportunities to support the Foundation whilst helping towards achieving your corporate social responsibility and marketing objectives. There are a number of ways in which you could support us through sponsorship. You may want to be associated with a high profile event, or perhaps a community based event or activity would better suit your brand. Please email for further details.

An easy way to donate is to 'give as you earn'. Ask your employees to give a regular donation each month to help us, which is also a simple and tax efficient way to contribute. Payroll Giving is a way for your employees to make regular payments to The Matt Hampson Foundation directly from their pay. People who receive their company/personal pension through PAYE (Pay As You Earn) can participate too. Payments that your employees make through a Payroll Giving Scheme are deducted from their pay before tax is deducted. This means that employees are given tax relief on their donation immediately - and at their highest rate of tax. It's easy to set up a Payroll Giving Scheme for your business. There's little in the way of cost and administration, and you'll probably be able to adapt your existing payroll system to operate the scheme. To find out more visit the HM Revenue & Customs site

There are of course other ways you can help us out, other than fundraising. You can always support us by donating products, discounted services or professional skills, or even make a one off donation.

Every penny we receive goes towards achieving our goals of ensuring seriously injured young sportsmen and women across the UK are able to have access to support and to allow them to Get Busy Living!

Gifts in kind can help save valuable resources and enable us to fundraise even more effectively, meaning that even more money can be spent on our beneficiaries.

Match your employees' fundraising efforts and be sure to give them a real boost. By matching pound for pound what your employees give, whether it is part of Payroll Giving or raising money in other ways, it is a fantastic way of supporting us and your employees in their fundraising activities. Businesses have the flexibility to put a cap on how much is matched per employee, and better still the funds that your business donates
