Youth Futures relies on the generous support of the corporate sector to deliver high-quality programs that can change the lives of disadvantaged young West Australians. By partnering with us you will be showing your staff, clients, and potential customers that you are a socially responsible company that believes all young people matter, regardless of the circumstances they find themselves in.
At Youth Futures we recognise that successful partnerships are mutually beneficial and require commitment, flexibility and clear communication. As such we are open to discussions that will ensure both parties are meeting their objectives.
There are a number of ways in which companies currently support our work with young people:
By making a tax-deductible donation to Youth Futures you are showing that your company is committed to supporting young West Australians who need a helping hand. If you would like to direct your donation to a specific program or area please get in touch.
Workplace giving is one of the most effective ways to donate to Youth Futures. Regular donations can be arranged through your company’s payroll system. This not only makes a difference to disadvantaged young people, but as the donation is taken from an employee’s pre-tax pay there is no need to collect tax deductible receipts. This method also helps reduce our administrative costs so more of each dollar reaches young people in need.
We run a number of events each year such as the Pipeline Challenge, a five day charity ride from Kalgoorlie to Perth to raise awareness and funds for youth homelessness. We have a number of cash and in-kind sponsorship opportunities available. If you would like to know more, please contact us for an sponsorship pack. The Pipeline Challenge is also an excellent team building exercise – there’s nothing quite like the camaraderie you will experience as your team crosses that finish line!
Cause Related Marketing (CRM) is a great way to publicly acknowledge your partnership with a local charity. As well as promoting your company’s commitment to improving the lives of disadvantaged young people, a CRM partnership can boosts sales and market share. Examples of CRM include:
- A percentage of profit from the sale of an item will go towards providing accommodation and support to young people experiencing homelessness.
- $x from every job booked will support disadvantaged young people to complete their education.
If you would like to discuss a potential CRM campaign please get in touch.
Fundraising activities are a great way for staff to socialise, team build and develop their skills. If you’re not sure where to start we can send you a fundraising kit which includes ideas, hints and tips. We’ve also included some fundraising ideas below to help you brainstorm.
- Casual dress day
- Quiz night
- Movie fundraiser
- Morning tea
- Golf day
- Footy tipping competition
- Parking space auction
- Fine system (e.g. when some is late, makes a spelling mistake or checks their phone in a meeting)
Your company is able to nominate a particular Youth Futures program for funds to be directed to, which provides staff and customers with a tangible result. Alternatively you can select Youth Futures WA as the nominated charity for funds raised at company functions.
Corporate volunteering is a great way to improve staff morale and loyalty by providing employees with the opportunity to make a difference. Youth Futures has a limited number of team volunteering opportunities each year so we encourage you to get in touch early if this is an area you are interested in. We would also love to hear from you if your team has a particular set of skills which you belief our clients or organisation would benefit from, for example marketing, personal training, photography etc.
