Corporate Responsibility and Partnering with Hospices of Hope to make every day count..

In a recent letter from GlaxoSmithKline plc, enclosing a cheque for Eu65,000 for the new Bucharest Hospice, CEO, Andrew Witty said:

 “This donation comes from GSK’s senior leaders, who contributed their personal money to a variety of our charity partners as part of a teambuilding activity at a recent meeting. The company also made a contribution.

 Our senior leaders were very moved by the work you are doing to make a real and sustainable difference.

I hope this donation shows you how committed we are as individuals and as a company to supporting organisations like yours”.

GlaxoSmithKline plc. also supports Hospices of Hope through their PULSE Programme. More information can be found by clicking here.

Hospices of Hope is an international charity group, incorporating:

  • Hospices of Hope (UK)
  • Hospices of Hope (USA)
  • HOSPICE Case Sperantei (Romania)
  • BELhospice (Serbia)

The group needs to raise over £2m annually to maintain current services.

To develop care further, helping the 95% of the Romanian population who do not have access to specialist palliative care services, we need to raise more.  Our Capital Appeal, for instance, has been launched to build a new Hospice of Hope in Bucharest. We aim to raise £750,000 in the UK towards completing this 18-bed centre of excellence by mid-2014. You can give by clicking the Give Now button at any time.

Your staff can participate in any one of our Events, take up a sponsored challenge or raise funds in a variety of ways. This can build relationships within your company, and reward staff. If your company operates a matched-giving scheme, your staff can double what they raise whilst the company ensures it is supporting a cause close to the hearts of its employees.

Hospices of Hope works hard to minimise administrative costs. One way we do this is through Gifts in Kind. It involves the generosity of companies contributing goods and services – IT, office equipment, printing, legal or HR advice etc. – at no cost to us. Does your company have goods or services that can benefit Hospices of Hope?  We can then publicise you as a Hospices of Hope corporate partner. This gives you branding opportunities, logo exposure and the opportunity to use our logo to show your charitable support.

If your company offers a Payroll Giving Scheme, you can sign up for Payroll Giving (‘Give As You Earn’) and make regular donations to Hospices of Hope direct from your pre-tax salary. On each payday an amount of your choice is deducted by your payroll department and sent to Hospices of Hope. Because your giving is taken before tax, for every £1 you give the cost to you is just 80p! If your tax threshold is higher, then the cost to you is just 60p). The Revenue pays the difference.
