Pause 4 Parkinson’s wouldn’t be as successful without our generous corporate sponsors. Year after year, they give of their time and resources to support this campaign and speed up a cure for Parkinson’s.
World Parkinson’s Day is on 11 April and all through the month of April, we’re asking YOU to Pause 4 Parkinson’s through corporate sponsorship in the form of donations and workplace events.
It takes many people to support and execute the progress we strive for. That’s why, throughout the year, Shake It Up is grateful for our incredible corporate sponsors whose efforts play an integral role in helping us advance research towards a cure.
This year, we’ll be focusing on the word IMPACT, and what it means for the Parkinson’s community. We’ll see the IMPACT research has had for the future of Parkinson’s and also the IMPACT further funding can make. IMPACT means:
So what can you do in the workplace to have an IMPACT towards the future of Parkinson’s?
Host a workplace fundraiser
Fundraising in the workplace is a great way to promote workplace altruism and wellbeing while spreading the word about your charitable passions. Many employees choose to fundraise in the workplace community – it’s as easy as planning and hosting a workplace morning tea, breakfast, sausage sizzle or even a workplace challenge like a half marathon.
Ask about matched donations
Some companies match their employee donations which is a great way of giving back and supporting the causes your team are passionate about. If you are fundraising in the workplace, speak to your employer about whether they could match your fundraising and donations to double the reach of funds raised. If you need help speaking to your employer about this, contact us for a template letter.
Become a corporate sponsor
Our corporate sponsors are essential to securing funds so forward-planning can begin on innovative research towards treatments that will slow, stop and prevent the progression of Parkinson’s, and ultimately a cure. We have a range of corporate packages with exciting benefits. Contact us for more information on firstname.lastname@example.org
Consider workplace giving
Workplace Giving is a simple and tax-effective way for employees to make regular donations and advance Parkinson’s Research. Your donation will be deducted from your pre–tax earnings, reducing your taxable income. You don’t need to collect receipts and your total donation amount will be included in your end of year payment summary. Speak to your employer about setting up workplace giving.
Get involved in Pause 4 Parkinson’s this April and make a difference.
