Get Involved as a Business

Bring the joy to work by doing some fun activities and raising money at the same time!

Beyond Ourselves started out of the heart of one business wanting to contribute to something bigger than themselves. We have continued to partner with this business and many others over the years who have raised funds for Beyond Ourselves. Some businesses really enjoy the unity of having a ‘charity of the year’ as part of their Core Values. Explore the many way that you can get involved as a business through our events, by fundraising or by donating.

Events

We have had Companies taking part in The Brighton Marathon, the Royal Parks Half Marathon and sponsored bike rides, golf days. It’s a great way to achieve personal goals and have your colleagues cheering you on by your side as you also help to raise funds.

Friday Cake Sales

Friday cake sales are always a great end to the week and can raise quite a lot of money over the year.  They can get quite competitive too!

We have had the privilege of supporting Beyond Ourselves since the charity’s inception.

Each year they have shown unprecedented growth and represent a charity where every pound contributed makes a difference to the children and community they support.

Their direct child sponsorship gives an increased meaning as our staff have a child’s face to associate with funds raised.

The level of communication between them and our business is excellent, bringing improved awareness and buy in from our staff.

It is great to be associated with a charity which is making such a positive difference to the lives of the people it is supporting.

‘We would like to share how delighted we are with our ongoing sponsorship of Beyond Ourselves. We continue to help support 15 children in their education and it feels like even our modest contribution makes a huge difference to opening up education and promoting health in a very challenging environment. It is a reminder just how lucky we are and the sponsorship gives some context to our daily work lives.’
