Partnering with YMCA Sutton Coldfield

At the YMCA Sutton Coldfield, we want to offer local businesses the opportunity to give something back to the community and to be more visible at the heart of that community. At the same time, you will be helping to make a real difference to the lives of more than 1,000 young people and their families in Sutton giving them the support and respite they desperately need.

We understand that a corporate partnership must be mutually beneficial so we work closely with all our partners to tailor sponsorship in a way that works for you and your company.

Just some of the ways you can get involved:

Could you be our next Corporate Engagement Ambassador? We’re currently looking for business people from medium to large sized organisations to join our corporate engagement steering group.

A Charity of the Year partnership offers a way for staff to participate in something fun while bringing about positive change within the community. We can work closely with you to develop a programme of fundraising and volunteering activities or events to engage your staff and deliver a successful, mutually beneficial partnership.

Many of the young people that we work with come from disadvantaged backgrounds with little or no aspirations and poor role models. We are always looking for people to come and inspire our youth groups with a short talk about their business or profession. If you can spare an hour of your time, please get in touch admin@ymcasc.org.uk.

As a self-funded charity, we rely heavily on financial support from the local community to be able to continue our work. Single or regular corporate donations are another invaluable way of demonstrating your support for YMCA Sutton Coldfield.

We are always looking for raffle prizes to help raise money at our fundraising events. Why not donate one of your products or perhaps a voucher for your services? This is also a great way to bring in new customers that might never have tried your products or services before.

Fundraising Events

You can show your support by attending one of our fundraising events or why not hold your own?

Get your team together and spend the night in a cardboard box to raise awareness and money to prevent youth homelessness. A fun, teambuilding activity and a great way to raise funds. This is also a great networking opportunity to meet other local business owners who might need your services.

Book a table at our annual charity summer ball, get glammed up and enjoy an evening of good food, entertainment and dancing all for a good cause.

If you and / or a group from your company have been inspired to take part in the world famous London Marathon, and would like to run for YMCA Sutton Coldfield, we will have places in the 2022 YMCA team, and will have information on how to join closer to the time.

Looking for a festive, feel-good evening at Christmas? Come and sing carols and watch performances from some of our young people then join us for mince pies and coffee and start off your season of giving!

An annual company fundraising event can help to engage staff while raising funds for our vital work; this could be an internal event such as a barbeque or quiz evening or simply a dress down day or bake sale.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is a simple, tax efficient way for you to donate regularly to charity directly from their salary. Whatever the size of your business, Payroll Giving is easy to set up and inexpensive to run. If you’re an employee, ask your employer about setting up payroll giving on your behalf.

Pro-bono support

Your organisation could support us by providing pro-bono services such as legal advice, marketing and design expertise or facilities for corporate hospitality events. 

Sponsorship Opportunities

Looking for great value sponsorship opportunities to local residents and businesses? Why not be the official sponsor for our charity ball and get your name in front of hundreds of members of the community as well as press and social media coverage. Or sponsor a table and get your brand in front of your target audience.

Volunteering Opportunities

Could you volunteer at one of our Youth Clubs? 

Looking for a team-building activity that also gives staff the chance to give something back to their community? Can you spare a few hours to come and volunteer and paint our offices? Or do some gardening? Other ideas needed here
