Corporate Partnerships

Supporting skylarks as a business

At Skylarks we believe the best partnerships are formed when we work closely with corporate supporters over a number of years and both organisations gain greater understanding and deeper links between individuals from the partnership. We fundamentally believe a partnership is a two-way process and a long-term commitment.

As such, we try to work closely with our partner organisations to help them understand the breadth and depth of what Skylarks does, and how we work. Just as important as sharing what we do, is finding out about the company and understanding what they do, what they are trying to achieve and their challenges, so that we can make a positive impact along that journey.  

What makes a successful business relationship?

Our most successful and loyal corporate partners have embraced working with us and have engaged with us on a number of levels, including:
  • sponsoring activities and events 
  • entering teams to our fundraising events 
  • providing materials and/or services free of charge 
  • providing pro bono support and training from employees 
  • adopting payroll giving for employees 
  • recruiting volunteers to help at our events 
  • providing access to facilities for meetings. 

See our corporate pages for some inspiration.
