We are so grateful for the amazing support of our current corporate partners. Together we are changing children’s lives, now and for the future. Your support is vital in helping us close the literacy gap for disadvantaged children so not only do they catch up, they can then race ahead.

Help to transform the life of a child

We have a simple goal: to help more disadvantaged children to close their literacy gap. Now, more than ever, our specialist tuition is needed but without the support of organisations like you, we can only do so much.

Working together to help close the literacy gap

Our small but dynamic fundraising team here at The Children’s Literacy Charity is committed to delivering inspiring partnerships tailored to the needs of your company.

We rely on corporate donations and multi-year grants to help sustain our vital work. If you choose us as your charity partner, we will work with you to create a partnership that meets your CSR objectives, and engages your employees and wider stakeholders. You will successfully raise money to transform children’s lives and help us to deliver our life-changing literacy work.

Engaging your employees

We can support your employees with a range of fundraising ideas and work with you to create a calendar of events and activities that are suited to your business, whether you are fundraising in the work place or virtually.

If you love a physical challenge, we partner with Run for Charity which means we have access to places in running and challenge events across the country; from super hero and Santa fun runs to marathons. So, dust off your trainers, choose your super hero cape and become our fundraising superstars!

Corporate Volunteering

Step into a Story with us!

Because of the very specialist nature of our work, volunteering opportunities are limited but we are able to offer bespoke volunteering packages for our corporate partners. For instance, we have recently developed a ‘Step Into A Story’ opportunity where volunteers visit one of our partner schools to spend a day with children exploring books together. We can also deliver an alternative Step Into A Story workshop at your offices where employees create story sacks for our Literacy Labs; a great team building and creative development opportunity!

And pro bono support is always gratefully received where skills and resources we would not normally have access to are provided.

Our experienced fundraising team is available to have an initial chat about our work and explore ways in which we could partner together.

Support from Trusts & Foundations is essential for our work: we have many long standing relationships and we are hugely grateful for all their support. Their significant funding contribution allows us to reach hundreds of children who are struggling with literacy and this has never been more important.
