How can a Business help?

Be a regular Donor

Our Business Supporters donate £100 each month as part of their commitment to Forever Manchester. Not only does this give you access to the benefits above, but this provides consistent support for the communities of Greater Manchester.

One-off Donations

Donations make our work possible, and are a massive help to those working across our community. There are many options available, which can suit all pockets.

Named Funds

There is also the option to have a named fund. This directly links you to your community, and is a great step towards a CSR policy that sets you apart from others. If you wish to keep the fund going, you will need to make a new gift every year, but be rest assured the impact will last much longer. These funds will be followed by impact reports, so you will be able to understand not only who you have helped, but also how.

Attend Events

Many businesses choose to take part through our many events that take place throughout the year. From Comedy Nights to 170m Abseils, we have lots of options. Get your employees involved for team-building or just for a bit of fun, all the while supporting your communities.

If you have an idea for an event that isnt on our calendar, you can create your own event in our name. Contact us to find out more.

Sponsor Events

If you love the sound of an event, you can sponsor it! With your brand featuring on promotional material, you will be front and centre, amplifying your company’s dedication to CSR and raising money for charity.

These can be big or small, with opportunities ranging from sponsoring part of our annual Birthday Party, to sponsoring t-shirts at the Great Manchester Run.

How can you take part?

Every year, Forever Manchester hosts a wide range of fundraising activities for your business to get involved with, which include:

What else can you do?

Fundraising is not just limited to our events. We also encourage businesses to host their own fundraisers, where we will provide help, guidance, and support along the way.

We also have the online ForeverManchesterShop.com – the ultimate shopping destination for Mancunian gifts, offering a great selection of products that celebrate some of Greater Manchester’s finest people, places and cultural references all whilst raising money for Forever Manchester.
