Corporate fundraising

Our corporate partners provide a vital source of income, but more than that they have fun too. 

Our corporate partnerships make a real difference to the lives of local children and their families. We know that in return their involvement with us makes a positive impact on their business. Staff motivation, retention and team building as well as demonstrating a commitment to social responsibility are just some of these benefits.

Every business is different and we will work with you to build a mutually beneficial partnership that supports our work, whilst meeting your objectives. 

Please get in touch with us today to find out how your company can make a lifetime of difference to families in desperate need of our support. Call 01628 822777 or email fundraising@alexanderdevine.org

26 incredible volunteers 💪
460 🎄 trees collected
...and over £8,500 raised! 🙌

A MASSIVE thank you to everyone that generously supported our Christmas Tree Recycling service this year. In particular, our amazing team of volunteers who braved the wet and cold weather to collect trees from people's homes and take them to be recycled.

All the trees were taken to Berkshire College of Agriculture for recycling into chippings and are already being used with their zoo animals on site.

As well as being good for the environment, we also love that our recycling service enables us to support other local charities. As part of our service, which is run in partnership with JustHelping, we are able to nominate a local charity to receive 10% of our donations. We are delighted to choose 18th Maidenhead Scouts, who are always incredibly supportive of our charity.

What a wonderful way to kick-start 2022! 💙💛
