Every Charity Partner Dorset Mind works alongside is important to us. This is why we encourage you to set a fundraising target, as this will help us manage your expectations – and ours too. This will help us build a trusting and supportive relationship throughout the course of our partnership.
We believe that companies who chose us as their “Charity of the Year” benefit during our time working together. This comes in the form of practical toolkits and educational collateral, learning from our expertise and, importantly, raising mental health awareness amongst their employees.
Who looks after your partnership?
The stewardship of the partnership will depend on your agreed Fundraising target. This might change during the course of our partnership and might involve our Income Generation and Marketing Manager, Partnerships Coordinator and the Fundraising and Events Coordinator. A mixture of these dedicated staff might assist you during our partnership.
Our Community Partnership Coordinator can guide you through our packages and help you to decide a target. We’ll do our best to help you achieve your targets and have fun along the way! Please note that these targets are a guide – put in place to help us organise our processes and staff.
