Partnership opportunities

Companies large and small can play a crucial role as corporate partners of HEART UK supporting our vital work.

Supporting HEART UK motivates staff, lifts team spirit, gives unique marketing opportunities and demonstrates good corporate social responsibility – and it’s FUN!

Whatever the size of your team and where you're based, there's a host of inventive ways you can help us and benefit your company at the same time.

Here are just a few ideas:

  • National Cholesterol Month Partners
    October is National Cholesterol Month and is dedicated to raising awareness of cholesterol and funds to enable us to carry out our life-saving work. We have exclusive packages available for businesses, combining workplace health and wellbeing with fundraising activities that will bring the whole team together.  To find out more, email us here
  • The Great Cholesterol Climb

    The Great Cholesterol Climb is our flagship fundraising initiative this year. We are challenging you and your work colleagues to take on our virtual challenge and climb a whooping 13,177 steps UP which is the equivalent of climbing ten of Britain’s tallest buildings! But don’t worry – if this target is a little too steep, you can take it on as a team or just choose which of the buildings you want to take on.  As well as raising money and awareness for HEART UK, you’ll be doing your own heart a huge favour.  Climbing steps is a great way to get fit and can help keep cholesterol levels at bay. To find out more email fundraising@heartuk.org.uk

  • Charity of the year

    Choosing HEART UK as your Charity of the year is a great way to support us, plus offers excellent employee engagement at the same time. We can tailor a package of activity to your company including exciting fundraising ideas, use of our logo, mutual PR and a dedicated Account Manager for support.

  • Strategic Corporate Partners

    We are seeking new strategic partners to fund and be involved in our key initiatives such as our children & young people’s project, the development of our helpline and our new Nutrition Academy. These are major corporate partners who work with us and have bespoke involvement, branding, employee involvement and recognition in one of our flagship projects.

  • Cause related marketing 
    If you have a product which has a synergy with HEART UK then contact us to find out how a cause related marketing opportunity might work for you. When price and quality are equal, cause relating marketing promotions are known to boost sales, brand loyalty and consumer trust.
  • Employee fundraising
    We’ve got our own challenge events plus welcome companies coming up with their own ideas.  Employee fundraising for HEART UK is a brilliant source of team building, employee morale boosting and of course raises vital funds for our life-saving work.
  • Match funds
    If you are fundraising at work or taking part in a sporting event or challenge for HEART UK, why not boost your sponsorship by asking your employer to match the funds you raise?  Don’t be afraid to ask – companies like their staff getting involved this way.
  • Volunteer
    We offer our funding partners opportunities for their employees to volunteer for HEART UK.  Our HQ is in Maidenhead but we have other ideas for companies based nationally, such as organising “Donate don’t dump” days at work or distributing vital information to health centres and GP surgeries.
  • Other ideas

    There are plenty of other great fundraising ideas for companies and staff to raise funds for HEART UK from dress down days to car washing and even sponsored tea making!  For further information about any of these ideas contact fundraising@heartuk.org.uk
