With the Covid-19 pandemic causing a £10.1 billion funding gap for charities in the UK, we’re delighted to share Work for Good’s #SmallBusinessStar campaign.
Work for Good works with small businesses to encourage donations to the charity sector through sales percentages.
Throughout December, Work for Good will match any donation made by a small business up to £500.
As well as raising money for good causes, the #SmallBusinessStar match funding campaign has been created by Work for Good to shine a light on the UK’s socially responsible small business community, illustrating that purposeful enterprise is better business.
From April to September 2020, over 300 small businesses have pledged and donated over £450k to charity via Work for Good, proving that collectively small acts of giving can make a big impact.
Veronica Bamford-Deane, managing director of Work for Good said: “Small businesses, like charities, have been struck hard by Covid-19 and will be looking ahead to Christmas as an opportunity to engage their customers and clients and regain some of their lost sales whilst being able to make a positive difference.
“Donating to a charity through their business sales is a sustainable and simple way for businesses to make a tangible impact and the #SmallBusinessStar campaign is a way to say thank you to the small business community for their support.”
