We appreciate that staff fundraising or commercial partnerships are not right for everyone and we'll always welcome donations towards our projects. You can be confident we'll spend your money wisely, and if you would like to support a specific project or area of our work, we can guide you in making this decision.

Supporting Combat Stress by donating products, services or professional advice is a valuable way your business can help our work. Gifts in kind are a great way to utilise your company's assets and professional skills, achieving your corporate responsibility goals and demonstrating your commitment to our cause. Gifts can help save valuable resources and enable us to fundraise even more effectively, meaning that more money can be spent on our vital treatments. For example, common gifts include office equipment, conference facilities and IT support.
Payroll Giving also known as Give As You Earn (GAYE) is an extremely flexible way for staff to support Combat Stress. Donations are acquired through individuals salaries, these are deducted before tax, making this initiative a tax-efficient way to donate. Staff can give as much or as little as they wish, allowing them to engage with our Charity on a regular basis. Offering payroll giving allows your staff to make a positive contribution outside the workplace.
