Corporate Fundraising

Corporate fundraising is a vital source of income for Jigsaw. Here in Jigsaw, we believe that good mental health for Ireland’s young people is not a luxury, it’s something that is absolutely essential. Together with your support, we can ensure that young people have the resilience to face challenges to their mental health, ensuring a better future for us all.

There are several ways your Company can get involved and we will work with you to ensure the outcome is as mutually beneficial as possible.

Charity Partnerships
We believe in working in partnership with other organisations as this allows us to build better relationships and greater understanding of the work we do. A charity partnership with Jigsaw also allows your company to focus your CSR objectives on young people’s mental health for one or more years, leading to greater impact for both parties. There are several ways you can support us through this type of partnership from making an unrestricted donation, sponsoring an event or project or cause related marketing initiatives to name a few.

Employee Fundraising
Employee fundraising is a great way to bring your team together whilst raising much needed funds to help us continue our vital work. We are happy to guide and support your colleagues with their fundraising efforts. For inspiration please visit our A-Z of fundraising ideas or our Fundraising Events Section.

Match funding
Offering a match funding scheme is becoming more and more popular with companies. This means when a staff member raises a certain amount of money, your company can match it up to an agreed amount such as €500. Also, any amount your company donates over €250 is eligible for tax relief.

Payroll Giving
This involves your staff donating an agreed amount regularly through their salary. The donation is deducted through the payroll department and forwarded to us on a regular basis. This is a very simple way to make a donation at very little or no cost to the company.

This is just a small selection of some of the ways we could work together. We would also be more than happy to discuss and support any ideas you have on working together.

Why get involved?

75% of adult mental health difficulties emerge before the age of 24.
Supporting an early intervention and prevention service like Jigsaw is crucial in helping young people catch problems early on. With this support, a young person becomes more resilient and is better equipped to deal with the ups and downs of daily life.

Many of your colleagues, whether they are young people, parents or previously in their teens may have experienced this to some degree, and may want to support a cause that is close to their hearts. By supporting Jigsaw you will:
– Help support the mental health needs of young people, creating a better future for us all
– Boost employee morale
– Enhance your brands reputation
– Give something back to the community where your staff and customers live.

Our promise to you:
Your support really will make a difference and we will work with you every step of the way to ensure the outcomes are as mutually beneficial as possible. We encourage open communication and are always interested in discussing new ideas or ways of working together.
