The Donkey Sanctuary are looking for companies that share our values: compassion, collaboration and creativity.
We hope to encourage staff engagement by getting employees on board with the partnership and passionate about the cause: this can open a lot of doors.
We are searching for a creative project which helps both parties stand out. We believe that a more creative approach can really capture the public imagination and raise the profile of both parties.
Corporate sponsorship allows both parties to enhance the authority, credibility and authenticity of what they are both saying. Businesses and charities can achieve more by working together to address social and environmental issues than by working alone.
A strong, ongoing partnership also has the power to make a sustainable, long term impact.
Get your company involved with The Donkey Sanctuary
We are currently caring for over 1,800 donkeys in Ireland, in recent years we have rescued a record amount of donkeys and mules and we are now struggling to stay afloat. We would love if you could get involved in our fundraising efforts and help us to provide shelter and protection to thousands of animals that need us.
Why work with The Donkey Sanctuary
The Donkey Sanctuary is in operation in Ireland for over 30 years and is part of The Donkey Sanctuary Worldwide which is the largest equine charity in the world. The Donkey Sanctuary Worldwide operates in over thirty countries and is a centre of excellence for the care and welfare of donkeys and mules.
The running costs for the sanctuary In Ireland amounts to over €4 million per year. This money goes towards feeding such as hay and straw that the donkeys require daily. Donkeys that are rescued in poor conditions require feeding supplements, mineral licks, winter rugs, farrier care, a visit from the Equine Dental Technician, regular vet checks, vaccinations and any extra medical treatments that may be required.
How your company can help:
Companies can give strong commitment to give something back to society and contribute towards their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). This will benefit the company as well as the donkeys.
Your company involvement can improve the health and wellbeing of donkeys and boost morale among your workforce. We welcome groups to The Sanctuary where we provide an informative insight into the work carried out and we are happy to provide guided tours of the stunning grounds. We would also be happy to organise a session for your team to meet and greet the donkeys and participate in donkey walking and grooming.
Your staff can support us by organising a coffee morning, a non-uniform day, participating in a 5km/10km race or doing something totally different.
There is also a fantastic initiative known as ‘Payroll Giving’ which is a tax-effective scheme whereby the donation is taken from an employee's pay before tax is deducted. This is a very effective and efficient method of donating.
The benefits of Corporate Sponsorship:
We would be delighted if you could sponsor a donkey in need and we would provide great publicity on the sponsorship. As well as saving the life of a neglected donkey you could also gain great publicity and boost your Corporate Social Responsibility. We would be happy to attend your workplace and provide an informative presentation on the work that we do and you and your staff are more than welcome to visit us here in Liscarroll to see first-hand the work that is carried out.
