What is a Charity Partner?

As a Charity Partner, you get to be a central part of the Events Industry charity and share in our growth story. Charity Partners commit to making an annual donation to Meeting Needs and in return we can support your corporate CSR strategy. You and your teams will receive regular updates about the charities Meeting Needs supports thanks to your Charity Partnership. You can also recommend charities that are close to your heart or get additional support from Meeting Needs for your own fundraising projects.

-Recieve a Charity Partner welcome pack with a logo and social media posts

-Receive an invitation to our annual Thank You event for our industry supporters

-We can get a Meeting Needs Board Member to act as your Charity mentor

-We offer opportunities to feature in our newsletters and social media

-We re-share as much of your charity news and events via our social media channels as we can and link to you from our website

-We try to prioritise funding and match—funding applications for Charities supported by Charity Partners (provided those charities match our funding criteria)

-We offer opportunities to join industry fundraisers for Meeting Needs such as Royal Parks Half Marathon, Prudential Ride London 100 etc.

Below is a list of our current Charity Partners, if you’d like to join them apply today.
