Get in touch today to become a corporate supporter.
As an employee, you can support us all year round by setting up a regular gift through payroll giving. It is an easy and tax-efficient way to support us. Employees can sign up to give money each month and donations are taken before tax, so an £8 donation is worth £10. You can set up your regular donation through your HR or payroll department.
If your company does not already have a payroll giving scheme, visit the HM Revenues and Customs website to find out how you can set one up. We can help to launch and promote it to employees.
To find out how you can make a payroll donation, visit Giving Online.

Corporate donations and matched giving
Your company's contribution to our work can directly benefit people and communities that matter to us both.
We can discuss with you the priority areas of our work that need further support, and how they can best fit your objectives and business purpose.
Corporate Matched giving
Matched Giving is when an organisation matches the amount of fundraising an employee raises for a charity. This is a great way to engage employees, and boost donations to St John Ambulance.
By accessing funds through matched giving you could double the value of your donation. Contact your employer to find out if they support match-giving, these schemes can vary from one organisation to another.
Your company may support charities through a corporate foundation.
Supporting us through your corporate foundation meets criteria in community, health, and skills learning. This can contribute to your own objectives and bring benefits to the areas we both want to impact.
Cause-related marketing and brand licensing
With our cause-related marketing and brand licensing, you’ll be linking your company to our trusted charity brand, helping to differentiate your product from your competitors.
In a Business in the Community Brand Benefits Survey, 77% of customers said they would switch brand to buy a product that supports a charitable cause.
As a charity with a wide appeal and a compelling mission, we’re just what socially-concerned consumers are looking for.
Sponsor ‘Your St John Ambulance’ and we will help you raise the profile of your business and give back to the communities where you operate.
We offer plenty of sponsorship options from project work in schools, community, with our volunteers and events like our 2019 Everyday Heroes award ceremony. These events and projects help us raise the awareness of first aid and put more life savers in your community.
Our Fundraising events can also be sponsored, for example you can support our London Marathon runners through the Running Show. There are many opportunities for you to help, for more information please contact us at CorporatePartnerships@sja.org.uk.

Volunteering and other ways to support us
Donations are not just about money. Businesses also support St John Ambulance by donating their time and professional expertise. This helps us save on costs and widens our access to different types of expertise. Also, it allows us to concentrate our funding on our charitable initiatives and to work on new and innovative projects to drive our organisation.
Some options are:
- services, such as legal and accounting advice
- prizes for raffles and competitions
- meeting and venue space
We have a range of volunteer roles suitable for employees who get volunteering days awarded by their employer.
