Corporate partnerships and support

Partnering with Book Aid International provides a great opportunity for companies to raise their profile, increase employee engagement and contribute to something which really can change lives for the better

Our work is generously supported by a range of corporate supporters who share our belief that books really can change lives. Book Aid International’s corporate supporters range from large multinational companies to smaller independent organisations. The support we receive from the corporate sector allows us to expand our programmes of work, to plan long-term interventions and to monitor and evaluate the work we do so we can ensure we have the biggest possible impact. We work with a wide range of corporate partners across sectors as varied as finance, mining and publishing.

Company support

Whether large or small, all corporate organisations can play a vital part in supporting our work by making a donation. These donations can be used to support our book provision programme, through which we send up to one million brand new, carefully selected books to African libraries each year. In 2015, this programme supported over 2,600 libraries and reached around 24 million people. We always aim to share our stories, both with company staff and with the general public, of how our corporate supporters help us to change lives for the better.

Corporate partnerships

The corporate partnerships we build are great for engaging staff in a Corporate Social Responsibility programme that makes a real difference. Partnership working involves building long-term or larger-scale support across a whole company. We want our corporate partners and their staff to feel involved and connected with the work they are supporting. There are a variety of ways in which companies can partner with Book Aid International including corporate donations, employee fundraising and cause-related marketing. We offer a tailor-made programme of engagement for corporate supporters who share our belief that reading and learning are key to opening up opportunities for people to improve their own lives. Every corporate partnership is an opportunity to find ways to build an individual relationship with our partner organisation’s staff at all levels, and can include:

  • volunteering opportunities in London
  • life-changing project visits to Africa
  • customer engagement and cause-related marketing campaigns
  • event sponsorship opportunities
  • engaging human stories for internal and external communications
  • support to organise team-building fundraisers
  • invitations to high profile events to inspire and engage senior leaders
  • a partnership with a recognised and well-respected UK registered charity that demonstrates how your company has a positive impact on society.
