Corporate Support

Here at MFC Foundation we develop long lasting partnerships with companies across a wide range of industries, delivering clear business benefits for them and vital funds for our work in the community.

Our life-changing work wouldn’t be possible without the extraordinary generosity of our corporate partners who support us in a number of ways, including via programme sponsorship, donations, in-house fundraisers and adopting us as their charity of the year.

Ways to work together

We can tailor a mutually-beneficial partnership including any of the combinations below. There are plenty of ways to suit your organisation and objectives.

Charity of the Year

By choosing us as your charity of the year we can work together to build a bespoke calendar of engaging fundraising activities for your employees. Organise your own activities or take part in our fundraising campaigns like Middlesbrough 10K and Ali Brownlee 5K, there’s plenty on offer.

We’d love you to nominate MFC Foundation as charity of the year to your charity champions, senior managers and HR team.  If you’d like advice on how to do this, email our team and we can help.


We have several high-profile events and campaigns, like the Great North Run, so there’s plenty of opportunity to shape sponsorship packages for a specific part of our work.

Cause Related Marketing

If your brand has a product or service that makes for a good fit with our cause, then a commercial agreement to donate a proportion of its profits to us could be a mutually beneficial partnership.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is a great way for employees to make monthly donations to charity, straight from their salary, before tax is deducted. It’s easy for employers to set up and shows strong charitable support.

Strategic Partnerships

If your CSR strategy is aligned to what we do, there could be exciting opportunity to offer pro bono services, share skills or work together at a more strategic level. This could be about changing public behaviour or truly transforming the lives of people from all walks of life across Teesside. Speak to us if you think there is shared synergy in our core purposes that means we should look to team up.
