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.

Sponsorship

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.

Middlesbrough Nursery Celebrates A ‘Roaring’ Success On 10th Anniversary

Rosedene Easterside in Middlesbrough celebrated its tenth anniversary with a visit from two very special visitors – local ward councillor Craig Wright and Middlesbrough Football Club mascot, Roary the Lion.

Roary and Craig were given a special, socially distanced tour of the facility, which is located next to St. Thomas More School and enjoyed a slice of birthday cake.

Children currently attending the nursery also tested their skills trying to score goals against Roary.

Easterside was the fifth nursery in Rosedene’s portfolio to open, following the launch of sites in Marske, Redcar and Saltburn. It now has 11 childcare facilities across Tees Valley and North Yorkshire. Easterside was the first of three Rosedene nurseries in Middlesbrough.

The team at Easterside has built up strong community ties over the last decade with key figures in the community, including a partnership with health visitors, the local children’s centre, church groups and small businesses.

It also has had strong retention of staff since it opened, with its manager Gemma being part of the Rosedene family for more than 16 years, and many staff members having been recruited at student level and progressing into more senior roles.

Alice McCullagh, director at Rosedene, said: “It was fantastic to welcome Craig and Roary to the Rosedene Easterside birthday celebrations. It is vital to us, even during such unprecedented times, that the nursery is at the heart of the community. Even though we had planned to host a huge celebration for all families, the children were delighted by the visit from our two special guests.

“During the last decade, we’ve looked after some amazing local children, supported over 1,000 families and our team love to see our returning parents, with whthey’ve built incredible relationships with over the years.

“Having a reliable, established childcare provider is essential for parents, especially when life is so uncertain. Parents need to be confident that they can go to work, and their children will be cared for by someone they trust. We look forward to providing that service at Easterside for the next decade and beyond.”

Craig Wright, councillor for Ladgate Ward, said: “Happy birthday Rosedene Easterside! Throughout the pandemic, Rosedene has been a vital support to the community and its fantastic to work with a brilliant nursery which puts children first and has community at its heart.”
