Corporations can offer financial support in many different ways, contributing to the wider community in which they operate and as part of a Corporate Social Responsibility (‘CSR’) programme. Examples of corporate financial support include:
- Financial donations
- Value in kind (providing knowledge and expertise to assist Victim Support Scotland)
- Encouraging employees to volunteer for Victim Support Scotland and actively supporting this through an Employer Supported Volunteering (‘ESV’) scheme
- Implementing a payroll giving scheme: such schemes are quick and easy to set-up and administer, and are a great way to demonstrate commitment to the causes that employees care about. You can find more information about setting-up a payroll giving scheme here.
