Pennies for Purpose
As a Bristol business, you know how important it is to be involved in the community. Pennies for purpose gives your business the opportunity to encourage your busy employees to also support their local community with very little effort.
The scheme enables local businesses and their employees to donate the odd pennies from their payslip to support our three vital programmes.
How it works for the employer?
Partners with a large payroll can offer their employees the opportunity to donate the pennies from their net pay from 1p to 99p each pay period.
As the employer you can then decide whether you want the business to match the employee’s donation or not.
Each pay period the donations will be deducted from the employee’s net pay and the amount taken will be stated on the payslip. Once the payroll is run the employer will receive an additional report stating how much to donate. This is paid on a set date each month.
How it works for the employee?
To opt into the ‘donate as you earn’ scheme all the employee must do is complete this form. You can opt out at any time.
Better Business Challenge
Each year we set ourselves a challenge
In 2020, we wanted to raise at least £20,000 to enable us to buy a people carrier. We needed a suitable vehicle that we could use for our Break Free and Bristol Together Championships programmes. We knew we needed help from the local business community to achieve our challenge, and so we launched The Better Bristol Challenge.
So, what is the Challenge?
A new vehicle is a big ask, so rather than ask one company to sponsor the people carrier, we asked for local 20 companies to collectively sponsor it.
How your business can get involved
We are always looking for help with our programmes. If you would like to support us with a donation towards the vehicle – and the costs associated with running it, or any of our programmes, we would love to hear from you.
