Employee Fundraising


Employee fundraising gives teams a shared goal and unique experience, and therefore has a positive effect on engagement. High employee engagement is clearly identified as having a direct impact on profits and operating margins.

Whatever fundraising challenges your team would like to get involved with, we will ensure that they are supported before, during and after the events. And of course, any funds that they raise for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home will go straight into caring for the dogs and cats in desperate need of our help.

Have a look at our suggestions for fundraising ideas throughout the year. They can be adapted and developed, depending on your company’s objectives.

You don’t have to choose one of our ideas though – you might have different ideas for fundraising activities. Whatever you and your team would like to do, please contact us on:



Battersea Dogs & Cats Home holds various events, for which we offer corporate sponsorship. These events include

  • Our Annual Reunion, held in Battersea Park in the summer
  • Our Old Windsor Open Day, held at our Old Windsor site in the summer
  • Our Collars & Coats Gala Ball, our most prestigious fundraising event of the year.
  • Various other events that run throughout the year

These sponsorship packages can be tailored to meet specific objectives of your company. They give you the opportunity to highlight your corporate social responsibility credentials, meet some of Battersea’s most generous supporters, whilst helping the thousands of lost and abandoned dogs and cats that come through our doors every year.

Sponsorship can also be for particular areas of Battersea's work. For example LV= Insurance supports Battersea's Display team.

Gifts in Kind


This is a practical and valuable way to support the Home. We are always seeking ways to extend partnerships using gifts in kind, which in turn helps us to maximise time and resources towards caring for more animals.

Payroll Giving

Giving as you earn, straight from payroll, is an efficient, tax free way to make a regular donation to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. Donations are tax-free as they are deducted directly from your employees’ salary before tax. This means the value of donations can be increased by a huge 41%. With regular donations we can plan for our future with confidence.
