Company Fundraising Ideas

Getting involved in the Beacon of Light will not only help transform thousands of local lives, it will make a big difference to your business too.

#backthebeacon – donate now

We hope you’ll pledge to join forces and do your bit to help. The idea is to get everyone together and build a real sense of local pride in your staff.

This is our region – let’s get that community spirit going and build something amazing for the North East.

Being part of something that will have a lasting effect on the region is a great way to boost staff morale, as well as helping with your overall CSR strategy.



There’s so many things your company could do to raise money. Here’s a few ideas to get you thinking:

  • International bake off

Get everyone talking about ‘soggy bottoms’ – this challenges the most unimaginative in the kitchen to channel their inner celebrity chef and rock a creation specific to a country. Everyone pays a certain amount of money to taste the home-bakes once judging has taken place.

  • Company sports day and football match

Get everyone to make up teams and charge an entrance fee for participants. A great way to encourage healthy competition and a real laugh. For those who aren’t sporty and shy away from physical activity, give them the chance to referee or cheer the teams on.

  • Sponsored challenge

Organise a sponsored challenge for your more sporty employees – perhaps a 10k run, a half marathon or a bike ride? Or how about a sponsored silence or a swear box? For the braver among you, maybe a sponsored head shave or back wax? The possibilities are endless.

  • Dress-down days

Staff members could pay a small fee to dress more casually for the day. On Friday’s, it’s a nice way to ease into the weekend and help your community at the same time. Add some fun by organising themed days – footy strips for match days, spooky gear for Halloween or jumpers at Christmas.


Stairway of Light

Become part of the Beacon of Light and help our community take a step in the right direction. Display your brand or company name on a step in the very heart of the building to be seen by over 300,000 people every year.


Beacon Hoarding

We'll answer a problem you'd like to see addressed and your company logo on the Beacon site. It's location on Kier Hardie Way means anyone passing can see we're all working together to make this happen for our community.
