Corporate Fundraising

Most small businesses don’t have large marketing budgets, and most large companies are approached regularly by charities.  We can help you spend yours wisely, promoting your business in our shared community.  We can also help your company make a measurable difference to local people in our shared community. 

So, how can the Chilterns MS Centre support your business?

‘My business is more profitable through engagement with local charities.’ Andrew Howard,   Beechdean   Group, manufacturer of Beechdean ice cream

We are a friendly, dynamic and ambitious local charity.  Whatever form our partnership takes, we will work hard to ensure it has value and meaning for you, your partners, colleagues and stakeholders. 

We will help promote your brand and enhance your reputation locally, helping you make a meaningful difference to disadvantaged people in Bucks, Herts, Beds and surrounding counties.  We can help motivate your employees and customers. 

Below you will find some ways in which we could work together.  If you would like more information, please call Sharon Cooper 01296 823048 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Thank you.

Networking events 

The Chilterns MS Centre organises regular networking events for local businesses. Typically 70-80 people attend our events from 40-50 businesses to hear world-class speakers.  For a donation to our charity of just £10 per person (free for our Corporate Friends), why not come along to the next event?  Enjoy drinks and nibbles, network with local businesses and support a local charity, all in one pleasurable evening!

Our next event will be at the Chilterns MS Centre on Thursday 15 March.  Arrive for 5.30pm for a tour of our facilities and an opportunity to meet people with multiple sclerosis, or arrive for 6pm for the networking and speakers.  

March’s speaker will be Sophie Devonshire, CEO at The Caffeine Partnership.  Sophie is an experienced business leader, entrepreneur and brand specialist. Having worked for Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola GB, Interbrand and Leo Burnett, Sophie founded and sold an e-commerce business, was CEO of a luxury gifts brand and has launched a strategic brand consultancy.  Her 20 minute talk is entitled ‘How to lead in a world of speed’.

Are you suffering from information overload? Probably! A recent study found that we're bombarded by the equivalent of 174 newspapers' worth of data a day. In one day alone, 300 million photos are uploaded to Facebook. People tweet 500 million times. Brits make on average 132 million mobile phone calls. The growth in the internet and 24-hour television means we now receive five times as much information every day as we did 30 years ago. Is it any wonder we feel tired sometimes?! 

Help is at hand!   Sophie Devonshire, a self-confessed 'acceleration addict', will advise us how to find a way to get the pace right for us in this ever-accelerating world.  Sophie will be preceded by Carly Ward of The Entrepreneurial Education Group (Chilterns MS Centre Gold Corporate Friend), who will speak for a few minutes about how she set up her first business at just 19 years old. 

To find out more about the event on 15 March, please click here.  To book your place, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone 01296 823040. Thank you.

Gifts in kind

Giving – without making a financial donation!  We are always grateful to receive gifts that will save us money or can be raffled or auctioned to raise money. We love to accept companies’ donations of time and expertise.  We also love to raise awareness of MS and the Chilterns MS Centre in companies’ brochures.  

‘We don’t charge the Chilterns MS Centre for its printing because you helped my father so much. He loved the sense of community at the Centre.‘ 
Mark Player, Greens Digital

Payroll Giving

There are many payroll giving agencies that process employees' payments to charity on a company’s behalf, in many cases this doesn’t cost the employer anything and is a great way to show the outside world.

‘I am so grateful for the support you give my mother-in-law that I wanted to make a regular donation to the Centre.  My monthly donation is matched by my employer.  I am so impressed by the Centre, it's the least I can do.’ Thomas, Deutsche Bank

Our Trading Activity

Oakwood Wellbeing is how the Centre delivers a range of high quality health, fitness and wellbeing services to people other than those affected by MS.
