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?
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.

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.
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.
