Sponsor or Donate to a Veteran
We have many veterans with hearing loss caused by their service protecting our country. Their specific type of hearing loss (which is high frequency) requires advanced technology to return to civilian life and compete for a new job or socialise with their friends and family. The impact on their mental health is huge. We all see the figures of suicides, family break ups and living on the streets…
For a set amount, we can arrange for one veteran to be fitted with the best technology hearing system available on the market, with aftercare for 3 years with a leading Independent Audiologist who ensure quality of assessment and service. We also look after another veteran with this donation with tinnitus or mental health issues and this may be a course of counselling, a piece of equipment, or even respite to help recovery.
It is certainly worth considering the impact of your business relationship with charities.
Define your brand Identity
The charitable initiatives of your company can be an integral part of your brand, positioning your business as reliable and ethical. Supporting a charity can help enhance your brand image, reputation, increase exposure and make your business stand out.
Increase your reach to a wider audience
For national and regional businesses, having a charitable presence in your community can increase your reach to a wider audience. Sponsoring local charities can introduce your brand to new audience groups, donating to national charities can boost the visibility of your brand on a national level.
Boosts employee morale
Seeing the organisation they work for support charitable causes, increases positivity amongst employees. Feeling proud to work for a philanthropic company can also increase employee loyalty and retention.
Better public relations
Sharing the stories of sponsorships, charitable events and donations can benefit your company from several perspectives. Media coverage can let the public know that your business is involved with charitable support, as well as reinforce to your employees that they’ve made the right choice to work for you.
If managed well, successful relationships with charities can positively impact the reputation your organisation.
It’s good for your community
This is undoubtedly the biggest benefit, but don’t disregard the other advantages of working closely with charities, as they can make a big difference to your staff morale, public relations and ultimately, your bottom line.
What do we do for you?
- Once the veteran is successfully fitted, we create a story to launch on our website.
- We then publicize the story across our social media channels (ie Linkedin, Facebook etc)
- We will provide you with a Friends of the Foundation Logo to put on your website to represent your support.
- You may, of course, use your goodwill story in all of your social media, CSR and marketing to enhance your brand communications.
- We will provide you with a page on our Friends of the Foundation section within the site, to publicise your support and sponsorship of a veteran with hearing loss.
Help Us Fit More Veterans!
Since becoming a charity, we have managed to fit over 50 veterans with top-class hearing aids! However, we still have more than 2,500 veterans who need our help in getting back to a normal standard of life after the hearing damage they received in their years of service. Any donations we receive are a huge help in the lives of our vets and we are eternally grateful for whatever you may be able to spare.
Proudly supporting those who serve!
