Variety – the Children’s Charity plans and implements partnership programs that achieve the goals and objectives of our corporate partners and the children whose lives are positively impacted by the partnership.

  • sponsor events and programs
  • work-place payroll giving

  • Corporations can improve their public image by supporting Variety through providing goods & services in kind, monetary donations, volunteerism, sponsoring events & programs, workplace giving, staff & customer fundraising events and strong partnerships

Why Partner with Variety

Boosts your employee engagement

  • When companies demonstrate that they are dedicated to improving their communities through corporate giving programs (like matching gifts and volunteer grants!), they are more likely to attract and retain valuable, hardworking, and engaged employees
  • If a corporation is philanthropically minded, job-hunting individuals are more likely to apply and interview for available positions. Once hired, employees who are engaged will stay with a company longer, be more productive on a daily basis, and will be more creative than disengaged workers

**Takeaway: Corporate social responsibility helps attract and retain engaged and productive employees**

Why Partner with Variety

For larger companies, csr attracts & retains investors

  • Investors large & small want to know that their funds are building shareholder value and that the organisation is operating responsibly with sound business planning, budgets & transparency in reporting, but it also means that they are increasingly demanding a strong sense of corporate social responsibility.
  • Investors are more likely to be attracted to and continue to support companies that demonstrate a commitment not only to employees and customers, but also to causes and organizations that impact the lives of others

**Takeaway:  Investors care about corporate social responsibility and so should every company**
