"PRA Health Sciences is proud to support Motivation and the outstanding work that it does. We both share a passion for improving lives and PRA salutes Motivation for responding to the needs of others around the world".

It’s good to do business

Most people agree that today the business world has an important role to play in helping to create a fairer, more sustainable society. At Motivation we work alongside companies, both large and small, from global corporations to local family run businesses, to create positive change for disabled people in the developing world.

Together we can achieve more. Here are just some of the ways that your company can team up with Motivation:

Corporate Partnerships

At Motivation, working with a company is about more than receiving financial support. It’s about developing a mutually beneficial partnership, where both organisations share skills, expertise and knowledge to achieve more. One of our long standing partners is British Airways, who over the years has given us over 100 free flights enabling us to focus our resources on direct charitable activities, instead of travel which can be costly.

Our newest corporate collaboration is with Google.org, who have chosen to support Motivation over the next two years, with a grant to explore how we can use and apply 3D printing to develop a new generation of postural support devices. Combining their technical expertise and our passion for improving quality of life, we hope to develop some innovative new mobility solutions.  

Fundraising at Work

A Charity of the Year partnership with Motivation is a fantastic way to motivate and unite your employees while helping us to raise vital funds and awareness for our cause. Last year a team of over 25 employees from PRA Health Sciences raised £15,000 by cycling from their office in Reading to Paris. And in 2016, we are delighted to announce that CTN Communications, who are a creative communications agency, has adopted Motivation. So if you would like to join them and run a Charity of the Year scheme, we would love to hear from you.

Cause Related Marketing & Sponsorship

Corporate sponsorship will enable your company to be associated with Motivation’s global programmes, innovative projects and awareness campaigns, reaching over 20,000 people every year. By aligning our brands we can increase awareness, drive sales and raise vital funds to support disabled people around the world. Call us today if you have a commercial idea or want to explore how we can work together.

Payroll Giving

If you are not so keen on running a marathon or jumping out of an aeroplane but would still like to make a contribution, you can do so really cost effectively through payroll giving, which allows you to make donations directly from your pay or company pension. The donations are made after your National Insurance contributions are calculated but before Income Tax is worked out and deducted. Because of this, you only pay tax on what's left. This means that you get tax relief on your donation immediately - and at your highest rate of tax.

Talk to your HR department or company secretary about whether a scheme is already in place, but if not, setting up a scheme is easy, and the costs are minimal. To learn more about how payroll giving works visit HMRC. Or register with one of the following Payroll Giving Agencies and they will talk you through the process: Charities Aid Foundation (CAF); Charitable Giving; or the Charities Trust

Benefits to your company

Whether you are a local to our offices in Bristol or have sites in some of the countries that we work around the world, we can provide a tailor-made partnership to help deliver your key objectives, including:

  • a dedicated account manager
  • stories and photos to motivate staff
