The DEC calls upon the Rapid Response Network (RRN) when a disaster occurs to raise funds quickly and effectively. The RRN is made up of TV and radio broadcasters, banks, the Post Office, BT, press, and corporate organisations that work together with the DEC to achieve maximum publicity and cost-effective ways for the public to make donations.
SUPPORT AN APPEAL
Who gets you through?
Celebrate a special colleague, or a partner or supplier who has helped get your business through this challenging time by making a donation in their honour. Then nominate others to do the same using the hashtag #whogetsyouthrough. Celebrate, donate, nominate!
MATCHED OR PAYROLL GIVING
Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme enabling employees to make tax-free charitable donations.
By setting up a gift through your payroll, your employees can make charitable donations straight from their salary.
The CAF Give As You Earn toolkit will help you set up and promote this scheme to your staff.
Why not join a number of our other partners, such as Deutsche Bank, National Grid and Sky, by matching your employees’ donations to DEC appeals. Matching employee donations is a great way to increase employee engagement, by showing support for the charities they care about.
If you do not already have a matched giving programme in place, you can find out more at the CAF website.
