  • Wiltshire Air Ambulance offers an essential service to our local community, as we know from the experiences of many of our clients. It was, therefore, an easy decision for us to support Wiltshire Air Ambulance in the raising of funds towards the development of the Semington air base and further to help maintain the service through charitable donations. The team at Wiltshire Air Ambulance are very professional and helpful and have also assisted us in forging valued links with other local people and businesses. We’re so glad to be involved

How corporates can support WAA
Supporting us is not always about giving money! Many of the most successful partnerships with businesses come about when a company donates gifts in kind. gifts could include equipment, expertise or even time. Even if at first glance you feel your business has little to offer us, think again - you may be surprised by some of the imaginative partnerships that have been forged! You may also be able to claim tax relief on your gift.Gifts in kind Many companies find CRM/affinity schemes are the most cost-effective way to sell their products and enhance their brand image. Research shows that CRM partnerships are more likely to persuade customers to buy a brand than tie-ups with sports, music or fashion.

A CRM partnership with Wiltshire Air Ambulance will enable your company to connect with customers, gain a great presence in the community and engage with new audiences.
Cause related marketing
By choosing to support one charity over a set period of time, you can really make a difference as your efforts are concentrated in one area. A COTY partnership is a very rewarding way of involving your staff and customers in helping to save lives too.

Even if you are a large company that has a national chosen charity, you may also want to choose us as your local charity to support.
Charity of the year
Everyone benefits from payroll giving - it’s an easy and tax-efficient way for you and your employees to give to Wiltshire Air Ambulance, enabling you to give to charity straight from your gross salary (before tax is deducted). If you give this way, you will receive immediate tax relief of £2-£5 for every £10 donated.

Your regular donations enable us to plan ahead and develop our service with confidence so we can keep flying and be there for anyone who needs us.

Ask your HR department about your company’s payroll giving scheme – you just complete a standard form about your donation and your HR team will do the rest. It’s also worth asking your employer if they match their staff donations to charity.
