Partnering with the Teapot Trust Why and How? To create a sustainable funding model, enabling more children with chronic conditions to benefit from our art therapy services in hospitals, we need to harness significant public and private funds including mutually fruitful partnerships with Corporate Partners. Mindful of the CSR criteria of many companies in choosing a charity partner, we’ve reimagined what Teapot Trust’s strategic Corporate Partnerships could look like and identified sectors where there’s a logical fit, a shared purpose and genuine opportunities for reciprocity. In each case, we’ve considered the benefits to potential partners, identified self-contained projects that companies might wish to ‘own’ and focused in on the factors that make a partnership ideal from our perspective. Whether you can offer staff led fundraising, pro bono support, volunteering, a charity-of-the-year commitment or want to discuss a longer-term partnership, we’d like to hear from you. It’s important to understand that while we’ve been as specific as possible in our ‘wish list’, to facilitate dialogue, we obviously want to explore any possibilities, so please do get in touch!

Given that we use art therapy to enrich our young patients lives, it’s fitting that our Corporate Partnerships usually include an element of creativity and fun – often through events that also serve as a means of team building.
