The generous support that we receive from our business partners, event sponsors and event participants enables us to continue with our core work of supporting patients and their families throughout New Zealand living with blood cancer or a related blood condition.
In return, we strive to work closely to develop and sustain a rewarding relationship for us both.
Why should businesses support LBC?
- We are the only national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting patients and their families with blood cancer
- We receive no government funding so seek support to ensure that we can continue to be there for the estimated 10,000 people living in New Zealand with a blood cancer diagnosis
- We are a well-established and trusted charity, having been in operation since 1977
- We are well known and respected in New Zealand, both in regard to the support we provide and the iconic fundraising events that we manage. These include: Shave for a Cure, Step Up Sky Tower Stair Challenge, Firefighter Sky Tower Stair Challenge, and SKYCITY Dining for a Difference.
What are the different ways that businesses can support LBC?
There are numerous ways you can partner with LBC. Please contact Annabel Lush, Business Manager on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further.
Donation of Goods and Services
We are keen to talk about what you may have to offer and how it could reduce our overhead costs for our events or overall operations.
LBC’s fundraising events are great ways for staff and business stakeholders to engage and team build and can assist with your objectives. Whether it’s shaving their heads or training to run up the Sky Tower, they have fun while fundraising for LBC, often matched by funds from their employer. You can also create other innovative ways to raise funds at work or in the community for our cause.
We can tailor a sponsorship of one of our major events that will both meet your strategic objectives and ensure that we can run the event as cost neutral as possible so that all funds raised can be used for core services.
A financial contribution can make a major impact. It may be for our core support services or for the targeted research that LBC funds to seek treatments and cures and to improve the lives of those battling a blood cancer.
Payroll giving enables your staff to regularly donate to LBC through your payroll – it provides tax and administrative benefits for the employee while they are making a difference.
