Our Business Partners
Companies make a significant contribution to our mission every year - and 2018 was no exception. The year saw companies of all types help fund our programmes, lend us their expertise and donate their products and services.
Income from private companies totalled €2.9 million across the whole of 2018 - representing a slight year-on-year fall of 7 per cent. Yet the year still saw new companies sign up to support our work and existing supporters deepen their involvement with our mission.
Our key partnerships with ASN Bank and Air Miles were extended over the course of 2018. New partners signing up to support our mission included community organisation SWK Groep and fashion retailer Vingino. Other companies who support us include online retailer Buy Aid, fashion brand Tommy Hilfiger, real estate firm Merin and cosmetics giant Rituals.
We received goods and services worth €1.2 million over the course of the year - thanks to the success of our corporate partner network. This constitutes a growth of over 50 per cent compared with the previous year. In-kind gifts were generously donated by companies including Being There, Xtandit, ADP, Koninklijke Van der Most, Ormit, Microsoft, Plantronics and Palthe Oberman.
The year also saw us expand our search for corporate partners to other territories in Europe - with a team of volunteer fundraisers in Switzerland formed to explore new opportunities.
