Corporate partners

VSO International needs experienced people to volunteer, expertise to shape its strategic response to poverty and funding to realise our goals.

Businesses need ways of inspiring and developing their staff. They need to demonstrate to stakeholders that they are good corporate citizens. Many are now actively seeking ways to use their business to effect positive change in the lives of disadvantaged communities in the areas in which they operate and the wider world.

Our corporate partnerships provide ways to achieve all these objectives and more. Each partnership is tailored to meet the needs of your organisation to deliver business value and to increase VSO International’s impact in the fight against poverty.

Current partnerships

Our current partnerships include:

  • employee volunteering schemes which place staff with VSO partner organisations abroad on a secondment basis

  • strategic programme funding opportunities in areas of business focus

  • corporate challenges – specially crafted challenges for teams of employees

  • staff fundraising opportunities including bespoke events managed jointly by VSO and business partners

  • gifts in kind.
