Over and Above charity aims to recognise the support of local companies that help us to reach our goal of creating an environment which exceeds the expectations of patients and visitors in the care of Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust.
Over and Above Charity is a partner that offers motivational power and a cause that everyone will empathise with and relate to.
Wherever you work, fundraising is an easy way to bring work colleagues together and make a real impact on your local healthcare services.
Your support will make a real difference.
Companies of all sizes can partner with us to raise money for your local hospital. You could adopt Over and Above as your Charity of the Year, enter a corporate team in our events, display collection tins on your Reception Desk or hold a dress down day to raise money for us. The options are endless.
Support from your organisation will help us to:
- Enhance the patient and staff environment
- Fund state of the art equipment
- Heighten the level of patient care
- Support additional staff development and training
- Advance medical knowledge through research
- Allow us to go above and beyond NHS funding
Find out how your company can help us make a difference and how our fundraising team can support and work in partnership with you.
How you can make a difference
Make a Donation
The easiest way your organisation can help is to simply make a donation. Our services care for everyone across Northern and Eastern Devon. Whatever your chosen area of support, we will be able to make your donation have a really positive impact on the people who need it the most.
This is a unique way for people to give regularly. It allows employees to give money to enhance our hospitals and community services directly from their pay before tax is deducted. We can provide support to help set up Payroll Giving within your company or alternatively if you already have payroll giving, you could just add us to your list of charities to support.
Charity of the Year
Having a designated ‘charity of the year’ can really unite staff in a common goal and cultivates a sense of pride in the company. We would be delighted if you could consider us to be your chosen charity for the year. We would of course work closely with you, helping you with all your fundraising ideas and events. You would also have a designated member of the fundraising team who would manage your partnership with us, keeping you regularly updated on how your support is making a difference to the patients we care for.
There are so many fun and easy ways your staff can raise money for us. Lunchtimes are great for holding a cake/bun sale or you could simply organise a ‘dress down’ day. Our fundraisers can provide you with literally hundreds of ideas for raising money and can work with you to ensure you produce a successful event your company can be proud of.
Many companies operate a matched giving scheme whereby whatever money is raised by staff for our charity is matched by the company. This could also be put in place if your employees volunteer at one of our charity events – your company could “give” them their time to volunteer. Plus matching any money raised by your staff is a great way to increase staff morale, provides an even bigger incentive to maximise their success and doubles the money for charity!
Giving a gift-in-kind is an easy way for your company to help us to reduce costs and spend more money directly on our appeals. We are always particularly grateful for donations of products and services which can be used as prizes for raffles and auctions at our fundraising events.
Holding an event or a fundraising challenge can be a fantastic way to raise money and at the same time provide employees with an exciting team building experience. Whatever the idea, if you have a group of colleagues who want to do a team skydive or one of our running events our fundraising team will work closely with you to maximise your success.
Organising such an event can often be time consuming and stressful, however once you have selected your activity we deal with all of the administration and operational side of the project. This will leave you to deal with the important part of raising money and enjoying the event in a hassle free way.
