At Yorkshire Air Ambulance we work closely with businesses to ensure that the objectives of all parties are not only met but exceeded.

We like to think of our relationships as ‘partnerships’ and work with a number of supporters across the year to develop bespoke packages to fit with individual requirements.

There are lots of ways we can work together, here are just a few.

Ways you business or organisation could support YAA

  • Our Principal Partners

    Everything we do with businesses at YAA is bespoke. We are experienced at working with companies to maximise both the impact they have on the life-saving work we do and the business benefits to our partners.

  • Product Partnerships

    Does your business have a product that might be of interest to YAA, either for fundraising or for use by our charity team or medical crew?

    We have a number of corporate partners who make a donation to YAA from the sale of their products, from eggs and biscuits to parking your car. Some of these things help YAA to save lives.

    We would love to hear from you if you think you have a product that could benefit YAA.

  • Charity of the Year

    Working with YAA is a fantastic way to motivate and involve your staff and employees, engage your customers and stakeholders and reinforce your commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility.

    Adopting YAA as your Charity of the Year partner comes with lots of benefits for you and your team. With your own dedicated YAA staff member to look after the partnership, we can offer lots of help and support, including:

    • A portfolio of challenge events
    • Workplace volunteering opportunities
    • Getting involved in our recycling scheme
    • Payroll giving scheme for staff
    • Attending your company fundraising events
    • Creating positive PR
    • Mascot visits
    • Merchandise to sell
    • Attending your workplace with a YAA stall
    • Bringing our state-of-the-art promotional vehicles to visit your event or workplace
    • Holding a lunch & learn session
    • Attending any dinners & ceremonies
    • Hosting our electronic collecting device
  • Gifts in Kind

    Business often help support YAA by donating gifts in kind, i.e prizes for auctions, business services, skills & equipment.

    We would love to hear from you if you think you have a product that could benefit YAA.

  • Workplace Volunteering

    Our volunteers are a vital part of the YAA Team, without their help and support we would not be able to attend all of the events that we do.

    We have opportunities for your staff to engage with our fundraising teams and volunteers at various events we attend throughout the year.

    These will be mutually beneficial for both organisations, a great way to support your CSR programme and an ideal opportunity for match funding.

  • Payroll Giving

    Some companies choose to support charities through a ‘payroll giving’ scheme, where staff can donate straight from their salary.

    Payroll giving offers tax relief as the donations are taken before any tax is deducted.

    YAA are registered to take payroll donations through both the Pennies from Heaven scheme and the Giveall scheme.

  • Match Funding

    Match funding is a simple and very effective way for boosting any funds raised. Your company agrees to match the monies raised by your employees. This results in a double donation amount and can really help spur staff on to raise money.

  • Dinner & Ceremonies

    Are your company or organisation holding a dinner or an awards ceremony that could raise funds for YAA?

    Our staff are happy to attend and help with any fundraising activities at the event. We can provide support with raffles, auctions and prize draws. Should you wish we can also do a short speech on the work of YAA.

  • Company Trust Donations

    Many companies have a Company Trust Fund that they use to support local charities.

    We have been very fortunate to receive many donations through company trusts over the years and they are a very easy way to make a donation to YAA.

    Our staff are always happy to attend to receive the donation and carry out an official cheque presentation photograph.
