Partner your brand with the Telethon brand
Corporate support plays a big role in Telethon’s fundraising efforts and we are fortunate to have major partnerships with many leading organisations.
Areas where you can support Telethon are:
SPONSORSHIP OF A MAJOR TELETHON EVENT
This can be in many varied ways. Sometimes we have projects that we are ready to get up and running, however we need sponsorship dolalrs to make it happen. All of our projcets have one common goal and that is to generate money towards each years tallyboard.
SPONSORSHIP OF AN ONGOING PROJECT
We are constantly looking for ways to be in the community twelve months of the year. We have several projects like this happeneing for example; Skywest collect money on every flight, every day of the year in our "Change For kids" program that we initiated with them. Maybe there is a similar venture we can start up with your compnay or business. Specsavers donate money from every eye test carried out in W.A. all year, which in 2010 generated around $100,000.
AN ANNUAL EVENT
Many companies or businesses have the capability to project their own event for Telethon on a big scale. For example, Lexus Of Perth organise the Lexus Ball each year for Telethon. The West Coast Eagles provide Telethon with a game each year where we can collect money. Burswood Entertainment Complex provide infrastructure and staffing to help us run big events like Telethon Mega Bingo. Westfield Shopping Centres have Sunday trade open days and the WA Marathon Club organise the ASICS Bridges Fun Run each year with proceeds going to Telethon. Maybe your company can come up with an annual event that will generate thousands of dolalrs for Telethon.
ANNUAL CORPORATE DONATION
Many companies join us each year on the Telethon Weekend for a cheque presentation on behalf of their company that demonstrates to the community how important it is for their company to be giving back to the community that their employees live and work in. For example, BHP Billiton Iron Ore have come on board with Telethon. So have Wesfarmers, and Harvey Fresh have been a part of the Telethon Family for over twenty years.
BECOME A MILLION DOLLAR PARTNER
Being a Million Dollar Partner with Telethon shows how dedicated your company is to giving back to the community. JWH Group contribute over $1m a year to Telethon through building the two Telethon Homes for us to auction on the Telethon Weekend. Burswood Entertainment Complex became a Million Dollar Partner during Telethon 2010. Australian Capital Equity has been a Million Dollar Partner of Telethon since 2007.
CUSTOMISING A SPECIFIC PROGRAM TO SUIT YOUR BUSINESS OR INDUSTRY
Whatever your business or industry is, the team at Telethon will sit down with you and explore ways to integrate your brand with ours in a way that becomes a "win/win" for everyone.
The benefits to our corporate supporters are both intrinsic and quantifiable.
Since 1968, Telethon has arguably become the most well known local charity in Western Australia. Through support of corporate partners, its own marketing and fundraising efforts plus those of the general public of W.A., Telethon’s beneficiaries have enjoyed enormous financial support.
The Telethon team vigorously fundraises twelve months of the year with a varied and exciting schedule of projects supported by commercial partnerships.
You can join the Telethon Family to make the lives of so many West Australian Children so much better. Your support would provide much needed assistance in areas such as the funding of new medical equipment, aids and devices, medical research into children’s diseases, new facilities, and counselling and support services for children and young people.
