Why not explore our word of the day:


Corporate Partners

The Proud Trust provides the opportunity for companies to support and partner with a progressive, grassroots organisation that saves and enhances the lives of LGBT+ children and young people from across the country.

We are seeking forward-thinking corporate partners to join us on our mission. Will you join us?

  • For every £1 invested in The Proud Trust we have a Social Impact Value of £4.
  • Research shows that LGBT+ employees are 20-30% more productive if they are ‘out’ at work and feel supported. By visibly supporting an LGBT+ charity you confirm that you are an ally to the community.
  • The LGBT+ population of Greater Manchester is around 215,000, with approximately 430,000 LGBT+ people in the Northwest, the need for charities such as The Proud Trust is great.
  • We are the largest LGBT+ youth charity in the country and we are growing as we find ways to support young LGBT+ people locally and nationally.

You can read more about why you should support The Proud Trust here.

There are many ways companies can work in partnership with The Proud Trust to promote diversity and inclusion, skills development, confidence building and health awareness, all whilst saving and dramatically improving the lives of the young LGBT+ population.

We always work to ensure the objectives of our partners are met, as well as our own.

Below you can explore some of our ideas for ways your company can get involved and support the work of The Proud Trust:

  • Make a corporate donation to our LGBT+ Centre, the first of its kind in Europe!
  • Sponsor one of our many youth groups or training provisions – this is a great opportunity to increase the awareness of your organisation within the LGBT+ community.
  • Adopt The Proud Trust as your charity of the year and we can support you with fundraising event ideas and advice.
  • Sponsorship and cause related marketing: link your brand to ours at the point of purchase for commercial benefits and branding rights to directly boost sales. We can work on a sponsored product together!

We create a bespoke package of benefits for all of our corporate supporters, which can include:

  • Affiliation with our successful, highly regarded and professional charity.
  • Delivery of LGBT+ inclusion training and consultancy, including advice on the creation of your own LGBT+ staff group.
  • Direct contact with our beneficiaries – the young LGBT+ community.
  • Opportunities for employee involvement and volunteering.
  • Branding on our materials and recognition through our social media channels, website and press releases.
  • Use of our LGBT+ Centre venue to use for corporate training or away days.
  • Enhanced reputation as a progressive and inclusive company amongst the LGBT+ community and wider public.
  • Regular contact with a dedicated staff member at The Proud Trust, experienced in fundraising and corporate partnerships.
