Corporate giving has already played a huge part in our success in bringing eight new treatments from the lab to clinical trial.

Charity Partnership

We will discuss your aims and ambitions and work closely with you to develop and support your CSR goals; to bring employees together with a sense of purpose, engagement, connection, impact and reward; to raise funds and have lots of fun at the same time!

Staff-led Fundraising

This is the most popular way for corporate partners support Breakthrough. We have partners who host once-off nationwide charity days in all of their branches and other partners who organise monthly events in specific stores. What will your staff choose to do? We’ll support them every step of the way.


  • Breakthrough has been fortunate to have had the support of amazing volunteers throughout the years.
  • We would be thrilled to speak with you about how volunteers from your company can give their time and share their skills to help cancer research.
  • We have a variety of events, conferences and flag days where volunteers are always needed and welcome.
  • Some employees are always able to use their expertise to help with certain specialist projects. Talk to our corporate team today about how we can match volunteering opportunities with the skills, expertise and availability of your employees.

Payroll Giving

Regular monthly giving is a vital part of the funds raised for Breakthrough each year. Some of our corporate partners allow their employees to set up a regular small donation which is given automatically through their payroll each month. Talk to us about how to set up this type of scheme with your company and how tax efficient giving can allow those making a monthly gift over €21 per month to also allows us to claim a tax refund from their donation at no cost to them.

Also if your company decides to contribute alongside your staff, this contribution is tax deductible.

Matched Giving

Matched giving is a great way to incentivise employees to go the extra mile with their fundraising efforts, boost their engagement and double their impact. It is also possible for your company to get tax back on donations over €250 – claiming a deduction for the donation as if it were a trading expense reducing your corporation tax bill.

Sponsor an event

    • Each year we run a variety of exciting fundraising and public education events. We would not be able to run many of these events without sponsorship.
    • Sponsoring a Breakthrough Cancer Research event can work in many different ways, bringing a host of benefits such as increasing brand awareness, generating positive PR for your company, staff engagement and showing commitment to your local community.

Cause-related marketing

    • Marketing partnerships linked to specific products are an amazing way of raising awareness of cancer research, whilst raising much-needed funds.
    • One in two of us will experience cancer at some point in our lifetime, so many of your customers will know someone affected. Your support to raise awareness of the issue could save and change lives.
    • Breakthrough Cancer Research is lucky to have some great long-standing partnerships in this area, but we are very keen to develop this part of our work.
