Our Fundraising Manager would be happy to visit your school to talk about Milton Keynes Hospital and any ideas that you may have. A discussion about the hospital could support subject areas of the national curriculum such as citizenship and personal social and health education.

Could your company benefit from a partnership with us?

A great atmosphere in the office and promoting creativity; supporting our charity can also promote your organisation to a wider audience, help achieve your Corporate Social Responsibility objectives, motivate and team build, get great PR and make a real difference.

That’s a lot of benefits! Just some of the ways you can help include:

Nominate us as your Charity of the Year 

Nominating the Milton Keynes Hospital Charity as your Charity of the Year is a great way for your whole company to work together to make a really positive impact, by promoting team spirit and boosting staff morale, bringing your employees together in an organised, co-ordinated way.  

Make a corporate donation or gift in kind

You could donate products or services to help our charity. You could donate a prize for a raffle or auction or simply donate pens and paper! We’re really grateful to companies who sponsor our fundraising materials too – and are happy to work with you to ensure your gift is well-publicised. 

Staff volunteering

How about using your employees’ skills to help us? Recently we’ve had John Lewis and Fleetline Cars carry out redecorations of hospital areas, which staff have found incredibly rewarding and motivating. Importantly, your staff get to make a difference to the heart of Milton Keynes Hospital.

We can not only support with you lots of ideas, but provide everything you need to plan your event, whether it's a raffle in the office or dinner for hundreds. We also have strong local PR links. Please contact us for more information at fundraising@mkhospital.nhs.uk or call 01908 996220.

Would you like to leave us a gift in your Will?

Over the years, Milton Keynes Hospital has greatly benefited from the generosity of people leaving us a gift in their will.

Gifts to our charity can make a huge impact but don't have to be huge amounts of money - as little as £50 can help us purchase an item of equipment or pay for a training course.

By leaving a gift in your Will to Milton Keynes Hospital, you can help us ensure that future generations benefit from the best care possible. 

You don’t have to be wealthy to leave a worthwhile gift. Any gift, of whatever size, is precious to our charity - it really will make a difference.  To discuss making a legacy to our hospital, you can call our Head of Communications and Fundraising on 01908 996220.
