HOW YOUR BUSINESS CAN HELP
As a registered charity, we rely heavily on funding, businesses and members of the public to continue providing services to young people of Warrington
If you use Amazon for your shopping, did you know that by switching to the Smile version of Amazon, you can nominate the Warrington Youth Club Charity to receive 0.5% donation of their shopping spend – and at no extra cost to you! You will pay exactly the same for your goods as if you had made your purchases on the Amazon website. Start shopping today and bring a Smile to our faces!
.. and as of September 2019, it is now possible to use Amazon Smile via the Amazon shopping App on your phone.

Championing our events – Corporate sponsorship
WYC runs several fundraising events each year attracting many supporters. For each event, there is a variety of opportunities for sponsorship which will raise the profile of your company.
Charity of the Year Partnerships
Why not make WYC your chosen charity for one year? Together we can make a difference to the lives of young people and also help raise the profile of your company – its a perfect way to raise staff morale by getting them to back a great cause. And of course, you’re welcome to come along to WYC to meet some of members to see exactly where your money goes!
We can offer Enterprise Support for 16-25 yr olds to support them into further training or employment. We run job clubs and enterprise programmes and we are always interested in reaching out to businesses for their knowledge and guidance. This could include delivering a session on your area of business, running work placements or even taking on a young person as an apprenticeship.
Getting your staff involved
Fundraising in the workplace can be fun and generate a little healthy competition across staff teams to help with morale. Alternatively (or as well as), staff could volunteer, become a mentor or take on a challenge.
Gifts In Kind
As a charity, sourcing expensive items of equipment can sometimes be out of our reach. We are always on the look out for donations of equipment such as sports goods, or arts & craft materials. We host many events for our members throughout the year, including Halloween and Christmas parties so any suitable donations such as decorations, Christmas toys or raffle prizes are always gratefully received.
Make A Donation
A donation of any size can really make a difference at WYC and the young people of Warrington; £5 will pay for one young person’s membership at Youth Club for 1 year and £25 covers the costs for opening the Youth Gym for one evening.
It’s easy to donate! Simply go to our donation page. You can pay by card or set up a standing order to become a regular donor.
