Facilitate private sector donations to VCSE groups

AskFiveicon

Recent Comprehensive Spending Reviews have seen a dramatic shortfall in funding to both public and VCSE sectors, whilst government has signalled the need for organisations to diversify their income streams to meet this challenge.

 

The private sector is frequently identified as a potential supporter of VCSE activity. However the mechanisms and pathways to support this are relatively undeveloped. The current approach to private sector support relies on a few tried and tested formulas, such as corporate social responsibility programmes and pro bono work. This could be enhanced by empowering each private sector worker to make a more immediate and direct contribution via payroll giving and access to modern philanthropy.

 

We ask the new Mayor to:

 

  • Facilitate private sector donations to VCSE

  • Open a dialogue between LVSC and leading private sector partners

  • Widen and facilitate opportunities for engagement

  • Increase access to philanthropists, guilds and related associations
