Sporadic donors use the payment channel of their choice, e.g. Swish, BG, SMS, bank transfer, dividends, wills, fundraisers via for example Facebook or Better now, etc.

4.2.1. Corporate or Organisational Supporters
Corporate or Organisational Supporters are corporates and organisations that support Help to Help financially without agreements. Donations coming from this segment are generally one-off unrestricted funds.
4.2.2. Corporate or Organisational Partnerships
Corporate or Organisational Partnerships are defined cooperations in written agreements that include a commitment to support the Help to Help vision and mission, generate funds and/or supporting services.
Besides raising funds, a Corporate or Organisational Partnership also aims to increase knowledge about and promote actions to ensure that more people can access higher education and increased chances for employment. Funding Partnerships is also an avenue to reach new and broader targets groups with information about Help to Help’s work. All joint communication with donors, use of Help to Help’s logo as well as the size of the donation are always regulated in written agreements.
All Corporate or Organisational Partnership agreements clearly states that Help to Help will always reserve the right to critically review and criticise our partners and that we have the right to decline any partnership proposal or terminate any active partnership, if we conclude that the partner through its actions do not live up to the commitment to support the Help to Help’s vision and mission. Final decision to reject or terminate a partnership lies with the Managing Director.
We distinguish between two types of Corporate or Organisational Partnerships: “Fundraising Partnerships” and “Pro-bono Partnerships”.
188.8.131.52. Fundraising Partnerships
We refer to Fundraising Partnerships when a Company or an Organisation have agreed to support us financially on a long-term basis or within the scope of one of our campaigns. We seek Fundraising Partnerships based on the below criteria and consult with regional and program managers for relevant input to develop funding opportunities:
- Shared values and support of Help to Help’s vision and mission
- Our ability to deliver
- Relevant CSR strategies
- Brand fit
- Communications and target group reach
- Long-term stability
Before signing a partnership, a more detailed vetting will be done by the Managing Director. The Managing Director has the right to make decisions and sign partnership agreements. However, in case of any doubts as to whether the partnership will or will not benefit the organisation, the proposed partnership shall be presented to the Board who will make the final decision.
184.108.40.206. Pro-bono Partnerships
Pro-bono donations that offset costs are called Pro-bono Partnerships.
