Sightsavers has built strong relationships with many corporate partners who support us in various ways. Our sight-saving work wouldn’t be possible without their generosity.

In return for such generosity, we offer a range of clear business benefits. These include:

  • Objectives that will contribute to your strategy
  • Press and social media coverage
  • Brand awareness
  • Help fulfilling your CSR objectives


Your CRM initiatives

Cause-related marketing (CRM) initiatives are a great way to raise funds while also having a positive impact on sales and increasing brand equity for both partners.

There are plenty of CRM models that are very effective in a retail environment. These include:

  • A fixed donation on a product or range of products where the donation equates to a specific element of Sightsavers’ work
  • Social media engagement: recruit fans and encourage them to share content with a joint promotion
  • Prompt payment: encourage corporate clients to settle invoices early with a donation made for payments received within a given period (such as 14 days).


Your CSR objectives

Sightsavers has a wide portfolio of sponsorship opportunities available for your company. Our team will help you find the right sponsorship package to add value to your business, gain great publicity and fulfil your CSR objectives.

Sponsor a project

Many companies choose to sponsor a project in one of the countries where we work. Sponsorship packages range from funding a pioneering hospital in India to purchasing vehicles for outreach services in Africa.

Sightsavers is regarded as a leader in international development by our partners. The projects we support make a real difference to the lives of our beneficiaries, which is why many high-profile international and multinational companies choose to support our projects.
