As the national charity for homeless people, Crisis is well-respected for high-profile campaigning for political changes needed to end homelessness for good.
Partnering with us shows your company’s commitment to ending homelessness. Your organisation can also play a significant part in a rapidly growing campaign for social change, by pledging support for our Everybody In campaign.
Publicly associating your brand with Crisis can also be a powerful way of increasing your sales, improving customer loyalty and reaching out to and engaging with new audiences. Below are some ways a partnership with Crisis can help to grow your brand.
Cause-related marketing campaigns (CRMs)
Consumers are more likely to buy a product or service associated with a cause that inspires them. Your account manager can work with you to develop a cause-related marketing campaign, where a portion of sales of a product are donated to Crisis.
We have delivered several successful CRM campaigns: recent partners have included Waitrose and Innocent.
Crisis Christmas Card campaign
Each year, Crisis at Christmas offers a first step out of homelessness for over 4,000 guests. It is a huge volunteer effort, bringing together a cohort of 10,000 extraordinary volunteers effort who provide safety, companionship and vital healthcare and advice services to homeless people at one of the most difficult times of the year. We also encourage our guests to continue accessing support when Christmas ends, through our year-round services.
Every year we invite companies to support us at Christmas through our Crisis Christmas Card campaign, which is produced in conjunction with the Financial Times.
The benefits of participating in the campaign include:
- Your company’s logo featuring in a high-profile double-page spread and the Financial Times, promoted to the UK’s business elite
- Your company will receive a bespoke copy of the Crisis Christmas Card film
- You will receive e-cards branded to your company that you can use to promote your connection to Crisis with your colleagues, customers and stakeholders.

How sponsorship helps
Crisis Square Mile Run
The Crisis Square Mile Run series – our flagship challenge event – takes place each June.
Taking place in the early evening, the route passes iconic London landmarks including St Paul’s Cathedral and the Tate Modern. The eight mile relay race and four mile solo race combined raise over £150,000 a year towards Crisis’ year-round services and campaigns.
From 2015-2018, the Crisis Square Mile Run was sponsored by MFS Investment Management, and in 2019 Crisis invites your company to take up the baton and grow your brand through sponsorship of the events.
