23 April 2013 at 12:05 pm
A major company in the family entertainment business is looking for a Not for Profit to form a three year partnership working with disadvantaged children worth $450 000 in total financial support.
The $150,000 cash per annum partnership is expected to include an opportunity for significant exposure across media platforms including TV (reaching 2 million households), online, cinema (over 5million people reached) and in-home (over 6million people reached).
The founder of corporate-cause consulting firm Cavill and Co, Hailey Cavill says her client is looking to invest with a charity partner and promote its cause to millions of households across Australia.
“The company is seeking a charity that is working to address ‘life skills’ for disadvantaged children in Australia,” she said.
The prospective Not for Profit must:
- Be a registered national (or nationally-accessed internet based) organisation working within Australia with DGR status
- Be willing to be publicly aligned with a family entertainment company
- Be a registered Not for Profit organisation working to address the development of life skills for disadvantaged children
- It is important that the development of life skills for disadvantaged children is core to the organisation’s purpose and not a small offshoot program/service
- Predominantly serve children, aged 0 – 12, both boys and girls
- Demonstrate alignment with at least three of the client’s values: Innovation, Storytelling, Optimism, Family, Unlimited Creativity, Magic, Fun
- Have some meaningful, varied volunteering opportunities for its client’s staff in Sydney and Melbourne (media-savvy professionals with core skills in creative, marketing, sales and finance)
- Be able to evaluate and measure what the organisation does to show credible, tangible, practical results/outcomes
Cavill says that her client is particularly keen to hear from children’s charities that are using innovative technology to benefit disadvantaged children.
The prospective NFP must NOT:
- Be a government entity (although if it is independent and has less than 80% government funding that is acceptable)
- Provide services exclusively for one gender eg. exclusively for girls or exclusively for boys
- Be overtly religious or elitist
- Be a fundraising appeal, a medical research institute or a hospital
- Be a charity that has a disease in its brand or organisational name
The corporate says they will not invest in:
- A program that benefits people outside of Australia
- Capital funds, building works, individual's' salary or a fundraising campaign (educational campaign is acceptable)
- A charity that has more than two other partners or sponsors in the media &/or family entertainment area, publicly aligned
- A charity, cause or Not for Profit that was founded less than two years ago
To be considered for this partnership more information is available here.
Submission must be made before Friday 10 May 2013 at 10am.
