Support Us – Corporate Social Responsibility
We are an award-winning, all-volunteer not for profit organisation. We rely upon pay as you feel donations and membership to cover our basic running costs. For everything else- securing a full time premises, equipment, capital projects, etc – we need donations and grants from company partners.
Our objectives are to reduce Watford’s carbon footprint whilst proving a welcoming environment for all.
We welcome approaches from any organisation looking to strengthen their core business values while contributing to the local community. Your donation can make a real difference, whether it’s a one-off contribution or a longer-term corporate partnership. Choosing to work with Random Café can have a lasting impact for both of us: we get the funds we need, and your organisation benefits from partnering with an award-winning social enterprise.
Partnering with or donating to Random Café is a great way to enhance your reputation as a socially responsible enterprise. It can help you build a positive reputation, which can, in turn, lead to competitive advantage.
Partnering with Random Café to Match Your Corporate Social Responsibility Goals
We currently have two major capital projects that require funding via corporate partnerships or donations from Corporate Social Responsibility budgets:
- A major capital project to repair and outfit a full time premises to enable us to run full time cafés and events. This will also allow us to offer placements for students attending West Herts College.
- Further funding would allow us to complete the payments on our all electric van. Having an all electric van reduces the carbon footprint of our organisation and in turn the carbon footprint of Watford.
We believe that both these areas offer worthwhile advantages in terms of corporate partnership and support opportunities for organisations that share our values. We would be delighted to discuss how we might help you to achieve your CSR objectives, whether they relate to socially responsible investment, developing relationships with employees and customers or environmental protection and sustainability.
