 he story of Capital One and T YouthNet Once upon a time, there was a business looking to invest in a national partnership for the first time and a small charity seeking significant investment for a transformation. How and why did these partners come together, both at a time of change, to develop a long-term strategic partnership? What were the challenges? How is ‘value’ assessed? What are the tactics for making big strategic partnerships a reality rather than just a fairy tale for small charities? Jemma Guerrier, Deputy Director of Development, YouthNet Alison Gardner, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility, Capital One

15.45 Breaking down silos Shine took the decision to merge the Community & Events and Marketing & Communications teams into the Marketing & Events team. This move has led to increased efficiency, better communications, a more professional standard across these work areas, and an increase in income. By integrating more areas of work into the team since then, such as In Mem, Corporate, Regular Giving, and Mailings, they are building an incredibly strong foundation with which to expand our work in the coming years. Tom Scott, Marketing & Events Manager, Shine 16.25 Case study: Evolution of strategic partnerships Launched in November 2012, the two year national charities partnership with Action for Literacy (an alliance between the National Literacy Trust and Dyslexia Action) and Shelter aims to help 8,300 young people access better literacy provision, and to keep 2,100 families secure in their homes. The programme has evolved beyond a traditional, fundraising focused “charity of the year” model g, to a strategic corporate/charity partnership, collaborating to support social issues aligned with their business. Through the programme KPMG is using their skills and expertise to make a tangible and sustainable impact in local communities, focused on: • Policy support • Pro bono support • Skilled volunteering • Fundraising. Emma Malcolm, Director of Fundraising and Marketing, Dyslexia Action Isabel Thompson, Senior Manager CSR, KPMG 17.05 Closing remarks from the Chair, Douglas Campbell Rouse, Corporate Partnerships Director, Save the Children
