Some of these are as follows:
Gifts in kind
Donate gifts for our top fundraisers, competition gifts, prizes for our auctions and raffles, or wine and champagne for receptions at our events. We're grateful for all gifts in kind from corporate supporters.
This is the simplest way for your employees to give a regular donation in support of our research and information programmes. Payroll giving is easy and tax-efficient, costing you less whilst giving us more! Gifts are taken directly out of earnings before tax is deducted therefore every pound donated comes to us in full.
Many of our company donations are a result of staff nominations through a charitable trust, foundation, Christmas fund or charity committee, therefore you and your colleagues can be vital to our success in this area. We can also allocate your company donation to a specific project.
We know that staff fundraising opportunities are key to many charity partnerships. We have a selection of events in which employees can join in as a team or individual. See our events and challenges section for upcoming activities. You can also encourage employees to create their own fundraising activity to raise money for us. Our team will provide support and advice for fundraising ideas you have.

Jo from Intrepid Bebe has written a beautiful poem about her time in hospital with her premature baby girl.
Paulo and Melinda Almeida became founding members of our new giving club Tommy’s25 after benefiting from pioneering research and care at Tommy’s Maternal and Fetal Reseach Centre in London.
'I was able to enjoy my pregnancy knowing that I had been given the best treatment possible and there was never any sign of pre-term labour.'
Tara gave birth to Felix under the care of Professor Shennan and the team at Tommy's Pre-term clinic at St Tomas' Hospital, London.
'Our world came crashing down. Saying goodbye to her was the hardest thing my husband and I have ever had to do and we will never forget our beautiful daughter'
I knew that the second pregnancy would be difficult but nothing prepared me for the anxiety I felt at every stage of the pregnancy.
Recent research achievements in miscarriage and stillbirth, premature birth, pre-eclampsia and general pregnancy health.
In addition to our core work on miscarriage, stillbirth, preterm birth and pre-eclampsia, Tommy’s also funds projects that research the effects of lifestyle and well-being on pregnancy and on the later life of the child.
When a baby dies after 24 weeks of gestation it is called a stillbirth. Incredibly, over 3,500 babies are stillborn every year in the UK and many of these deaths remain unexplained. Tommy’s research is dedicated to improving these shocking statistics.
Around 60,000 babies are born prematurely each year in the UK and many suffer lifelong consequences as a result. Preterm birth is the leading cause of neonatal death in the UK.
