Corporate Fundraising

There are many ways companies can support the Mito Foundation and help find a cure for mito.

Sponsorship, workplace giving, cause related marketing, supporting Mito Foundation centric events such as Stay in Bed Day or The Bloody Long Walk, providing volunteer opportunities to staff and offering services or products pro bono are all great ways of demonstrating your corporate social responsibility.

Below are some ideas of how your company can show their support for the Mito Foundation. If you have any questions or ideas about how we could work together please contact Caroline Christensen on (02) 8011 4113 or


The Mito Foundation can work with your company to find a project or specific area of our work to support with a donation or grant. We will provide you with regular updates and can include your logo on our website as a key donor.

The Mito Foundation has a range of sponsorship opportunities that can be tailored to your business.  Whether sponsoring the Mito Foundation or focusing on a specific campaign or event, such as Stay in Bed Day or The Bloody Long Walk, we can work with you to ensure your core branding requirements are met.


Workplace giving is a convenient, easy way for your staff to give.  Employees simply nominate an amount per month using their pre-tax salary, avoiding the hassle of claiming tax back.  Run through payroll, it is an easy system to set up and maintain.  Your company can demonstrate its CSR by matching donations (up to a specified amount).

Does your company Match Fund? Ask your HR department if your company take part in matched giving.  It can be used to support and enhance any fundraising that you or your company undertakes. Funds raised by employees can be matched by the company at a pre-agreed dollar or percentage amount.


Cause Related Marketing (CRM) is a great way to demonstrate to your customers your company’s corporate social responsibility. Using our logo and short blurb on a specific item, tell your customers that a donation will be made for every item/service sold. An American study found that 80% of consumers were likely to switch brands, about equal in price and quality, to one that supports a cause1 – now that’s a compelling reason to initiate a CRM campaign!

Employee fundraising could range from employee initiated fundraisers to participation in Mito Foundation events such as The Bloody Long Walk and Stay in Bed Day. The Bloody Long Walk is a great team building event and we have special benefits for corporate teams. Enter a number of teams and create some healthy competition between departments. Stay in Bed Day is an easy and fun way of getting whole teams involved as they get sponsored to wear their PJs to work.
