Goodwood in the community
Goodwood supports its local community in a number of ways. In addition to the donation of tickets to hundreds of schools, charitable organisations and local fundraising events each year, it also works closely with a number of charities which have a close affiliation with the Estate and its businesses.
Apply to become the next Estate Charity Partner
If you are interested in applying to become Goodwood’s Charity of the Year for 2019/2020, the information below will help you work out if you are eligible and, if so, how and when to register your charity.
What we look for in a charity partnership
Whilst Goodwood attracts visitors from all over the world, it is our local community that is most important to us. We therefore like to support charities that are based, or operate in West Sussex.
We like working with both small and large charities. The key is that there is a committed person from the charity who can work with us to get the most from the partnership and raise as much money as possible. Do you have a member of your team who can tell the on-going story of your charity in a way that will get our 700+ staff engaged and motivated? Before applying do consider whether you have the staff and marketing resources to be able to support the events and staff activities at Goodwood.
Whilst fundraising is a key way we support our Estate Charity of the Year, we also value volunteering opportunities for our staff. Applications from charities who can offer volunteering will be prioritised.
Goodwood is renowned for its creativity and innovation. We like to extend this to how we work with partners. If your charity has any unusual and fun ideas of how to raise funds this will be warmly received.
