There are various different ways to provide corporate support to the NGS, but however it is done it makes a vital contribution to the amounts of money the charity is able to donate annually to its nursing and caring beneficiaries.
The most substantial support is currently provided by the charity’s long-standing Core Sponsor, Investec Wealth & Investment. Currently we also have supportive partnerships with Griffin Glasshouses, The Posh Shed Company, Twool, Woodmansterne Cards.
There are other options to support the NGS with direct funding or, as has often been done successfully, with licensing agreements involving the sale of products carrying the NGS logo and paying the NGS a royalty percentage on all sales of such products.
Companies and businesses can also support the NGS with different types of matched funding, or contribution to a specific garden opening. This can range from formal matched funding support for an employee or former employee who is opening their garden or taking part in an open garden event; to a financial donation for a specific open garden event by a local company or business in return for some recognition at the event.

Currently the NGS’s target is for 80p in every £1 raised at garden openings to be donated directly to the charity’s beneficiaries. Corporate support for the charity can help this ratio improve. For full details of how to support the NGS please contact the Chief Executive, George Plumptre.
