Corporate membership connects you to the world of charity retail by providing access to around 390 charity retail operations. Our charity members range from the largest national charities to locally-based charities and hospices, between them operating around 8,900 shops.
Becoming a corporate member demonstrates your support for charity retailers, and provides your company with unrivalled access to promotion of your products and services. Benefits include:
All corporate members are listed in our business directory. A listing consists of a company description, contact details and your company logo. The directory has always been a very popular page on our website as a one stop shop to cover the range of product and service needs. You can enhance your entry with links.
Charity Retail Conference, Exhibition and Awards
The annual Charity Retail Conference is an excellent opportunity for your business to reach a market with a combined annual turnover of over £1.3bn in the most effective way. Corporate membership offers your business preferential rates and priority booking to sponsor and exhibit at the event.
There are very few stands left for this year’s event – please contact Susan Meredith on 020 7697 4080 with enquiries.
We organise a number of events throughout the year covering a variety of topics. Networking meetings, interest groups and other seminars provide sponsorship, speaking and exhibition opportunities for our corporate members. Our events are a great way to engage with charity retailers of all sizes, especially as now Corporate Members can send one delegate free of charge (non-exhibiting).
Charity Retail News
Every week, corporate members receive Charity Retail News – our round-up of sector news and the current policy work that we are engaged in. You can contribute by writing your own Welcome article upon joining – and sometime during your 12 months submit a guest blog to us for inclusion. You will also receive your own Corporate Members Updates with all the latest opportunities specific to your membership.
Advertising and marketing
Our website, reports and other publications provide a valuable source of information for charity members, other charities, the media and the wider stakeholder community. Supporting this output through sponsorship is an excellent way to show your expertise to the sector in areas that align directly with your objectives and target markets.
The annual fee for corporate membership is £775 + VAT
You can join at any time of the year.
