Let’s delve into the various ways small businesses can support Active Fusion: 


Monthly Corporate Donors 

Monthly donors provide a steady and predictable stream of income for Active Fusion. Take a cue from FMJ Plastering, a shining example of steadfast support who has been making monthly donations to Active Fusion for a number of years. By making regular contributions, businesses not only demonstrate long-term commitment but also benefit from sustained brand promotion and exposure.  

Regular Fundraising Days 

Partnering with Active Fusion for fundraising events, like the ‘Fish Friday’ collaboration with Fish Bits, provides businesses with an opportunity to engage employees and customers in meaningful philanthropy while fostering a sense of purpose. Regular fundraising efforts demonstrate a long-term commitment to the charity, providing consistent support that enables Active Fusion to plan and execute its programs effectively. Regularly fundraising for Active Fusion can enhance a business’s reputation and brand image, showcasing its commitment to social responsibility, community engagement, and making a positive difference in the world. 

One-off Business Donations 

Whether it’s a one-time contribution or support for specific campaigns, businesses like Oliver King Consulting, Elite Accountancy Services, and Little Fire Digital exemplify the spirit of generosity. Their actions underscore the importance of collective efforts in driving positive change. One-off donations provide immediate financial support, enabling Active Fusion to address urgent needs, fund specific projects, or respond to unforeseen crises promptly. Sam Sargent, Founder of Oliver King Consultancy commented, Active Fusion’s values mirror Oliver King Consulting’s, in making a difference to those in need in the local community. Since working with Active Fusion, we have seen the great work that their coaches do, especially since we have supported with recruiting. It has been a pleasure learning more about who Active Fusion are and the kind of people they are looking for to join their team!” 

Percentage-of-Sales Donations 

A percentage of sales donation is a philanthropic initiative where a business commits to donating a portion of its sales revenue. Instead of making a fixed monetary contribution, the business pledges to donate a specified percentage of its total sales, typically within a defined timeframe. A great example of this was Serenity Zen‘s initiative to donate a portion of sales during the festive period in 2022 which showcased the power of integrating philanthropy into business operations. Such initiatives not only benefit Active Fusion but also resonate with customers who value socially responsible brands. Jo from Serenity Zen added, Serenity Zen supports the work that Active Fusion does with children. We both believe in the healthy body, healthy mind philosophy. It’s fantastic to help children get on the right path at an early age, that will give them a great start in life and a foundation that will support them in adult life too.” 

Services in Kind Donations 

This type of donation refers to a contribution of goods or services instead of cash. Stage Digital has been a steadfast supporter of Active Fusion, demonstrating their commitment to the charity’s mission through generous donations of services in kind. Specifically, Stage Digital has been instrumental in providing invaluable Search Engine Optimisation and Public Relations advice and assistance to the charity. For businesses, donating services or goods in-kind can be a cost-effective way to support charitable causes. Instead of donating cash, which may strain budgets, businesses can contribute resources they already possess, such as expertise, products, or professional services. 


Supporting Active Fusion isn’t just about giving back; it’s about investing in the future, nurturing potential, and creating pathways for our future generations. For small businesses looking to make a tangible difference in their communities, partnering with Active Fusion is not just an opportunity – it’s a responsibility.
