Through a partnership with the Trust, your organisation can help us to continue our work supporting thousands of Gurkha veterans and widows in Nepal, who would otherwise live their last days in poverty and ill health.
Why support the GWT?
There are many motivating factors as to why people want to partner with us. You might have a particular affinity with Nepal or a particular association with the Gurkhas. Perhaps, like many companies, you employ ex-Gurkhas or have served alongside them. Or maybe you’d just like to give something back for their incredible military service over the past 200 years.
You may also like to support Gurkha communities in Nepal, one of the poorest countries in the world, providing them with clean water, medical aid, new schools and assistance when disaster strikes, such as the devastating 2015 earthquakes.
Ways To Get Involved
Enter a corporate team into Trailwalker, our biggest fundraising event, which gives participants the opportunity to form a team of four members who will race against teams from the Brigade of Gurkhas in one of the country’s most challenging events.
There are many other challenges that also provide opportunities for employees to engage in fundraising and show their grit and determination, such as Tough Mudder, the London Marathon or Prudential Bike Ride.
Holding an event
Holding a series of fundraising events for employees, customers and suppliers can be an excellent way to raise funds, involve employees, and generate positive PR. Whether it is a curry lunch or a charity ball, our in-house Events Manager can guide you through the process.
Employees appreciate the opportunity to give through this simple and tax-efficient process where donations are taken from your employees’ pay before tax. It also entitles you to use the Payroll Giving Quality Mark.
Provision of Pro Bono Advice
Our work in Nepal has expanded since the 2015 Nepal earthquakes, and there is potential to involve your staff in the development of exciting new projects in future We would also welcome one day skills sharing from members of your professional in house teams such as marketing and communications, events, HR and finance.
Sponsor A Building Project
Each year the Trust commits to building new schools, school extensions, toilet blocks, water projects and community centres in Gurkha communities across Nepal. It can be really motivating to fundraise for one of these projects as it is so tangible and we can provide you with live updates as the build progresses.
