Entries have opened for Third Sector’s Business Charity Awards 2019, which celebrate the significant contribution made by companies to UK charities and social enterprises.
There are 27 categories, including the new awards for Long-Term Partnership and Short-Term Partnership.
The deadline for entries is 29 January.
Other awards include Outstanding Employee, which will go to someone who has made an exceptional contribution to charity with the support of his or her employer.
The co-chairs of the judging panel for the awards will be Caroline Bishop, global communications director at GSK, and Clodagh Connolly, senior manager at the awards partner organisation LBG, which measures and manages corporate community investment.
A simpler pricing structure has been introduced for 2019. Entries will cost £365 for all types of organisation, a saving of £100 on the previous rate for corporate entries.
LBG members receive a 25 per cent reduction on this fee.
Management Today, Third Sector’s sister publication, will be a media partner for the awards.
The shortlisted organisations will be announced in April and the awards ceremony will take place in central London on 22 May.
Andy Hillier, editor of Third Sector, said: "More and more businesses now realise that supporting charities and local causes not only makes good business sense, but can also bring about social change. The Business Charity Awards provide a unique opportunity for companies to showcase the amazing work they are doing with charities and in communities and recognise the hard work of their employees and customers."
