Volunteering is a sure-fire way to make you feel happier and give something back to our industry. You can help by organising an event, joining our regional committees, signing up to become a member of our board or taking on a fundraising activity – whichever you choose to do you are volunteering and making a difference to our sector!

Join a regional committee

Our Regional Committees organise and host over 43 events throughout the year. From golf days to dinners, and fishing days to glamorous balls they generate a big percentage of EIC annual income. Not only do these events and activities provide much-needed funds, but they also spread the message about the Charity’s ability to assist employees and their families as well as businesses. See our committee charter here.


EIC rely on donations from companies and individuals to help make a huge difference to our sector. If you are a company wanting to make a donation to EIC it is important to note gifts of money to UK charities by companies are made before tax is deducted (i.e. out of gross income or profits) so no Gift Aid declaration is required. Companies can claim tax relief for donations to UK charities as a charge against income in their corporation tax computation. There are also tax effective ways of donating equipment, stock or manpower. For more information about tax when your limited company gives to charity visit
