Donations

SACCO is a not-for-profit charity and donations are very important for our survival. No matter how small, donations are always gratefully received to support our events, initiatives, and towards printing costs for Kaleidoscope

Sponsorship

We have a number of sponsors to thank for their support and welcome more sponsors. This list includes Sutton Council, Merton Council, Sutton Courier, The Co-Operative, and the Lottery. Sponsors benefit by sending a clear message to employers, customers and the community about your commitment to social responsibility. It also gives the option to leverage exposure and marketing opportunities by being featured in our publications, flyers and brochures, posters, magazines, and on our website.

Please contact us if you want to make a personal contribution or have any questions. If you want to make a donation for a specific purpose please let us know.
