Sponsorship opportunities

Businesses can support the work of The Royal Countryside Fund through sponsorship of our programmes, initiatives and events. This is a great way to raise awareness of our partnership and highlight your brand’s commitment to charity and creating a real future for rural Britain.

To find out more about any of these opportunities, or to discuss a bespoke partnership, please contact our Corporate Partnerships Manager, Emily.

  1. Joint Grant Programmes

    Through a partnership with the RCF, businesses can develop a bespoke grant programme to support rural or farming community-led projects across the UK.

  2. Event sponsorship

    Businesses can choose to sponsor our events, which is a great way to draw attention to the partnership and connect with visitors and friends of the RCF. If you’d like to know more about our summer programme of events, or have a suggestion for a new event, please get in touch.

  3. Programme sponsorship

    There are opportunities for businesses to sponsor any of our key programmes. This includes support of The Farm Resilience Programme, our flagship initiative that comprises free business skills training for family farms. Support of the programme is a fantastic way for organisations to directly show their commitment to the farming community.

Morrisons has been a long term supporter of The Farm Resilience Programme

Derek Clarke is a farmer in the Ribble Valley in Lancashire, and joined a Morrisons-sponsored group of the FRP in 2019. Derek said: “The Farm Resilience Programme allows farmers to be open and honest with others, which doesn’t happen very often in this industry. It’s a great way for people to come together, to put your head above the parapet and own how well your business is doing, to talk things through with others in a similar situation and with the expertise of the consultants. It’s excellent to see Morrisons, such a large corporation, supporting small family farms.”
