Our lifesaving work wouldn't be possible without the generous support of our corporate partners.

Working in partnership is critical to helping us do what we do. Without our partners, the lives of far more people would be at risk. At the RNLI, we aim to save everyone, and we do all that we can to prevent drowning. But we can't do this by ourselves.

We need the support of amazing partners and businesses like you to help us achieve our vision and ensure no one has to experience the tragedy of losing someone through drowning.

As a partner of the RNLI, you will help us save lives in the communities that are home to your customers and staff. You become a lifesaver too.

Ways we can work together

Our award-winning team will work with you to develop an inspiring and successful partnership. We will provide you with dedicated support, collaborating with teams across the RNLI, to ensure professional and creative delivery of the partnership objectives.

At the RNLI, we work to ensure our amazing partners play their part in saving lives, whilst also ensuring our relationships deliver critical business benefits to them. 

Our corporate partnerships include a wide range of activity such as:

  • Charity of the Year - employee and customer fundraising
  • Licensing
  • Sponsorship
  • Cause-related marketing campaigns
  • Brand marketing

Your funding can be targeted to a certain area of our work, whether that’s local lifeboat stations close to your communities, or an area of our work that is relevant to your business and customer base.

Whether you are focused on business objectives or looking to support the RNLI from a purely philanthropic perspective, we are ready to share the passion and values of the RNLI with you, your staff and anyone who comes into contact with your business.

Why partner with us?

We work together with our national partners to raise vital funds and to help improve safety on and beside the water. Our partnerships come in all shapes and sizes, from licensing activity and targeted campaigns to long-standing relationships with companies like Helly Hansen, Fred.Olsen Cruise Lines Cruises and Haven.
