As a Team Army/Team Ethos sponsor, private sector companies have the choice to sponsor sports, make a corporate donation or attend one of the many sports events.
All funds raised through the Team Army/Team Ethos brands are transferred to the Team Army Sports Foundation. The Foundation is governed by a dedicated board of trustees which includes several senior officers and industry representatives. Your investment becomes part of a fund which is used by the Trustees to make grants to a range of sports both major and minor, to cover their annual needs. The fund is also used to make grants to grassroots activity as well as groups that provide sporting opportunities for wounded and injured servicemen. The chairman of the trustees is Major General Paul Jaques. The Patron of the charity is General Sir Peter Wall.
Compliance and Assurance
The scheme is endorsed and regularly scrutinised by the MoD to ensure continued policy compliance. We provide all the necessary safeguards to ensure that both sports and sponsors comply with the increasingly regulated landscape including the 2010 UK Bribery and Corruption Act, MoD compliance and assurance, legal incorporation, charitable status and sports officials’ personal liability. We also meet the requirements of the US Foreign & Corrupt Practices Act.
Ethos Fundraising Ltd trades as Team Army & Team Ethos. It acts as the trading vehicle for the charity and conducts all fundraising activities. Ethos receives a small overhead to provide membership services to its clients. Ethos is an institutional member of the Institute of Fundraising.
“Working through Team Army has provided all the necessary safeguards and assurance to satisfy our internal regulations on corporate sponsorship and entertaining.”
