Becoming a partner

Apart from modest grants, HLA relies on individual donations, and primarily on the extensive volunteering of a few key people.

We need to raise sufficient annual funds to allow for two part-time staff members, to devise and oversee our strategic development and to implement a range of activities, including regular news, adding to our Hum-Log Knowledge Portal, running training workshops and networking events.

How will you benefit from partnering with us?

Corporate partnership would:

  • Demonstrate a measurable commitment to corporate social responsibility
  • Improve your public profile and differentiate your brand
  • Increase customer loyalty and sales
  • Achieve high staff morale, motivation and pride in your company
  • Make a real difference to humanitarian logistics professionals and those they help.

The benefits gained and their duration would depend on the level of contribution, to be reached via agreement with HLA’s Chief Executive, George Fenton. For an outline of available opportunities, please see the attached list.
