Every month we provide space free of charge for local charities and other not-for-profit groups, large or small, to use the deep and wide readership reach that we have built up over the years, to publicise themselves to the local community.
This is an important element of Konect, one of our main editorial pillars, and are always happy to hear from organisations who feel they would benefit from this.
We want to help charities who are doing essential work to make lives better in our local community. We are inspired by the care, energy, desire to improve lives and the resourcefulness of people we see doing fantastic work and we want to play our part by supporting them with what we do best - writing it up and spreading the word!
See below for more information on how we can support you:
Charity of the Month feature
This is one of our main editorial pillars, we love doing the Charity of the Month features.
You need to be a "home-grown" charity based in West Lothian or West Edinburgh; or live within our readership area and work/volunteer with a local branch of a national charity delivering services in this area.
One of our writers will arrange to come and see you (or sometimes over the phone), find out about your organisation and what you want out of the feature, then write it up. You always get a chance to see the copy before it is printed.
There is usually a wee waiting list, so please get in touch so we can schedule you in at the best time for your organisation, or to fit in with a campaign you're running, or just as soon as possible.
Other ways to be included
We offer charity discounts on normal display adverts if there is not a Charity of the Month slot available for you.
Always feel free to send in your posters/flyers (digital versions only please) and if we have space before deadline we will slot things in for you. Space can only be guaranteed by making a (charity discounted) booking
Deliver Konect & raise funds for your charity
Delivering Konect door to door in your area could be a great way to raise funds for charity. For registered charities only, we can pay directly into the charity bank account. You need to commit to delivering at least 6 times.
It's definitely an option if running a marathon or climbing a mountain is not for you....and we're delighted when the money goes to local causes.
