Fundraising checklist

Some points to tick off your list!

Use your imagination…

It doesn’t have to be big, clever or a brand-new idea, it just needs to raise money and be fun for you and anyone else taking part!

How much do you want to raise?

Set a target (most people beat their original estimates!).

Break it down!

It takes just 10 of your friends to donate £10 each for you to collect £100 in sponsorship (or even more if they tick the Gift Aid box!). Put your most generous supporter first on a sponsorship form and others will follow!

Who do you know?

Make a list of your friends, family, work colleagues and neighbours. Then think about where these people work and who they know. The list will be really helpful for promoting your event.

Shout as loud as you can!

Don’t be shy! Contact your local newspaper and radio stations and tell them about what you’re doing and why and get your events listed in as many ‘what’s on’ guides as possible.

Look at our guide to online fundraising for how to spread the word electronically.

It’s not all work, work, work …

Ask your employer if they would like to support you. They may run a matched giving scheme where the more you raise the more they give, or perhaps they could donate goods for raffles, promote your event or let you use their premises.
