Organise A Fundraising Event On Our Behalf

Below you we have put together a quick guide that will help you if you wish to set up a fundraising event on our behalf. If there are any further matters you would like to discuss with us prior, during, or after your fundraising event you can contact our office on 01259213453 or email homestart@hsclacks.co.uk.

Set The Date

Pick a date that will get you a good turn out if you’re hosting an event. You want to give yourself time to prepare for and reach your goal.

 

Also, it helps to set a target for when you want to have all your sponsor money collected by. This is helpful for collecting any outstanding sponsorship donations. 

Shout About It

Once you have picked your event it is time for the next step: getting the word out.

You can start by encouraging your family and friends to sponsor you – this helps you to get the ball rolling! You can also promote your plans for holding a fundraising event on our behalf on your social media. Giving posters & sponsor forms to local schools, shops, and churches is another great way to get the word out.

Tell people about all about your plan and don’t be afraid to ask people to donate towards raffles!

Play It Safe

Fundraising is great fun to plan but you should ensure you are clued up when it comes to any health and safety, food hygiene and/or any legalities with raffles and public collections. Head over to the Home-Start UK website for further information.

Submit The Money You Raised

You can submit your sponsorship money in 4 ways:

Direct Donation  – The easiest way to send us the may you have raised on our behalf is to use our Direct Donation function on the Make A Direkt Donation page here on our website. We use PayPal for this service, it’s an easy and most importantly safe way for you to submit your sponsorship money to us.

Online Sponsorship – Online sponsoring sites like JustGiving and Virgin Money Giving will send the money you raise to us so you don’t have to worry about it. However, please check as it will be different for every site!

Cheque made payable to ”Home-Start Clackmannanshire”. This can be delivered (we would love to thank you in person for your wonderful efforts!) or posted to our office address.

Bank Transfer – It’s safer to put all your sponsorship money into your bank account and transfer it to us. This way it minimalizes the risk of money becoming lost in transit. Contact our office on 01259213453 or email homestart@hsclacks.co.uk for more details.
