As a charity we receive no government funding and rely on the generosity of local people and businesses. We continue to strive to raise funds with a variety of activities and local fund-raising events. We need your support.
There are several ways that you can get involved to support and help raise money for Crisis Aid. Could you host your own fundraising event for Crisis Aid?
There are many ways your community can get involved in our work, for example you could:
• Hold a car boot sale, coffee morning or a raffle.
• Organise a collection at a religious service.
• Choose us as your charity of the year.
All groups are welcome to get involved – local societies, Scouts, Brownie and Guide groups, youth clubs – and we would be happy to discuss ideas with you!
There are a huge number of physical challenges that you can take part in on behalf of Crisis Aid. Whether you take one of our places in the London Marathon or British 10K, or you want to do your own challenge independently, we can advise and support you. If you are thinking of taking on a challenge, or want to apply for a Crisis Aid place in the Marathon or 10k please contact us on [email protected]
3.ORGANISE AN EVENT
Whether it is a night out or a night in, a coffee morning or a charity football match, a bake sale or a head shave; with a bit of time and a supportive group of friends, you could be raising valuable funds for our work and having lots of fun! Recent events held on our behalf have included a sponsored assault course, Saturday night take away and a charity dinner.
Next time you are celebrating a special occasion, why not ask for donations instead of unwanted gifts. We will happily send thank you letters to all your donors, and what’s more, we can claim Gift Aid on donations and receive an extra 25%.
Getting your pupils involved in fundraising is a great way to teach them about less fortunate children around the world. Teaching about our work can be done as a case study for geography or science classes, or used to teach about the history and culture of other countries. Please do get in touch to find out more about what we do and how you can incorporate this into the syllabus.
Why not nominate Crisis Aid as your school’s charity for the year? Perhaps you could organise an event such as a fancy dress day, fun run, cake stall, treasure hunt or bring and buy sale.
