How to fundraise for All We Can
Thank you for your interest in raising funds for All We Can. We are really grateful for your support. The money you raise will help people in some of the world’s poorest communities to achieve their potential.
How we can help
Before you get started, download our guide to fundraising, which is full of hints and tips to help you plan your event:
We will do all we can to support you as you fundraise. We offer:
- An All We Can t-shirt to wear at your event
- Sponsorship forms
- Leaflets to give to your sponsors
- Support and advice
Using an All We Can sponsorship form for your event or challenge means your sponsors, if they are taxpayers, can make their pledges worth 25% more with Gift Aid – they just need to tick the box on the form.
Circulate the form among friends and family, and if you’re a part of a church, put a notice in the news sheet and leave a copy of your sponsorship form out for people to sign.
Set up a sponsorship page
You might also like to set up an online sponsorship page – it’s quick and easy and means anyone can sponsor you by credit or debit card. The website sends the money direct to All We Can.
1. Visit MyDonate to set up your page.
2. Choose All We Can at ‘Step 2’ and please give us permission to contact you at Step 4. This means we can send you a sponsorship pack and provide support as you prepare for your event.
3. Share the web address for your page – email your contacts, add it to your email signature, and add a link on any social networking sites you use. Keep it updated with your progress.
Extra tips for fundraising success
Set a target.This will motivate you and encourage others to be generous in their support.
Recruit a team. Can you get others to join you in your challenge? Not only will you raise more money, but training and fundraising will be much more fun.
Be bold. Solicit support from your family, church, workplace, school or any other group you are part of.
Tell and sell. Local papers and radio stations are always looking for good stories. Let them know about your sponsored event in advance, and send the papers a photo afterwards. Make sure you include details of how you can be contacted, and how people can sponsor you.
Host an All We Can open evening. Invite people round or have an open evening at church. We can send you an All We Can video or PowerPoint presentation to show. You could use this opportunity to encourage people to give before the event, or to say thank you to your sponsors afterwards.
Get companies on board. Ask your employer or local businesses if they will match the money that you raise, in exchange for giving them publicity as a sponsor.
