Fundraising for WM

We don't employ fundraisers like the larger charities, but we will give you all the help we can to develop your ideas, provide high resolution logos for printing T-shirts and point you towards the fund raising pages on Just Giving and Virgin Money Giving, where you can see some of the good ideas.   We also support text giving campaigns and BT Mydonate.

Our suggestions are to set up a giving page with a photo and interesting story early on (so you can use social media and don't have to handle cash), then send a release to you local paper with the photo, the heart rending story and the giving page web address.  We can publicise it in our newsletter to 800+ in the WM community and on the website. Finally- don't underestimate your target - even the simplest 10K run can raise over £4,000!

If you intend to claim through us a welcome 25% extra Gift Aid on donations during an event please ask us first - the rules are quite complex, particularly for sales and auctions. Corporate events cannot reclaim Gift Aid, but can usually set charity donations against their Corporation Tax bill.  
Modest cash donations at events (i.e. a bucket collection) can be used to generate extra Gift Aid without having to supply names and addresses for HMRC, as you have to do with all others types of Gift Aid reclaim. 

Here are a few recent examples!
