Fundraising

Whether you're running a marathon, doing a sky-dive, holding an office dress-up day, or simply selling cakes in a carnival, every penny you raise will help to change the lives of vulnerable children and families.

There's no event too big or too small, so whatever you are thinking of doing, get in contact with us for some advice and support.

To get you started here are some of our top tips

 Decide what you want to do, pick something fun that you’ll enjoy. 

 See if your employer will give you matched funding for what you raise – it can double your money!

 Consider the details…find your ultimate venue, choose a date and work out your budget.

 Ask for charity rates from suppliers and for donations or sponsorship from companies – you’ll be amazed at how generous people can be!

 Ask your friends, family and colleagues to support or sponsor you, and ask them to ask their friends.

 Set up your personalised donations page via JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving.  Make sure you have downloaded a sponsorship form and don’t forget about Gift Aid.

 Promote your event wherever you can, social media can be particularly successful and we can also help to promote your event on Facebook, twitter and on our website.

 Contact your local press/radio/TV and tell them what you’re doing – we can help you write a press release if you would like.

 Don’t forget to ensure you are keeping it safe and legal.

 Have fun and enjoy your event!

You can pay your money in by several different methods; by cheque, cash or directly into our bank account, whichever is easier for you. Please ensure cheques are made payable to 'Carmarthenshire Youth & Children's Association'.
