There are many ways in which you can support your chosen charity, and most, if not all, will be very happy with any time or money that be spared and donated. Whether you choose to go it alone or whether you decide to get a team together or even get your work involved. Holding a sponsored event can be a great way of raising funds for your favourite causes.

If you choose to hold an event and get others involved with it, then it is a good idea to do a bit of brainstorming to make sure that everyone is happy with the task you are all going to be performing, whether it is running, swimming or something else.


You will need to make sure that there are plenty of sponsorship forms. You may find that the charity you are supporting has its own particular one with its header at the top, but if not, designing your own is quite easy. You just need to make sure that you have the correct number of desired fields and that you have all the information that your sponsors are going to need to fill out so that sponsor money can be collected easily when the event has finished.

When dealing with sponsor forms, it is a good idea to give those that want to compete plenty of time ahead of the day to get as many sponsors as they possibly can, including local businesses, in order to reap the most benefit for your charity.

Holding a charity lottery

Holding a charity lottery is another really good option for your favourite charity and can bring in lots of money for your chosen cause. You may feel that this option is a bit daunting. However, there are those that will give you a guiding hand and help you through the task of setting up your lottery.

Charity Lottery Services will not only help you at the very start of your charity lottery journey but will help when it comes to managing it as well as with the big prizes so that your chosen charity gets all the benefits, they can also help with charity raffles, too.

Donating is not just money

You can, of course, donate. By setting up a standing order with your bank, you can make regular payments to your chosen charity, or for that matter, just make a one-off payment.

Donating does not just stop at the money you can give, but it can also cover items that can be sold in the charity shop – if your charity has one locally, or selling your second-hand items online and then donating the profits to your charity.

Or you could donate your time and help out, whether it is at a charity shop or if you are supporting an animal shelter, maybe spend some of your spare time caring for the resident animals, grooming, mucking out, or even playing and exercising them.
