Thank you so much for deciding to organise a fundraising activity in aid of NICHS. Please follow these steps to turn your fundraising idea into reality.
Approach companies! Ask local businesses for support. As well as a monetary donation you could ask them to donate a raffle prize or provide a resource you need. Offer to mention them in any local media articles you have planned.
Aim to raise at least three times as much as you spend. List all your costs and ask for a charity discount or a donation of goods from all your suppliers.
Look at ways you can maximise the money you raise, such as holding a raffle at your activity or asking your employer to match your fundraising total.
Don’t be afraid to ask friends, family, and colleagues to help you. Use people’s skills (eg if you know someone who is great with social media ask them to help publicise your activity).
Tell everyone why you are fundraising and about the great work NICHS carries out in northern Ireland. Use blogs, social media and anything else you can think of.
Don’t forget to set up and add your JustGiving page and address to your materials!
