Got a great idea for a fundraiser that could support us to help more people? Then we would love to hear from you!

We are very keen to support groups or individuals who would like to organise any type of event. It’s a great excuse to bring together family and friends while making a difference to those who need it most.

Step 1: Decide on your event

Have a think about what kind of event you fancy doing. Would you like to take on a solo challenge or get others involved to make it more of a group effort?

Step 2: Tell us about it

We would love to support you to make your event a great success. Drop us a line and tell us your plans. We can help if you’re still not sure how to go about things.

Step 3: Get hold of some useful materials

Over on our resources for fundraisers page you will find some useful materials for your event.

Step 4: Work with us to tell others about it

We can help spread the word about your event with our virtual megaphone across our website, social media and press. Once we have all the details, our fundraising and marketing team will assist you to raise as much money as possible.

You can host your fundraising online by setting up a page for your event on JustGiving. Donations will be processed by JustGiving and passed on to us. They will also claim gift aid on our behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

Please don’t hesitate to contact our fundraising team on 01225 824103 or via fundraising@designability.org.uk if you’d like any images or content for your page, or if you need help setting it up.

If you would also like to fundraise offline, then we can supply you with some handy sponsorship forms.
