We are in constant need of donations that will allow us to continue caring for animals. It costs an incredible £365,000 a year to run the centre; that’s £1,000 per day! Every single penny really does count and you could be the person, or the group, who helps us to secure our future and help save our British wildlife.
There are some great ways to raise money, whether at home or in your school or workplace. If you are getting sponsored then make sure that you give people the chance to ‘Gift Aid’ their donation. That way, more money comes to Wildlife Aid, rather than to the Chancellor!
We are here to support you in any way that we can and if you contact us to say what your event is, we will happily provide you with official, branded sponsorship forms.
For further information, help with fundraising, or to request sponsorship forms, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Host an event!
How about having a car boot sale or auctioning just about anything you no longer want on eBay? Or what about a lunch or dinner at a local pub or restaurant? It doesn’t have to be grand. You could hold a pub quiz and sell tickets or charge for entries, making it clear that this is a fundraiser in aid of the Wildlife Aid Foundation.
Get paid for your time!
Charge a small fee and send the proceeds to the Wildlife Aid Foundation. You could walk your neighbors’ dogs, do their ironing or cut their lawns . Or how about charging a small fee to be the designated taxi-driver for your group on a night out?
Commemorate an occasion
Celebrate your birthday, wedding, Christmas or any other special occasion by asking for gifts to help the Wildlife Aid Foundation, instead of a present for yourself. If you are having a party we can send you printed literature so that your event can still be just as special and your guests can learn all about the work that we do at the same time.
Have fun at work!
Keep a Wildlife Aid collection tin in your reception of staff canteen (contact us if you would like one of these). Get your own back on colleagues by asking them to make a donation to a swear box, or get sponsored to be the office tea maker all week.
Have fun at school!
Check with your teacher and guardian whether you can hold an event to raise funds for wildlife and if they say yes, get your class, or even your whole school involved! Everyone could make a donation to wear fancy dress for a day, or you could have a British wildlife themed quiz. Perhaps you could even hold a sponsored silence – I’m sure your teachers would donate extra for that!
Collect your loose change!
Gather all those annoying coins in a jam jar, and when it’s full, cash them in and send us a cheque to help our wildlife
Keep your old printer cartridges and mobile phones, and ask others to donate theirs to you. Then cash them in and send us a cheque! It’s great for the environment, and great for our wildlife too.
