There are lots of ways you can fundraise for George House Trust.  If you plan to raise money online, we're registered with JustGiving and Virgin Money Giving

Bake a Cake

Who doesn’t enjoy cake?  A bake sales and coffee mornings are a great excuse to eat cake AND raise money for a good cause.

 

 

Host a Dinner Party

If you enjoy entertaining friends, why not host a dinner and agree a donation that each guest will make to George House Trust for attending the dinner party?

 

Pubs and Clubs

Pubs and clubs can make their fundraising as simple or extravagant as they want it to be. Previous fundraising efforts have ranged from charging an extra £1 on the door for a particular night, to large scale fundraising with bars in Manchester’s gay village rallying together to raise money over World AIDS Day through the Raising for Red campaign.

Create your own Event

Whatever event you hold, your support will go a long way in helping people affected by HIV.

Fundraising Top Tips

  • Make sure your fundraising page is compelling and explains your motivation.
  • Time your donation request as people are more likely to be generous with their sponsorship after pay day.
  • If you are a UK tax payer, registering for Gift Aid means  that the taxman will add 28p to every pound you raise.
  • Ask close friends and family to donate first as other people may then match their generosity.
  • Tell people what your fundraising target is and what their contribution will help achieve for your charity.
  • Add some perspective around a suggested donation e.g. £10 might mean your supporter giving up a takeaway.
  • Set yourself small weekly fundraising targets rather than thinking about a daunting total target.
  • Get friends and family to spread the word about your fundraising too – they’ll be keen to help you get more sponsors.
  • Mention your fundraising event in your answerphone messages, email signatures, notice boards, anywhere you can!
