Fundraising

Fundraising to help Child of Hope provide a hope and future for kids in Uganda just couldn’t be easier!

People have climbed mountains, cycled over Welsh hills, held a Zumbathon, run marathons… OK none of those sound easy, but these do... some people sold unwanted items, did a cake sale, held a coffee morning, had a birthday party, or simply set up makeapage_purple.gifMyDonate or JustGiving page and invited their friends and family to donate… all kinds of things. It doesn’t have to be a huge commitment. If you’ve got an idea, let us know and we can help you with some resources.

Fundraising is all about asking people for support; your family, work colleagues and friends can make your fundraising easy and successful. Keep it interesting and fun, and people will want to help you. Sometimes, employers will match the amount you raise... it's worth asking!

Gift Aid

With Gift Aid, every £1 you give attracts an extra 25p from the government (if your donor is a UK taxpayer). But you don’t have to worry about how to do it – our online payment methods cover all that, as does MyDonate and JustGiving, and so do our sponsorship forms. With the correct forms, you can now even help us claim Gift Aid on cash collections. For more information, please e-mail us.
