Fundraising Tips

Fundraising Tips

Follow our useful tips on how to get started with fundraising and make your event to support the work we do a memorable one and support.

Step 1: Decide on a fundraising event

From bake sales to bungee jumps and dress up days there are endless ways to raise funds for
us.

You’ll find a full list of things you could do in our fundraising kit.

Step 2: Shout about it

To really make your event a success, it’s a good idea to advertise it to as many people as possible. So tell friends and family, advertise it at work, school or on local notice boards and of course, share in on social media like Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat.

We can help too – make sure you mention us (@YoungMindsUK) on Twitter or link to our Facebook page.

You can also set up a page with Virgin Money Giving – it’s a great way to tell your story, share photos and provide your supporters with a link so they can donate online.

Step 3: On the day

With all the planning done, the only thing left is to enjoy the day!

Make sure to take plenty of photos and post them on social media – it may help bring in a few extra donations and our social media team might be able to help by sharing and retweeting them too.

Step 4. Donating the funds you raise

After your fundraising event, there are a number of different ways you can donate the money you raised:

By credit/debit card
Call us on 0207 089 5050 or pay your donation online <youngminds.org.uk/donate

By bank transfer
Please use your name as the reference and transfer it to:
CAF Bank Ltd
Sort code: 40-52-40
Account number: 00002523

By cheque
Make your cheque payable to YoungMinds and post it to:
YoungMinds
Suite 11, Baden Place
Crosby Row
London
SE1 1YW

If you’ve set up a Virgin Money Giving page, there’s nothing more you need to do – your supporters pay their donation online and Virgin Money sends it to us once your event is finished.

The amount of times I’d tried to break out of this shell, talk about ‘I’m feeling a bit down’, ‘I’m feeling a bit scared’, I couldn’t do it. And now I can do it openly.
