Charities and non-profit organisations work tirelessly to support societal demographics, raise awareness for social issues, or provide economic relief to an oppressed minority group. Some charities conduct research into the background and root of modern-day issues, some fund initiatives and programmes to provide aid packages of food, clothing, or medicine where they’re needed most, and some give funding directly to those who need it. Many of us have a chosen or favourite charity which supports a cause close to our heart or one that we feel requires attention the most, and we donate to those organisations on a weekly, monthly, or annual basis to support their activities. But there are plenty of other ways to fundraise for your favourite charity. So if you feel like doing an extra bit to support your chosen non-profit, check on this list below for a breakdown of the most common fundraising options for supporting a charity organisation!
One of the easiest and most accessible ways to help a charity’s fundraising efforts is simply to raise awareness of the company itself and the causes it supports! You can do this via word of mouth, by sharing their posts on social media, or by arranging awareness campaigns either by phone, online, or door-to-door.
Hold an event
A very common method of fundraising is to host an event to both boost awareness and to raise money on tickets or product sales. From bake sales hosted by schools for local charities to grand balls attended by the rich and famous, hosting an event can give your chosen charity a huge boost in both funding and public knowledge.
Offer your services
A unique way to aid a charity in fundraising is to offer your specific services for free. This will save the charity money which they can then reallocate to more active use for the cause! Whether you can offer a specialised service like marketing, videography, or web design, use your resources to manage administrative functions for the charity, or simply just volunteer your own time to help out, this can be an easy way of supporting the organisation. Speed of Sight is lucky to have multiple partners who offer their services to us, such as SEO Enterprise managing our online visibility, and our circuit tracks in Wigan, Teesside and Llandow allowing us use of their tracks! There are so many ways to get involved with your favourite charity to aid in their fundraising efforts. If you’d like to support Speed of Sight in any of these ways, get in touch today to join us in our mission to change the lives of blind and disabled people!
