Feel good fundraising
Supporting is about how all of us as individuals, taking action on a small scale, can help to bring about huge changes for the better for those who are afflicted by poverty and disease in Africa.
That is why we need as many people as possible to join together with us and help raise funds, which enable our projects to make a lasting difference to communities and families. It’s fundraising with the ultimate feel-good factor.
There are lots of great ways to raise valuable funds. Why not organise an event or get sponsored to do something challenging, difficult or just plain silly?
Join us at an event
Throughout the year we arrange events directly and we always need supporters to take part and volunteers to help on the day.
Take a look at the list of forthcoming events that we are planning or others have made us aware of. If you can’t find an event in your area why not organise one yourself and we’ll list it on our page. Click here for forthcoming events.
Please get in touch if you would like more information about any of the events listed.
Organise an event
Make something happen
Fundraising can be a good excuse to do something you enjoy, something you’ve never done before or something silly and outrageous with like-minded people, and raise awareness of the great work of GAGA at the same time. If your event is public we can list it on our ‘join us at an event’ page. Where possible and appropriate we always try and attend your events to give you that extra support.
The possibilities are endless but here are a few ideas for events you could organise yourself to raise money:
Record attempt Coffee morning Garden open day
Roller-skating derby Garage sale Car boot sale
Dog show Mufti day Cricket match
Concert Party Cake sale
Raise money and and make a difference
Raising sponsorship can be a great way to challenge yourself to achieve something new, reach a personal goal or just have a laugh while drawing attention to the GAGA’s important work.
People will sponsor others for almost endless reasons but here are some ideas you might like to try:
Paragliding Cycling Give up smoking
Staying silent Growing a moustache Shaving a beard
Losing weight Running a marathon Swimming
Singing Triathlon Walking
Collecting sponsorship doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming. You can use social media to tell your friends and family and establish your own unique fundraising page at www.uk.virginmoneygiving.com so they can donate online using all major debit and credit cards as well as PayPal.
Sell on eBay
If you are a keen seller on eBay you can nominate us as a good cause and we will receive a percentage of your sales.
You decide exactly what percentage of your final selling price you'd like to raise for GAGA (from 10-100%). Then, every time you list an item, you’ll get a fee credit on your basic insertion and final value fees equal to the percentage you donate. So if you donate 50% of your selling price to us, eBay will waive 50% of your fees.
Our mission statement and logo will be displayed alongside your listing so, as well as promoting your item and raising money for us, you will also be helping to raise awareness. You can manage your own donation or it can be collected automatically through the PayPal Giving Fund for added convenience.
You can even boost your donation by 25% by adding Gift Aid if you are an eligible UK taxpayer.
