If you would like to help raise money for the animals of Valle Verde we would be absolutely delighted to hear from you and to offer any support that we can. Here are some fundraising ideas to get you inspired.
Organise a sponsored event
- Extreme sports – abseil, skydive, BASE jump, bungee jump
- Crazy ideas – haircut/dye, baked bean bath, custard boots
- Activities – bike, run, swim, walk, climb
- Give something up – sponsored fast, or give up smoking, coffee, chocolate, TV…
How to collect donations for sponsored events
As well and making cash collections, there are various resources available for collection of sponsorship such as Just Giving. This is a well recognised site, which adds a certain legitimacy to your endeavour, and makes it easy for sponsors to donate online from by credit or debit card.
You can also raise quite a lot of money by soliciting donations in person or on the phone. If you are doing some kind of sport or activity don’t forget to ask a trusted friend to be on hand to collect donations on the day.
Organise a bake or craft sale or sell your services
Bake and craft sales are a very popular for fund raising and can be run on a regular and seasonal basis.
You might also include a raffle at your sale. If you don’t have the cake baking or crafting skills you can always offer your services for donations instead. You could even get the whole family or your street involved in the effort.
Here are just a few ideas for services you could offer to people who would like to support a good cause.
- Lawn mowing
- Elder care
- Errands and odd jobs
- Car washing
Please do get in touch if you are planning a fund raising or sponsored event and we can send you full details about what we do here at Valle Verde Animal Rescue to help you in your effort. We will do whatever we can to help you promote your event on social media and we would love to share any stories or photos that you provide.
Finally, after collecting your sponsorships and donations you can make your donation to Valle Verde Animal Rescue here.
