How do I ask for donations and sponsorship?

Set up a fundraising page and set a target

Fundraisers often tell us that they find it helpful to set an amount they’d like to raise. Working towards a goal will keep you motivated and may boost the donations you receive. We recommend creating a page on JustGiving and you can find our JustGiving Page here. It is a great way to let people know why you are fundraising for St Peter & St James Hospice and an easy way for you to collect donations. 

Support from your employer

Ask your employer to support you either by making a donation, match funding, or sponsoring you.

Corporate Giving

Promote your event

Let your friends and family know what you are doing and promote your fundraiser on social media. Alternatively, if your workplace has an internal newsletter, ask if you can promote your fundraising, or add a link to your fundraising page into your email signature.

If you’d like to use our logo or some of our hospice photos, or are interested in hospice merchandise, please get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to help.
