Fundraising Resources

Take a look at our fundraising do’s & don’ts to help you with your fundraising event

Dos

  • Do set a target. Having something to aim for will encourage your supporters to help you reach that goal.
  • Do set up a LocalGiving page. Make sure you choose ‘East Kent Mencap’ as your chosen charity.
  • Do spread the word. After you have set up an online giving page, you can share, tweet and email it to friends and family. Don’t forget to tag us @eastkentmencap so we can share your success.
  • Do make use of our materials. We aim to provide you with sponsor forms, t-shirts, collection buckets, stickers and handouts that can help to promote your cause.
  • Do check guidelines for licences. If you are planning fundraisers such as a raffle or a public collection, or are having live music or serving alcohol, find out what precautions you might need to take.

Don'ts

  • Don’t panic. We are here to help you.
  • Don’t go it alone. Get support from your family and friends and make it a date in everyone’s social calendar.
  • Don’t forget to thank people that sponsor you, make donations or volunteer. Include us in an online post so we can thank them too.
  • Don’t overlook health and safety procedures if you're organising a large event or using a venue.
  • Don’t underestimate the difference you are making to the lives of people with a learning disability.
  • Don’t be a stranger. We like to hear about people's fundraising experiences.

We do our best to stretch every pound you raise in supporting the lives of adults & children with learning disabilities in East Kent, so don’t forget to sign up to our mailing list and stay up to date

On Thursday 3rd August, hundreds of people flocked to our one day festival for fun, football and falafel in the sunshine. The free event at Margate Football Club made sure everyone felt included regardless of age or ability during this Summer extravaganza.
