Once you have decided what event or challenge you are going to do, the next step is encouraging people to donate and it is now easier than ever.
Approach your family, friends and colleagues and you will be surprised how quickly the donations start coming in.
We can provide a personalised sponsor form for your event or challenge. Simply contact us and we will send one to you.
Online giving is now more popular than ever. It is quick and easy to set up, simply go to the website and follow the step by step guide. You can then send your link to family, friends and colleagues through social media and email. We reccommend using either JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving.
Gift Aid is a government scheme which enables charities to reclaim the tax on their donations. By asking people to gift aid their donations we can claim an extra 25p for every pound from HM Revenue & Customs, at no extra cost to you or your supporters (please note you must be a UK tax payer to claim Gift Aid). Simply follow the instructions on your sponsor form or if using online giving, the website will sort this for you. If making a personal donation you can also claim Gift Aid, simply complete the form which can be downloaded from this page.
Some companies will pledge to match whatever monies you raise and donate it to the cause. We are happy to help fill in any forms that are required.
You can pledge to make a regular donation to CLAN by completing a standing order form, you can download one from this page.
