Useful Resources

Below are some downloads you can use to help you with making a donation.

Take a look at our Fundraising A-Z to help inspire your fundraising. Once you have decided what your event is, spreading the word is key to its success. It is a good idea to come up with a timeline for organising and promoting your event. Some of the basics could include:

  • What your event is
  • Date, time and location of your event
  • Where you can buy tickets or find out more information
  • That you are raising money in aid of CLAN
  • Our web address www.clanhouse.org
  • Our registered charity number SC022606

Posters We can provide you with the CLAN logo and standard text for you to use when creating your event posters.

Logo Guidelines The CLAN logo is important to us. If you would like to use it please contact us and we will provide you with an official version of our logo along with our branding guidelines.

Press and Local Media Asking a local radio station or newspaper to cover your event is a great way to let others know what you are doing and why.

Online Promoting your event online is free and can be very effective

  • Send an email to all your contacts.
  • Use social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter for promoting your event and telling your friends about it. Don't forget to ask them to share it too.
  • Create an event page on Facebook and invite all your friends to attend.

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.

Sponsor Forms We can provide a personalised sponsor form for your event or challenge. Simply contact us and we will send one to you.

Online Giving 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 recommend using either JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving.

Gift Aid 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.

Match Giving 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.

Regular Giving You can pledge to make a regular donation (weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly) to CLAN by completing a regular giving form, you can download one from this page.

Tools to help There are a number of items we can provide to help raise awareness and funds for CLAN at your event.

Simply contact us to arrange these, though we do ask that you return items to us as soon as possible after your event.
