[quote=Alexlebrit;176471]It depends what type of sponsorship you're looking for, you've mentioned two types here.
- Charitable fundraising
- Sponsorship to cover the cost of your trip
Ok, starting with:
depending on where you live, you could go to a site like Justgiving.com and pick a charity already on it which is close to your heart, and then fill out the forms and voila, you have an online fund-raising page. Then contact the charity itself, even if they're on justgiving, it's good to make contact, if they're not it's essential, charities have their good name to protect, and while a wodge of cash is nice, they like to give the right image too. They might also have people who know about fundraising and might be able to give/loan you some materials (leaflets, balloons, collecting tins, t-shirts etc) to help.
Then you'll just need to tell as many people as possible about this, start with your local media (newspaper, radio, tv and work up, also try any specialist magazines). Tell your mates, get them to tell their mates, add the site as an annoying signature on all your e-mails, join Facebook and invite people in, all that type of thing, none of it's hard and it doesn't need a lot of work.
Hallo everyone, i am new here.
I dont understund how the fundraising for a charity works.
You build the page to raise money for the charity, or for yourself in the name of the charity?
