Fundraising in your community

Support Bede, feel great! Whether it’s a dress-up day to donate a pound, a bake sale to raise some dough, a team trek, an office raffle or a ‘nominate your boss’ challenge, there’s plenty of ways to show up and show your support! Fundraising in your own way- and make a big difference Whatever way you’d like to fundraise, we will support you all the way.

Invite your employees to fundraise for us and showcase their creativity in exciting new ways. Why not organise a Bede running team or a lunchtime quiz? Host a cake sale or sweepstake for a sporting event? Would your company consider matched giving on the amount you raise?

There are lots of opportunities for your company to get involved and meet your social responsibility goals at the same time- get in touch for more information – enquiry form

Fundraise with friends for us – your amazing support helps us to make sure more people in our community have opportunities to thrive! Dying your hair, shaving your head, running a relay, baking a mammoth cake, having a dance-along or sing-athon, the list of fun and creative ways you can raise money is almost endless, so use your imagination!

Keep it safe and legal

Your fundraising doesn’t need to be complicated to be a success, but it does need to be fun, safe and legal and the best way to do this is to make sure you plan carefully, ask for advice and give yourself enough time. We’re always here to help!

Where your money goes:

  •  £60 per month provides lunch every week for a year for a volunteer who has learning disabilities.
  • £100 buys materials for a Bede youth club art and craft sessions for a year. These activities allow quieter young people to express themselves.
  • £600 supports a Bede worker to assess the risks facing a client who is experiencing domestic violence. They can then create a safety plan together.
