Fundraise for us - DMWS

Getting started Toolkit

  1. Create a fundraising webpage for your fundraiser on Virgin Money Giving linked to our own DMWS  VirginMoneyGiving page. Personalising your fundraising page can have a huge impact on your sponsorship total as it allows people to feel more connected to your cause.
  2. For fundraising events and activities we can provide collection buckets. Please contact us directly to request these.
  3. We can occasionally provide fundraising items such as DMWS Running Vests.

How to boost your fundraising

  1. Create a list of potential supporters, this might include: Family and friends, neighbours, fellow members of clubs and community groups, local pubs, employers and workmates. (Some employers will match whatever you raise so it’s always worth asking!)
  2. Set a target, it may sound simple, but setting yourself a sum you would feel really proud to raise is an effective way of maximising your fundraising. It can help to keep you motivated and spur you on.
  3. Gift Aid Fundraising via Virgin Money Giving will give a person donating to your fundraising activity the option of ‘gift aid’. If your sponsors are UK tax payers at the time their donation was made towards your fundraising activity, DMWS may be able to claim 25% of it back.
  4. Tell others about your fundraising activity on social media, in your local paper, radio station or even your local TV broadcaster.
  5. Let us know you are fundraising for DMWS, tag us in your posts and photos on social media and we can share your activities.

A big THANK YOU from all of us at DMWS!
