    Tips for Raising Sponsorship


    The whole rationale for the Nidderdale Walks is to provide a vehicle to enable enthusiastic walkers to raise sponsorship monies for their favourite charities. Whist we appreciate that fundraising is a challenge in itself, it can be fun and very rewarding if you plan it right. Before you start, think about...

    • How much can you raise?
    • Set yourself a realistic fundraising target.
    • Your sponsors will be impressed by your determination and more likely to reward your efforts.
    • Will your charity give you support?
    • Who will sponsor you?
    • Think about all the people you know and split them into groups. For example: Family – immediate and wider, their friends.
    • Friends – from school, university, clubs, other organisations, online social networks.
    • Work – current and former colleagues, customers, suppliers.
    • Community – pub, church, local shops.

    Then think about how likely all these people are to sponsor you, and how much they might donate – you’ll soon see if your sponsorship target is achievable.

    Why don’t you...use your friends as promoters to fundraise on your behalf?


    Fundraising Online

    Online fundraising is fast, easy, and safe. It lets you promote your challenge, contact all your supporters in one go, and raise funds securely. There are a number of online fundraising sites but perhaps the best known is www.justgiving.com



    Promoting your challenge is key to maximising your fundraising efforts. You need to decide who you want to tell, what you want to tell them, and how.

    Think about the use of social media – Facebook, Twitter etc. Keep people interested in what you’re doing. What you are planning. How training is going. Let them see that you’re working hard and towards a goal, and keep it fun and friendly.


    AND FINALLY ----- Good luck
