Fundraise for us

We’re so grateful to all our fundraisers and everything you do to raise money and awareness of our work. The event or activity you do can be big or small and as simple or as ambitious as you wish. The important thing is to do something you enjoy and feel excited about! Whether you’re a school, a company, a family or an individual, there are so many ways to get involved and support our vital work. You can do anything – from holding a plant sale in your garden or baking cakes, right through to the high adrenaline challenges of taking on the Croyde Triathlon or swimming the English Channel! Or maybe you could ask your organisation to choose Families in Grief as their Charity of the Year?

How we work

Thank you so much for fundraising for us!  As you are aware, we are a small charity with limited resources and so – before you go ahead with your preparations – please read the following.

 Here is what we expect from you:
  • It is your responsibility to organise your fundraising event/activity and to have the correct resources needed to do this
  • It is your responsibility to promote your event/activity using your own resources.
What you can expect from us:
  • We can support your marketing campaign by creating a few posts in the lead up to the event on our FiG social media pages.
  • We can publish information about your event on our FiG website in the lead up to your event.
  • We can help you to connect to local radio stations if you’d like to talk about your event on air and contribute to a press release.
  • We will endeavour to provide you with a few FiG volunteers on the day of your event, but this depends on their availability on the day.

When promoting your event/activity you may wish to use our logo. Please email [email protected] and we will send this to you.

Thank you in advance for your understanding, and thank you again for choosing to be a part of our story – we are very grateful to you.

If you have any questions about this, or fundraising enquiries do please contact us: [email protected]
