Are you feeling ready to dust off those running shoes? Perhaps you’re a star baker, or you fancy skydiving out of a plane…?
Whether you’ve already got your sights set on a fundraising challenge, or need a nudge in the right direction, our friendly fundraising team are here to help. We have lots of resources to help you plan your fundraising journey – from holding a tasty Cake and a Cuppa morning with friends, to free-falling from 15,000ft, we can help get you started.
Every penny you raise will go towards changing young Deaf lives. Read through some different ways to get involved below, take a look at our list of events or contact the team for a chat and our support
Take part in an event
There are hundreds of events out there for you to get involved in and help change young Deaf lives.
You can take part in a physical challenge, enjoy a cake bake with friends, or even sign up to take part in a ’virtual event’.
Take a look at our events calendar, but if nothing takes your fancy then why not organise your own event? Get in touch with your idea and we’ll support you every step of the way.
Don’t forget to let us know you are taking part and we’ll send you a fundraising pack and offer you loads of support. Or simply download a sponsor form or set up your online sponsorship page today.
Celebrate a special occasion
Help your occasion make a real difference. Whether it’s your birthday, anniversary or just an excuse to have a party we are so thankful to everyone who thinks of the Deaf Academy when celebrating their own special event.
We can supply balloons and materials and previous supporters have had some great success setting up a donate button on facebook.
Get in touch today to discuss your special event.
Raise money through your school or group
Schools – Would your students like to learn more about what it’s like to be Deaf, have fun learning some basic sign language and fingerspelling and take part in our ‘Voice Off’ sponsored silence? Or perhaps they would like to raise funds in other ways like cake bakes or dress down days?
We have a range of lessons plans to suit all ages and you and your school can help to make a real difference to young Deaf lives.
Download one of our School packs today and get in touch to receive lots of support.
Groups – You might be a Brownies or Scouts pack, a rugby or golf club, or a society, such as the local Round Table. You might be looking for someone to give a talk about our work, want to organise a bag pack or fun run, a coffee morning or golf tournament, or help raise awareness of what we do. Simply get in touch to join our team and help support young Deaf lives.
Raise money through your company
We can’t provide our inspiring students with a new Academy without support from corporate partners – the companies whose donations help us provide the best possible care to the children and young people who need it most.
You could choose us to be your Charity of the Year and get the benefit of our expertise and experience when it comes to organising your charity events. Or you could encourage your staff to take part in one of our events.
Whether you’re a huge organisation or a sole trader, our experienced fundraisers will work with you to find the scheme that suits you best.
