We are always extremely grateful for the energy, creativity and enthusiasm of people who raise funds for us — it’s a real source of support for our ministry.

We know that fundraising can be hard work, so here are some ideas, checklists and things which we hope will help.

Where to send what you raise

There are three options: to dedicate the funds towards the running costs of our work, to donate to our loan fund, or to donate towards our bursary fund. Each of these has a separate bank account and it would help us to know where you would like the money you have raised to go. Find out more on our ‘donate’ page.
