Fundraising Tips

Thank you for choosing to fundraise, we are truly grateful for your support in this special way. Every donation, no matter how big or small will help to bring compassionate care and loving support to palliative patients and their families. 

1. Make a gift from your heart

Start your fundraising by being the first to make a donation. Family and friends are more likely to donate, if you have donated to the cause yourself.

2. Share

Send emails or post on your socials to let everyone know that you are walking for Mary Potter and would appreciate their support. Make sure you upload a photo to your page and add a heartfelt message on why you are involved.

3. Pink Collection Box

We have money boxes (cardboard) to assist you with your fundraising. Give family and friends a box and ask them to drop all their small change in the boxes during May. Small change can make a big difference to the care, so contact the Foundation on 08 8239 0119 or to ask for one or more pink collection boxes.

4. Fundraise in more traditional ways

Host a bake sale, garage sale, quiz night, raffle or casual day. For more assistance or to obtain an Authority to Fundraise letter please call us on 08 8239 0119 or email us at [email protected]

5. Ask your company about matching gifts

Some companies will match employee fundraising efforts. Talk to your boss or HR department about whether this is something your company would consider for you.

6. Say thank you

Your family and friends will be thanked by the Foundation, but you might like to send your own personal thank you message. When Walk for Love is over you could email everyone again to say thank you and share some photos from your day.

If you didn’t register online but want to have a fundraising page to share with family and friends, we can help you set this up. Call us on 08 8239 0119 or email [email protected].
