If you are reading this then you must have taken the great step of deciding to fundraise for Soft Power Education. First and foremost... thank you very much. Second, all the information you should need to help you with your event can be found on these pages. Whether you are fundraising prior to your trip to Uganda or whilst suffering from post-travelling blues good luck!
How do I fundraise?
Its as simple as 1-2-3... ok maybe not, it'll need some work from you but we guarantee you'll have a good time doing it:
- Take a look at our Great Fundraising section for some inspiration from previous fundraisers.
- Read through our website to make sure you know who you are fundraising for and where the money will go - people will ask!
- Decide on an event
- Get all your friends and family involved
- Have fun raising money for Soft Power Education!
We are only able to achieve so much in Uganda thanks to the generosity of our fundraisers. The money they raise goes to continue the work on Primary School Refurbishments; The Amagezi Education Centre and The Murchison Falls Conservation Area projects. Without these funds we really wouldn't be able to do what we do.
Why do I need to fundraise if I am volunteering?
We do ask anyone who would like to volunteer with us to raise £75 for each and every week they spend with us. This money covers the costs of the materials you use whilst volunteering with us. Everything from paint to cement and fuel for the trucks are covered by your donation. Without your fundraising efforts we wouldn't be able to buy the materials you will need when you get to Uganda.
Need more information?
We have now made it even easier for you to fundraise with our Fundraising Resources page right here on our website. This page contains all of the information you will need - photos, presentations, posters, leaflets... if there is anything missing then just let us know!
We are also now signed up to Just Giving which makes your fundraising as simple as 1-2-3!
