Fundraising Toolkit

Thank you for choosing to support the work we do.  The money you raise through fundraising really will help us to make sure unaccompanied minors and vulnerable adults can gain a safe passage to sanctuary.

I want to fundraise for Safe Passage. How do I get involved?

We’re over the moon you want to fundraise for us. Your amazing efforts really will help us to make sure unaccompanied minors and adults have a safe passage to sanctuary. There are so many ways you can get involved – why not take a look at the Just Giving website for details of fundraising activities near you for some inspiration?

Our recent fundraisers have run the Cardiff Half Marathon, auctioned authors books and poems, held fundraising dinners and inspired their congregation to act.

If you’re not sure what’s right for you, then drop us an email fundraising@safepassage.org.uk and we’ll be in touch to help you find the fundraising activity that’s perfect for you.

How do I collect donations?

The easiest way to collect donations and Gift Aid is by creating a Just Giving online account, the money raised then goes straight to Citizens UK, which the Safe Passage project comes under. Gift Aid can also be easily collected via Just Giving, which is really important to us, as it allows us to collect an extra 25p back on every pound raised by UK tax payers.

If you are collecting money at an event such as a bake sale we ask that you ensure collections are received through a sealed container. This helps to ensure fundraising best practice.

Donations can also be received via text message, just text SPUK66 £10 to 70070 to make a donation for unaccompanied minors. This is a free service for Safe Passage UK. Sending a text donation will either be free (to Vodaphone customers), be included in your text bundle or will be costed as a standard text rate by your mobile operator. Gift Aid can be added to donations. Click here for full terms and conditions of SMS donate service.

Alternatively, to help get the cash flowing in, we recommend you use our simple branded sponsorship forms. Just contact us at fundraising@safepassage.org.uk and we’ll email the form to you.

How will you use the Funds raised?

The funds we receive go directly towards helping those in need.  And in return we will give you something that no amount of money can buy – a warm fuzzy feeling of doing something good, something life changing and something that will be appreciated far more than any of us can probably imagine.

We need your support to:

  • Identify unaccompanied minors in Europe
  • Train interpreters, community leaders, lawyers, governments and other non-government organisations on the legal framework
  • Take on test cases and establish a system for processing them
  • Work to ensure both UK and host countries take forward further cases
  • Support unaccompanied minors on arrival to the UK

Our work is at different stages in France, Greece and Italy.

Let us know your plans
