Fundraising Resources

We have developed two key documents to help anyone who wishes to support our work.

Your Guide to Fundraising for Us provides advice on:

  • Choosing a fundraising activity
  • Accessing support from Home-Start Aberdeen
  • Preparing for sponsorship
  • Promoting your fundraiser
  • Staying safe and legal
  • Submitting funds.

The guide also includes advice for businesses, who may wish to establish a longer-term arrangement to meet their own corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals. As a nominated charity, Home-Start Aberdeen can provide lots of opportunities for employee engagement, if desired.

Our Fundraising A-Z is a shorter, four-page document for those who are seeking fundraising inspiration. Please note that this list is not exhaustive - there are many additional opportunities out there and we are happy for you to pursue those that suit you best. Some of our forthcoming fundraising events are often listed here.

Non-financial assistance

We completely understand that sometimes it is simply not feasible to make a financial contribution.

Many organisations generously offer their services in kind as an alternative.

We also offer a variety of volunteering opportunities, for organisations who allow staff time off to volunteer as part of their CSR commitment.
