Fundraising for NHS Trusts

Money raised through fundraising provides vital funds to NHS Trusts to make a difference in the experience people have when they are being cared for, covering areas not covered or fully supported by NHS funds.

There are many ways for NHS Trusts to raise funds, some of the most well-known being donations from individuals, traditional fundraising events, and fundraising from personal challenges.

All of these fundraising activities are valuable and as an NHS Trust it is worth taking time to explain what’s involved with these activities and to promote them. Setting up a page on your website is a great place to start. This page should include all the essential details and give tips on the best approach. You can also promote fundraising more traditionally using posters and leaflets.

There is also a very valuable way of generating helpful recurring funds that many NHS Trusts are taking advantage of… a charity lottery. Lotteries allow NHS Trusts to raise money from the public in a way that has broad appeal. The added incentive of a prize enables Trusts to engage with those who may otherwise not donate, and gain new supporters.

Woods Valldata provides an off-the-shelf charity lottery that is specifically designed for NHS Trusts and smaller charities, called Affinity Lottery. Woods Valldata has helped numerous NHS Trusts and small charities to raise significant amounts of money through Affinity Lottery, and it has the advantage of being simple and inexpensive to set up and run.
