Fundraising for small health-based charities

Money raised through fundraising provides vital funds to small health-based charities to make a difference in the experience they deliver to the individuals and families they support.

There are many ways for health-based charities to raise funds, some of the most well-known being donations from individuals, traditional fundraising events, fundraising from personal challenges, corporate sponsorship/support and gifts in memory.

All of these fundraising activities are essential and as a small charity 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 small health-based charities are taking advantage of… a small charity lottery. Lotteries allow smaller charities to raise money from the public in a way that has broad appeal. The added incentive of a prize enables charities to engage with those people who may otherwise not donate, and gain new supporters.

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