Fundraising

SOFT UK relies almost entirely on fundraising and donations for its work.

We are staffed by a team of hard working volunteers, who donate endless hours of their time to helping other families.  However we still in incur costs in some of our work; family days, publishing information booklets, IT and administration, etc. 

There are many ways that you can help SOFT UK carry on doing this valuable work. Download a copy of our FUNDRAISING PACK to get you started!

Do what you love and raise money for SOFT UK! Whatever your 'thing', turn it into a fundraising challenge for SOFT UK. 

Keen sportsperson? Or fancy giving something new a go? Skydiving anyone? Or something more relaxing like knitting, or baking! We work with well known online fundraising platforms to enable you to easily create your perfect challenge. It takes minutes to set up an event, which can be easily shared with friends and family, in your communities or even with your local press. Online fundraising maximises donations and it simplifies everything for you.  Donations are collected on your behalf and paid directly to SOFT UK, so no pockets full of coppers or pesky banking. They even reclaim GIFT AID from your supporters, adding potentially an extra 25% to your total. It could not be easier, so start TODAY. 

SOFT UK works with providers with no, or low, commission fees in order to maximise the donations you collect. 

BTMyDonate charges no fees or commission, only card processing fees

VirginMoneyGiving charges 2% commission on donations, plus card processing fees

You can also download our offline sponsorship forms to collect donations for your event.  Please remember to return these to us so we can claim GIFT AID.

It’s completely free to use and your shopping won’t cost you a penny more.

On average, each retailer will donate 5% of the cost of your shopping - and those donations soon mount up.
