Your Own Fundraiser

YLF aim to raise over £150,000 a year to enable us to continue meeting the demand for our services. We would love for you to help us meet this aim by fundraising for us!

Set Yourself a Challenge

Schools, groups, businesses and individuals can all support YLF by setting themselves a challenge such as a sponsored walk, a or simply by hosting an event such as a coffee morning. You can even set yourself a fundraising target so your supporters can help you reach it. Plan your date, actions and prepare for your challenge! If you need some inspiration check out our A-Z list of fundraising ideas here.

Ask for Sponsorship

Once you have organised your challenge or event, you can set up an online fundraising page via Virgin Money Giving (YLF’s charity registered online giving site) by simply entering your fundraising event details, selecting YLF as you charity, and then asking your supporters to sponsor you on here. The money is all handled online and comes direct to YLF for you convenience. If you are hosting an event and collecting entry fees/donations, we are happy to receive the final amount collected by cheque or BACS. We do also have paper sponsor forms or collection tins for those who need them too – just speak to us!

Support from YLF

YLF will always promote your event or challenge on social media to encourage our followers to support you. You will also have a designated member of the team to help you when you need throughout your fundraising journey. For example they can help you set up an online Virgin Money Giving page, supply you with marketing materials you may want to distribute to your supporters and/or provide you with any t-shirts or kit you need to ensure you represent YLF effectively. They are also there for any questions you may have along the way.

Make a Difference

The money you raise always goes straight to our frontline work which means the young people we support will benefit directly from your fundraising event. If there is a specific project or service you want to select to receive your fundraised money then just let us know. We will make sure you are thanked and updated on where your money has been spent so you know that you have truly made a difference.
