Fundraising

We’re so very grateful to you for your time and commitment in fundraising for the MCKS Charitable Foundation UK.  All of the money you raise from your events and activities makes a world of difference and every pound takes us closer to our goal so that children in our schools have consistent access to food, toiletries and sanitary supplies through our School Pantry Cupboards.

Some of the most vulnerable students in schools are facing extremely difficult life situations such as homelessness and financial hardship. These students can now visit their school pantries discreetly to get access to everyday essentials. The feedback (please link from the word feedback to our school pantries page) we receive from schools is heartfelt and humbling, and it is wonderful to know how much of a difference your support is already making. 

Please read our documents to support your fundraising efforts and an A-Z of ideas for activities and events. 
Our team are here to assist you and welcome your ideas and suggestions.

Top Tips for Online Fundraising

Online fundraising pages are a great way to seek donations and track your fundraising progress. They are easy to set up and share with potential supporters.  Our preferred online fundraising platform is Just Giving. 

Kick start your fundraising by using these Top Tips to maximise impact on your page.

Use simple ways to boost donations to your fundraising page by adding photos, setting a target and telling your story.  Personalize your story by letting supporters know exactly why you’re taking on this challenge.

Start with your first accomplishment and use fundraising milestones to share your page!  Think creatively, link a training app like Strava to document your journey.

Don’t stop, keep going!  Every penny you raise will help support children to have consistent access to food, toiletries and sanitary supplies and open new schools pantry cupboards across the UK.

Kick start your fundraising by donating yourself to show supporters you are committed.  Reassure people no matter how small the donation every penny will make a huge difference to the lives of children in the UK.

Post on all your social media channels-use the social media icons. Creating links and using a QR code is a quick and efficient way of directing supporters straight to your fundraising page. Add to your email signature, text, what’s app, website, link tree or create a poster. Remember, personal asks for support work just as well!

We love to hear fundraising success stories please email fundraising@mckscharity.co.uk with photos, videos and details about your activities and your grand total so we can share this with others.
