Events and activities represent a great way to raise money for FONSA. They can also be a way to tell people about the work of FONSA and the reasons for why its work is worthwhile.
Participating in Organised Events
If you are taking part in an event, you can raise money for FONSA through sponsorship. You can collect donations from sponsors on-line (or through cash and cheques).
Sponsorship via Credit and debit card payments
The easiest option is to encourage your sponsors to donate online by using their credit or debit card. This is straightforward for you and the donors. It all works through our Virgin Money Giving web pages.
All you have to do is follow the guidance on the Virgin Money Giving web site, putting in details of the event, and everything else happens automatically. You do not need to know anything about web page creation.
This gives full details of how to set up the pages you need. Please contact us if you would like advice or need to discuss anything.
Collecting donations as cash or cheques
If some (or all) of your sponsors want to pay in cash or by cheque you can send it as soon as possible after the event to the FONSA Treasurer at the address below. Please do all you can to get the information needed for Gift Aid because this increases the donation value by 25% without any extra cost for you.
Running an event yourself
You can organise an event yourself and raise money for FONSA. This is also made easy by Virgin Money Giving.
The event could be:
- A race or similar participation event
- A personal or group event such as walking a set distance
- A personal challenge - such as growing a beard, losing weight, giving up smoking
- Almost anything!
Collecting money for these is made easy by Virgin Money Giving.
Please follow the instructions and contact us if you would like advice or need to discuss anything.
If you raise sponsorship through cash, we can send you a suitable form to use. All money raised must be sent as soon as possible to the FONSA Treasurer at the address below. Please do all you can to get the information needed for Gift Aid because this increases the donation value by 25% without any extra cost for you.
If you want to host a meeting about Nablus, FONSA or the situation in Palestine, please contact us. The Trustees are happy to give advice and will, wherever possible, come to talk about the work of the charity and the reasons why its work is required.
To discuss an event please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are running an event please do all you can to ensure that we can collect the Gift Aid on donations. There are a few simple rules:
- Only UK taxpayers are eligible
- The taxpayer must give consent
- We must have their name and home address
Gift aid gives us 25% extra without any extra cost so it is
well worthwhile collecting the information.
We can supply forms to help you with collection of Gift Aid information for donors paying in cash.
When donations are collected through Virgin Money Giving, all the necessary questions are automatically asked so all you need to do is to encourage your sponsors to give the information if they are eligible.
Choose FONSA for your sponsorship
Whether you want to organise your own event, participate in an existing event, or raise money in memory of a friend or relative, we would welcome your efforts.
You will find this easier if you make use of our pages on the Virgin Money Giving web site. Here you can create a page for your event and get people to pay their sponsorship directly to FONSA including Gift Aid. We also welcome cash donations and can help you by providing suitable forms for donors to fill in.
Please send all correspondence about donations to:
