FUNdraise 4 US

Fundraising for The Racehorse Sanctuary is great fun and very rewarding.

No matter what size your contribution or event it all adds up: you will be making a real difference to the lives of our horses. Part of the fun is involving your friends and spreading the word about what we do: make the most of your social media skills on behalf of a fantastic cause. Involvement in our fundraising is also a great way to make new friends, both real and virtual.

Why not get involved?

- Hold an event
- Join a challenge or sponsored ride
- Run or cycle for for us
- Help us to help them

At The Racehorse Sanctuary we rely totally on voluntary donations to fund our work in the rehabilitation of ex-racehorses. Fundraising is vital to our very existence and 'every little helps' from pennies donated in our collection boxes to large scale charity events such as our Racing Days and The Thoroughbred Ball.

There are many different ways that you can help raise money to support these horses. You can get involved by volunteering to help someone else’s event. Or by organising a fundraising event of your own, as a beginner with a coffee morning in your own home for your friends and neighbours. Or as an experienced fundraiser with ideas of your own to contribute, and share with us.

Make sure you keep the fun in FUNdraising. If you are new to raising money for a charity we suggest you don't start with something too daunting, you should enjoy yourself while working on behalf of these deserving animals.

To keep it simple, create your own activity page on the Sanctuary’s own JustGiving page: E-mail the link to your friends and contacts and post on Facebook. JustGiving makes it so easy for them to donate online.

Do not forget to send us details and photos for our newsletter: From the Horse’s Mouth. We would like to use your experiences to inspire others to FUNdraise 4 U.
