How does my money make a difference?
Thanks to your generosity and support, we are able to run a wide range of projects and initiatives that offer the people we support a better quality of life.
- £12 could pay for an hour of job coach support to help someone with autism into a job
- £22 could help run a taster sign language session within the local community widening communication for many people we support
- £60 could pay for tools for people we support to use on one of our horticulture projects such as Boscawen Farm in Truro, or our allotments in Bristol and Blackpool
How do I set up an online fundraising page?
You can set up a page to fundraise for United Response via Virgin Money Giving. Just select ‘start fundraising’ and follow the instructions. Personalise your page with a photo and a small blurb about why you are fundraising to get your sponsorship rolling in.
How do I let United Response know about my fundraising?
The best way to let us know is by completing an Event Registration Form. Within the form you can let our Fundraising Department know more about you and the event you have planned, and also request materials and assistance from United Response. Completed forms should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is matched giving?
Matched giving is when your employer either matches or adds a donation to your fundraising. It’s worth checking with your employer what their policy is as you could double your fundraising!
What is payroll giving?
Payroll giving is an easy way for you to give to United Response straight from your salary. As the donation comes out of your gross salary, the Government gives United Response the tax that they would otherwise have kept. In other words, it lets you give even more at no extra cost to you. Visit our easy ways to give page to start giving today.
