It’s time to step outside your comfort zone, why not set yourself a challenge and support S4A at the same time.
As a registered charity, we rely on funding and donations to ensure we can continue to support as many people with ASC and their families as possible. Without your support we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.
If you want to raise funds whilst participating in an event or you would like to set up your own event, we’d be delighted if you chose Space4Autism as your worthy cause. If you want some ideas, give us a ring and we will give you the support you need.
Setting Up a JustGiving Page
Raising sponsorship online is the simplest way to fundraise for your event, as it removes the hassle of collecting monies from your sponsors before and after the event.
The money comes directly into our bank account so you don’t need to worry about the logistics of collecting it together and getting it over to us.
The other main benefit is that your supporters can very easily Gift Aid their donations right away, giving us an additional 25% extra at no cost to themselves.
We have a number of crafters who make things for Space4Autism to sell in our shop area.
Please come in and take a look, or if you would like to join the crafting team please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Top Tips – Plan Your Activity
Choose a date that suits you and your supporters and remember you’ll need to allow time to organise your activity. Weekends are usually easiest for everyone, or Fridays work well if you’re fundraising at work. Remember to check that it doesn’t clash with any other activities in the area, or major sporting events.
How many people do you expect to take part in your activity? Think about the kind of space and facilities you’ll need, and if you do need a venue, book it in plenty of time as venues go quickly.
Remember to mention that your event is for charity – often you’ll be able to get the venue for a reduced rate or perhaps even for free.
Create a budget and stick to it. Remember to factor in items such as venue hire, music,
entertainment, catering, venue decoration and promotion and always leave a contingency sum to cover any un-accounted expenses.
Set a target
Set a fundraising target. It’s a great way to motivate people to give generously though
remember to be realistic.

• Send a cheque (payable to Space4Autism)
