Because Raleigh International is a charity, you can raise the money you need to pay for the expedition through fundraising activities. Don't know where to start? Don't worry, we're here to help!
Raising money for a charitable cause (otherwise known as fundraising) can be hard work, but here at Raleigh International we like a challenge. We'll do everything we can to help you make the most of your fundraising experience. Not only is this a great way of covering the cost of your expedition and raising awareness of Raleigh, but it will also get you in the spirit of your upcoming adventure.
What's more, once you've signed up to an expedition we'll send you a welcome email. This is packed full of information and ideas about fundraising, and includes templates for writing letters and press releases, a list of trusts and foundations you can write to, and loads more. We'll also give you some key messages to help you communicate the benefits of doing a Raleigh expedition when you are fundraising.
Raleigh volunteers hail from an array of locations across the globe, and this is reflected in the range of approaches they take to fundraising. Whether it's just a quick chat on the phone to give you some tips, or more in depth assistance, our support team are always happy to discuss your fundraising activities and send out materials to help you achieve your goals.
If you think your personal circumstances might prevent you from raising the full amount, see if you're eligible for the Raleigh Bursary Award.
Fundraising for your expedition gives you a great opportunity to be creative, develop some networking skills and just have fun.Need more inspiration?
Set up a JustGiving page
We've teamed up with JustGiving, the UK's leading online fundraising website, so you can donate and raise funds for us online. It takes just a few minutes and you can collect donations for any sponsored event or appeal. What are you waiting for? Set up a page today.
If you are joining a Raleigh expedition through a Youth Agency, please ask your key worker to contact Raleigh for more information before setting up your JustGiving account.
Make the most of local media
Contacting your local press is a great way to raise awareness of your expedition and fundraising in your community. What's more, the media love to hear about people doing worthwhile volunteer projects on their gap year.
