Do Your Own Fundraising

Organise a fundraising event for SPANA and your efforts will help working animals around the world.  

There are countless ways in which you could raise funds for SPANA. From arranging a stall at a local event to holding a street collection or doing a talk on our work, there are so many fantastic ways to raise funds for the working animals of the world. 

Make sure to let us know about your fundraising by emailing events@spana.org or calling us on 020 7831 3999, and we’ll be here to support you on your journey. Have a look at all the fundraising materials we can provide you with to make your event a huge success. We also recommend reading our fundraising guide  to get the ball rolling.

Local events

The best kind of event is where people have fun! You could host your own World Tea Party, movie night or knitting party using our knitted animal patterns. Perhaps you have a special skill you could offer to entertain your guests, such as playing an instrument or singing. Why not have a look for a local car boot sale, or at community centres and churches for sales that you could have your own stall at, selling bric-a-brac or cakes? For more ideas about organising your own event, have a look at our fundraising guide the possibilities are endless and every penny raised will help working animals in the world’s poorest communities.

Get sponsored

One of the most effective ways to support SPANA’s work is to complete a sponsored event – where the sky really is the limit! You may be inspired to do a sponsored parachute jump or arrange a sponsored walk, run or cycle; the options are endless! This process can be even easier if you setup your own sponsorship webpage, which you can do by visiting JustGiving. Alternatively, there is a sponsorship form you can download here. 

Collection box

Hosting a collection box is an enjoyable and pain-free way of raising funds for our vital work. Why not ask at your local vet, pub, corner shop or pet shop and see if they are able to host a collection box? All we ask is for you to regularly check on it, bank the money to yourself and then send us in the donation. 

Local groups

If fundraising on your own seems a bit daunting, how about getting together with friends, family or work colleagues to form a fundraising group? It’s a great way to meet like-minded people, help working animals and have fun too! Read more about our fundraising groups here. 

Promote!

Once you have decided to raise money for animals, make sure everyone else knows about it! 

Online fundraising – An easy way to fundraise is to set up a fundraising page on JustGiving, then send your page to friends, family and colleagues, making it really easy for them to sponsor you. See our fundraising tips to help you raise even more money!

Social media – Post about your event or challenge on Facebook and Twitter. Keep reminding your friends about the event you are hosting or amazing challenge you’re taking on for SPANA.
