With the support of fundraisers like you, last year 17,400 households saw a positive change in their housing situation.*

How do I fundraise for my event?

We're here to help with any fundraising queries and are more than happy to talk through ideas with you. We recommend starting by setting up a fundraising page on JustGiving.

Not reaching your sponsorship pledge impacts on what Shelter can achieve, so please ensure you are confident in reaching this target before signing up to the event. The deadline for sending in your sponsorship is six weeks after event day.

Raising a minimum sponsorship pledge

It's important to raise a minimum sponsorship pledge, as we invest in places at charity events. Each place is important to ensure we raise as much as possible to support our vital work.
