Fundraising

Would you like to raise funds for Beagle Welfare? What are you good at? What can you do that is different? Or maybe you would like to challenge yourself? There are plenty of ways to raise money.

We are very lucky and very grateful to have so many supporters who carry out an enormous range of exciting activities in order to raise funds to support us.

If you are planning a fundraising even then please contact Mark Parker fundraising@Beaglewelfare.org.uk, our Fundraising Officer, who can help you with getting sponsorship set up online, forms and other marketing information sent to you to help you with your efforts – and so we can promote your event and thank you for doing so!

2018 saw our supporters taking part in marathons, sleeping in kennels, holding raffles, arranging the Beaglefest, organising walks, Beagle racing and supporting Beagle Welfare through many other endeavours.

What will you do in 2019?

A simple and effective way of raising funds is through the JustGiving or Virgin Money websites. These are a great way of spreading the details of your event through social media and via email. You can email us at fundraising@Beaglewelfare.org.uk for a fundraising tool kit and everything you need to make your fundraising a success.

*Important Notice*

As from the 31st March 2019 JustTextGiving will not longer be available. These are the text codes and phone numbers that were on the back of the old fundraising t-shirts.

Here is the information from Just Giving:

“Since launching in 2011, JustTextGiving has been an incredible success. It has reinvented giving for many fundraisers and charities which both Vodafone and JustGiving feel enormously proud of.

However, with changes in consumer behaviour and new technologies, the use of this service has been overtaken by other emerging mobile trends. With that in mind, we wanted to let you know that we will be closing all JustTextGiving accounts next year.

This change will not take place until 31st March 2019, after which all text codes will be deactivated.

Why is JustTextGiving Closing?

JustTextGiving, in partnership with Vodafone, was the ground-breaking service of its time when it was launched in 2011, opening the market for donations by SMS and changed the face of fundraising for charities in the UK.

Since 2014 we have seen a decline in the use of the service and after careful consideration and an independent evaluation of the platform, JustGiving and Vodafone have jointly made the decision to bid farewell to JustTextGiving.

Can you still create JustTextGiving codes?

Yes, you can continue to use the JustTextGiving service as normal and create text codes up until 31st January 2019. All text codes will be active until the 31st March 2019.”

My advice would be not to donate via SMS (text) from today.

We do have other ways to donate, if this was your preferred method, then please contact me, fundraising@beaglewelfare.co.uk , and I can go through other options with you.

Thank you for your continued support – Mark Parker, Fundraising Officer
