These are some further ideas to help you boost your fundraising efforts.

Gift Aid it

If your supporters are UK taxpayers they can add 25% to their donation by opting to GiftAid it.

Match funding

Ask if your workplace offers match funding. It might be a great way to boost the money you've raised and provides an extra incentive to all your supporters.

Top tips to increase donations

  • Remind people again about your fundraising event
  • If you're doing a sporting challenge, think about organising a sweepstake on your finishing time - you can give a small prize to whoever has the closest guess!
  • Do your event in fancy dress, or colour your hair for extra attention and pledges
  • Post regular updates to your supporters. If you're preparing for an event, why not post training updates to let them know how you're getting on?
  • Keep your fundraising page open after your event for a month or so, especially if you've shared photos and details of your challenge - 20% of people donate at this time

Sending in the funds you raise

The sooner you're able to send in the funds you raise the sooner we can use the money to help people with thyroid disorders.

The most secure way to raise funds is to ask your supporters to use your online fundraising page.

Cheques should be made payable to the British Thyroid Foundation and then posted to our office address. Cash or cheques made payable to you must be paid into your bank account and the full amount should be transferred to the BTF (either by cheque or bank transfer). 

If you wish to forward the money raised by bank transfer please get in touch for details.

All funds should be accompanied by details of your fundraising event, a contact name, email, or postal address so we can identify and acknowledge your donation. Please do not send cash in the post.
