Virtual fundraising


The Fundraising Team have been working hard to create some fantastic Virtual Fundraising events and resources that will help to keep you, your family and friends busy and having fun, all while helping to support the Down’s Syndrome Association. And remember, you don’t need to leave your house and garden to take on these fundraisers. What’s not to love?

Please see some of the resources we have created below and make sure to keep checking back with this page as it is a work in progress. We’ll be adding new items as soon as we’ve created them so you can all embrace the Virtual Fundraising world. If you have any great ideas on Virtual Fundraising, please share them with the team: events@downs-syndrome.org.uk. 

Thank you to everyone for their amazing support of the DSA, we really couldn’t run this amazing charity without all of you.

First things first, we need to know WHO you are and WHAT you’re doing. You can do this my downloading the below form and sending it over to the team via email: events@downs-syndrome.org.uk

Do you need to know how to set up an online fundraising page? We’ve created a ‘How To’ guide on this below. The four main platforms that our fundraisers use are listed, but please feel free to use any platform you like that can be linked to the charity. If you have any questions, get in touch with the team.

Quite a few Challenge Events have been cancelled, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get active while at home! We’ve compiled a list of challenges that you can take on in support of the DSA. Make sure to set up an online fundraising page (Virgin Money Giving, JustGiving, Facebook or GoFundMe) or print off our Sponsorship Form to keep tabs of your fundraising

Also our friends over at Run for Charity have partnered with ‘My Race‘ to offer our supporters the chance to take on a number of virtual fundraising challenges. You can find these on our special DSA page on their website. There really are some great challenges you can take on while at home! Click on the image below and find your Virtual Fundraising Challenge!

Why not try and bring the community into your home and host some fun events. Those in your household can join and you can invite people electronically too. Click on the image below to find some great ideas.

Some of our team have been enjoying Virtual Pub Quizzes recently and so we wanted to share with you how you could run your own DSA one! Click below to find a great ‘How To’ guide.

With the help of other DSA staff members and friends of the charity, we have put together a huge amount of questions for #Team21 to use as well. You can find these here!

We’ve also got our helpful Fundraising Resources on our website. You can find our general ones here and our 50th Anniversary themed ones here
