Firstly, thank you for choosing to raise money for the RNLI. Of all the good charities to raise money for, we’re honoured and so very thankful that you have chosen to raise money to save lives at sea. Especially during one of the toughest times the world has ever faced - a time when our income is falling and we need your support more than ever.
The health crisis has hit our income hard. Lockdown halted the fundraising events we rely on to power our lifesaving service. Yet our lifeboat crews have never stopped being on call 24/7, ready and willing to save lives. They still need protective crew kit and fuel to launch their lifeboats. And their lifeboat stations and lifeboats still need to be maintained and repaired. With your support, they’ll always be ready, right now and in the future.
Your fundraising can help us weather the storm
Whether you’re looking for fundraising ideas or need help planning, promoting and running your fundraising event, we’ve got all the advice and resources you need on how to raise money for charity and smash your fundraising target!
There are also all kinds of organised fundraising events you can get involved with, from challenges and sporting events to more sedate coffee mornings and social events.
The best and easiest way to rally support, promote your fundraiser and collect online donations is to set up and share your online fundraising page. And, when the fun’s all over, we make it easy for you to pay in your fundraiser donations online for any sponsorship money you’ve collected in person.
