Fundraising for Calibre
If you can organise your own fundraising event or take part in a sponsored activity, then we'd love to hear from you.
Organising an event/activity
We can provide materials, practical support and advice for your venture - whether it is a coffee morning, quiz, sponsored challenge, raffle or wherever else your imagination leads you. Read our Fundraising Pack which gives advice and details of how Calibre can support you in your endeavours.
Popular fundraising activities include participating in a sponsored run, cycle, walk, swim or other event. If you are participating in a sponsored event or organising your own challenge you can set up an online fundraising page with JustGiving. You can email the link to your page to your friends and family.
When they sponsor you online Calibre receives the money directly from JustGiving which is so much easier than collecting the money yourself, and it means you can concentrate on the event!
You can download our Sponsored Events Information Pack here. We can provide you with sponsor forms but if you prefer to create your own materials, our logo can be downloaded below for use on your own materials - just right click on the image.
Please contact our Fundraising Team on firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01296 432 339 for further details, support or ideas.
Businesses can help Calibre provide audio books to more people who are unable to read print. Supporting Calibre makes a positive contribution to our members and can give your company benefits too as we can include details on our website acknowledging your support.
Donations from companies in the United Kingdom can be made free of Corporation Tax.
If you are considering fundraising at work and your company chooses a charity to support each year, Calibre would love to be your Charity of the Year. We are currently the chosen charity partner of Viva Business Networking in Aylesbury.
Many firms match funds raised by staff which is a great incentive that sends out a positive message about the corporate and social responsibility of the company.
Corporate support is not just about money. Support through gifts in kind, advice or provision of services may be really helpful to us. We also welcome opportunities to spread the word about the free service we provide through corporate networking.
You will find stories of some of the companies who have supported us recently on our News pages.
