Raise Funds for SOS Africa Charity

The education, care and support provided by SOS Africa to the African children we sponsor is enabled by a vast array of fundraising activities organised by individuals and groups from around the World. After deciding to raise funds for African charities, these inspirational people often approach SOS Africa with exciting fundraising projects knowing that 100% of the funds they raise will be invested in the education and care of the children we support.

Information about how to collect fundraising sponsorship

There are now a wide range of methods which you can use to collect sponsorship before, during and after your fundraising event. When deciding which to choose, it is important that you consider which methods will be most popular with your prospective sponsors. Some will prefer to sponsor you online; if this is the case, SOS Africa is registered with a number of online fundraising platforms including: JustGivingEvery ClickVirgin MoneyGiving or Givey. On other hand, some sponsors may prefer to use the traditional paper sponsorship forms; it is always sensible to have these close to hand in the lead up to your event. For public events we also provide downloadable labels for you collection pots...
