Sponsorship tips

Sponsorship tips excerptFrom setting up an online fundraising page to paying in a cheque, this page has all the information you need to help get your fundraising up and running.
 

Collecting sponsorship

Once you have signed up to a Yorkshire Cancer Research event or organised your own challenge you will need a way of collecting sponsorship money.
 

Online Fundraising

Online fundraising is a great way to help you raise your sponsorship money! Not only can you take your printed sponsor form to friends and family but you can now send your online sponsor form around the world. Many people also find it easier to send an email, with a link to their online sponsor form, to work colleagues and people that they don’t know so well.
 
Set up your page
No more pestering people to pay up once you have finished your challenge…in just 2 minutes you can have your online fundraising page ready to go! We have made the process as easy as possible…just enter a few personal details, upload a picture of yourself (making your page personal really helps) and you are ready to start emailing the link to your page to friends and family. To get started click here.
 
Team fundraising pages
We know that our supporters love to fundraise in teams – the more of you there are the better you are at pooling your resources. To set up a team fundraising page click here.
 

Download a sponsor form

Our paper sponsor form is a great way to collect sponsorship when you are out and about. Why not pin one to the office notice board or put one up at your local sports club? Download sponsor form.

Don’t forget to Gift Aid it!

When you make a donation to Yorkshire Cancer Research, we are able to claim back the tax that you have paid on the donation. This amounts to an extra 25p for every £1 that you give. If you would like us to Gift Aid your donation, you will need to inform us that you are a UK taxpayer and you would like us to reclaim the tax on your donation. You can do this by filling in our Gift Aid Declaration, or by calling 01423 501269 and making an Oral Declaration over the phone.
Unfortunately, if your donation includes money collected from more than one person, such as sponsorship or fundraising from an event or collection, we cannot claim Gift Aid without a sponsor form.
 
Thank you for choosing to support Yorkshire Cancer Research. Your money will help fund vital cancer research across the region. If you have any questions email fundraising@ycr.org.uk or call our fundraising team directly on 01423 877210.
