MAD Fundraising Pack – to help kick start some ideas for activities you may wish to do pre-trip
Donation to Project Costs (MAD Foundation)
Project Donations can be done via offline fundraising or individual and group JustGiving pages – to the MAD (Make A Difference) Foundation.
Fundraising Targets can be reduced depending on choice of Project Goal should you wish to tackle, but we are suggesting a GBP 500 individual target unless you feel you want to raise your target higher.
The individual Fundraising Targets direct to the MAD Foundation can all be raised by Just Giving (or an alternative fundraising platform if preferred) and covers a contribution towards MAD Foundation's sustainable development initiatives which includes the cost of all building materials and local skilled labour that will be tasked to your team during their visit, and finance to local entrepreneurs to kick start their businesses. Plus packs of sports equipment to a selection of Primary Schools that includes installing football, volleyball and netball posts and nets, and a store of balls for the schools.
We encourage you to try and meet your goal around 30 days before departure in order for Just Giving to forward your Project specific donations onto our MAD Foundation.
