Sponsorship options

You can raise your sponsorship without breaking into a sweat. No more dealing with cash and cheques, no more chasing up your friends after the event. Simply create a free online fundraising page, personalise it with a message, and email it to your friends, family and colleagues. They can donate quickly and securely online with a credit or debit card. Alzheimer Scotland has accounts with the leading two online giving websites  Justgiving.com and Virgin Money Giving.


Gift Aid

Gift Aid is great because it means we can claim 25p back from HMRC on every £1 of sponsorship. Online sponsorship websites enable your supporters to automatically Gift Aid their donation. Learn more about Gift Aid.

Please note: If you are asking people to make a donation via JustGiving.com to buy a ticket for an event, the donation cannot be Gift Aided so please advise them not to tick the gift aid box on the JustGiving.com site or on the sponsor form.

Matched funding. Some companies offer to match the fundraising efforts of their staff. Learn more about Matched Giving.
