Fundraising Events

We rely on the generosity of people who share our vision to raise money. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to fund our vital services and develop new ways to support young people to achieve their goals.

Giving up a little bit of your time to raise some money for Each One Teach One can be really rewarding. You’ll feel a real sense of pride for helping to improve the lives of young people. You’ll meet new people. And you’ll have plenty of opportunities to have some fun.

You can join in or organise events of all shapes and sizes to help young people through Each One Teach One. We are developing a range of new ideas and guidelines about the best way to do this, but for now we would love to hear more about what you are planning so get in touch.

If it is useful for your event, you can set up a fundraising page here at just giving www.justgiving.com/eotot . We would also love you to register your event with us using the form to the right. Once you have submitted the form we will get in touch with you to see if there are any ways that we can support your event. You can then set up your Just Giving page and start raising funds for the Trust.

Gift Aid

Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, Each One Teach One gets an extra 25 pence from HM Revenue & Customs. For example, a gift of £10 can be turned into £12.50 and it won’t cost you another penny. Simply return this form and we’ll do the rest. So if you want your donation to go further, Gift Aid it.

Yes, I am a UK tax payer and I would like Each One Teach One to treat all donations I have made for the four years prior to this year and all donations I make in the future as Gift Aid donations, until I notify you otherwise.*

* I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in each tax year, that is at least equal to the tax that Charities & CASCs I donate to will reclaim on my gifts. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify

and that Each One Teach One will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

Please let us know if your tax circumstances or name and address details change so we can amend our records

Planning your Event

So you want to organise an event? Here are our top tips to help make it all run smoothly.

 

When

Choose a date that is best for you and your supporters and remember that you will need time to organise it. Try to avoid competition by finding out when other events may be happening.

Where

Choose a venue that is large enough and has all the required amenities. If you want to sell alcohol or have live music, make sure it has the necessary license.

Budgeting

Work out a simple budget at the start of your planning – include all the costs you expect to incur (promotion, equipment etc) and estimate how much money will come in (tickets, sponsorship). Can you reduce your costs through donated goods or company sponsorship? Set a review date before the event and don’t forget to think about when things need to be paid.

Equipment

What do you need? Write a list so you don’t forget anything.

Helpers

How many do you need? Remember to ask them in plenty of time.

When

It'll be alright on the night!

Write a checklist of all the things you need to do so you don’t forget anything. Double check your equipment, brief your volunteers and arrange some refreshments.

If possible, announce the anticipated amount raised from the event, reminding everyone why the money is being raised and say a big THANK YOU!

Keep it legal and safe

FUNdraising is definitely about having fun and raising some money but it’s also about being safe. Please take some time to read the information below.

Health and Safety and Risk Assessment

It’s all about common sense. Follow the professional advice of equipment manufacturers and staff supervising any facilities. Events need to be adequately assessed to identify, minimise and control the risk to all those taking part and members of the public who may be attending.

Each One Teach One cannot accept liability for any loss, damage or injury suffered by yourself or anyone else as a result of taking part in a fundraising event.

For more information please contact eve@eoto.org.uk

Data protection

Make sure any electronic or paper record you keep about people involved in a fundraising event complies with the Data Protection Act. As a rule of thumb, don’t keep information about people any longer than you have to, and don’t share information or data about someone without their permission.

Insurance

By organising a fundraising event you are responsible for taking adequate steps to ensure that the event poses no risk to others. Check that any buildings or equipment that you hire are covered. Often insurance is included in the hire fee but not always.

For more information please contact your eve@eoto.org.uk

Alcohol and public entertainment license

If your event involves the sale of alcohol and/or live or recorded music, dancing, showing of a film or performance of a play, an indoor sporting event or any entertainment of a similar nature, you may need a licence. Liaise with your local authority, the police and other relevant parties as necessary.

Collections

Public collections are donation collections that take place in a publicly owned place. Public collections are governed by strict legal requirements and must be licensed by the Local Authority. You need to contact us before you do this to make sure we can set you up with the relevant evidence about what you are doing.

Private collections are collections on private premises and do not need the permission of the local authority; only the permission of the owner of the premises.

Raffles, lotteries and prize draws

There are strict legal requirements governing the organisation of raffles, lotteries and prize draws. Please do not organise a raffle without checking first the guidelines with eve@eoto.org.uk
