Many of us today are fortunate not to need or want gifts when we celebrate an event – but our friends and family do love to give us gifts! However, here’s a brilliant idea to make your special occasion even more memorable. Instead of traditional gifts, why not invite your family and friends to make a donation to your favourite charity instead? Opting for donations over gifts can be an incredibly meaningful and heartfelt way to honour and celebrate your special occasion. Your celebration gift is a wonderful way to show your support for and raise awareness of the Brigitte Trust so we can help even more people and families in Surrey living with a life-limiting illness or struggling with bereavement.
Whether you’re having a birthday, celebrating an anniversary, or getting married here are a few easy ways you can give in celebration.
Set up an online fundraising page
Set up your very own celebratory fundraising page via Enthuse. In just minutes you can personalise your page and start sharing the link so your loved ones can donate to your special celebration quickly and easily, and also leave you a special message.
Set up a Facebook fundraiser
Setting up a Facebook Fundraiser is quick and simple and even better 100% of the proceeds come directly to the Brigitte Trust.
- Start by creating your dedicated Facebook Fundraiser Page
- Decide how much you want to raise and how long you think it will take by setting an end date
- Choose a title for your fundraiser and upload a cover photo or use one of ours
- Tell others about why you are fundraising for the Brigitte Trust
- Click Create, and share your page with your family and friends
Donation envelopes & collection boxes
If you’re getting married, celebrating an anniversary, or organising a birthday bash why not include our donation envelopes with your invitations and ask guests to donate to the Brigitte Trust rather than buying you gifts? We can also provide you with collection boxes, posters, and literature to use on your big day. Shortly after your special celebration, we’ll let you know how much has been raised.
Make a donation
If you simply wish to donate in recognition of a special celebration of your own this year then please visit our donation page. Alternatively, download and print our donation form and return it to us by post.
You can send donation forms to:
The Brigitte Trust
If you are donating with a cheque, please make it payable to The Brigitte Trust. We ask that you avoid sending cash donations in the post.
Whatever the celebration or milestone, we’d love to know what you’re planning and why you’ve chosen to support us. We can help you with branded materials and answer any questions. We’d also be delighted to see photos from your special day, so please do send them to us. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
