If you’re looking for ways to make your fundraising go further, read our simple tips for boosting your donations. Whatever you give, it’ll make a real difference to people affected by breast cancer.

Gift Aid 

By using Gift Aid, you can increase any donations from a UK taxpayer by a massive 25%, at no extra cost to you. 

Sign in using your unique wear it pink registration number and order a Gift Aid form to be sent to you. Ask everyone who donates to fill out their details, if they’re eligible. 

It'll make a huge difference to the amount you raise; if you donate £2, we’ll receive an extra 50p. So, it’s a great way to boost your fundraising and help us raise even more money for  life-saving breast cancer research. 

Matched funding 

Another fantastic way to boost your fundraising, with no cost to you, is to ask your employer if they can match the money you raise, usually pound-for-pound. This means you could end up with up to double the donation you began with. 

We recommend chatting with your manager or employer about your fundraising plans, well before the day, to see if matched funding is something your company can provide. 

Not all companies will be able to support you pound-for-pound, but they might be able to match you up to a certain amount, or match 50% of what you fundraise. Any help is always appreciated, and every donation matters. We’re happy to send proof of your donation if you need it, just email us or call us on 0333 20 70 300. 

Hold your event on a different day 

If you’re busy on wear it pink day, or not at work or school, that’s no problem. Hold your event on a different day, or over a week, so you catch as many people as possible. You can collect donations in a collection box as well as online by setting up a JustGiving page. Have a look at our handy JustGiving guide.

Fundraising games are a great way to engage people at your wear it pink event. Even better, they’re a fun and easy way to raise lots of life-changing cash. We suggest asking your guests to give a small donation to play.
