2 Thank you for choosing to fundraise for Threshold! Whatever fundraising event or activity you organise, you can be sure it will make a big difference to the lives of those most at risk of homelessness. A little bit about Threshold s work Threshold is a leading national housing charity working to combat and prevent homelessness through the provision of an independent advice and advocacy service. It is our belief that everyone has the right to suitable housing, particularly those who are experiencing the problems of poverty and exclusion. Every year, Threshold helps an increasing number of people facing homelessness all across Ireland. In many of these cases, Threshold s intervention not only lifted the burden of worry from the household, but was the difference for them between remaining in a house and becoming homeless. Last year alone, Threshold solved 21,000 people s housing crises! We have also successfully moved over 650 people out of homelessness in recent year. By fundraising for Threshold, YOU will help us reach even more people with our services. Thank you!

3 Getting Started Where do you start when it comes to organising an event? Right here! This fundraising pack is crammed full of handy tips and inspirational ideas to help kick-start your fundraiser. And remember - the Threshold Fundraising team is only a phone call or away for any help or advice that you need! Ideas for Activities Firstly, you ll need to decide what to do and where to do it and remember, whatever the weather, there s always something you can do.

5 Make a Plan Planning is key to a fun, memorable and successful fundraising event. Start by choosing your type of event get inspiration from our Ideas for Activities Raising the money how to raise the money will depend on what sort of activity you choose to do. For an attendance event you charge an entrance fee, sell tickets, or even hold a bucket collection. Sponsorship works great for an activity or personal challenges. Raffles, auctions and sales are other options. Timing make sure it doesn t clash with another event or occasion and give yourself enough time to prepare. Teamwork Don t try to do everything yourself. Why not ask your friends and family to help you? Or even make a list of tasks, how many helpers you need, and who will do what. Venue - If you need to book a venue, check availability, capacity and think about parking and access. Maybe even see if the owners will let you use it for free first! Weather If your activity or event is going to be outside, make sure to cater for unpredictable weather. Budget Set a realistic income target. Prepare a detailed list of expenses and make sure your costs are covered. The money raised over and above your costs is what will be donated to Threshold. Talk to the Threshold team if you need advice on how to maximise the funds raised. Publicity You can promote your event by dropping posters or fliers into local businesses, libraries, community centres etc. Sometimes your local newspaper or radio station might be interested in publicising it for you for free. Threshold Fundraising Materials We can help! We can provide you with the following materials: Collections buckets Posts T-shirts Leaflets Letter of confirmation of your event from Threshold Simply contact Threshold s fundraising team.

6 Things to think about Always bear in mind that it may be necessary to seek permission from certain parties to run your event. For example, for a public street collection you will need a permit from the Gardaí. Take care of your personal safety when handling and counting money raised through your event. Once you re ready to give the funds to Threshold, get in touch with us to arrange the best way to do it. Please advise Threshold of any publicity you are planning and remember to run any printed/digital publicity past us first. Threshold might also be able to promote your event on our website or social media pages. Keep your event safe, legal and fun! Health and safety advice varies depending on the event you are planning and where it will be held. If you have any questions or want to check anything, you are always welcome to contact Threshold Fundraising team. Contact Us If there is anything we can do to help you organise your fundraising event, please don t hesitate to contact Monica at or Saoirse at or And Finally, Thank You! Thank you so much for deciding to raise much needed funds for Threshold. We couldn t provide our important advice and advocacy services without people like you!
