As a self-funded charity, we rely on fundraising to enable us to carry out our work. There are many ways to raise funds for The Breck Foundation; here are a few examples of how people help us:
No Tech 4 Breck
Our No Tech 4 Breck is designed to encourage people to ditch their technology for a few hours to increase awareness of online safety and raise funds for The Breck Foundation. This can be done at school or at home as a family. Many families find it a great way to reconnect by ditching their technology! If you are interested in taking part in this activity, contact us and we can post a form out to you.
Whether it’s skydiving, running or climbing a mountain, challenge events are a great way to push your personal boundaries and raise money for a great cause at the same time. Our supporters have come up with many weird and wonderful ways of raising money via sponsorship. If you have an idea of something you would like to do please do get in touch. We'd love to hear all about it and post it on our Facebook and Instagram. Thanks!
School events are always great for fundraising, whether it’s a bake sale, non-uniform day or sponsored event. Many schools have helped us raise funds this way over the years.
Corporate fundraising and sponsorship
Company and corporate events are always a great way of lifting staff morale and fundraising for a good cause at the same time. Many companies help us in a variety of ways, either by organising events of their own or letting their staff volunteer to help us at Breck Foundation events. Some larger corporates have charitable schemes available to match any funding raised. We have more information available in the Corporate section.
Do you shop at Amazon? If so you can raise funds for us while you shop by always buying from smile.amazon.co.uk and selecting The Breck Foundation from the list of charities. The service and products are the same but Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to us. Not all products are eligible, but you can see which ones are as they are marked “eligible for smile.amazon.co.uk donation” on their product detail pages.
Recycle 4 Charity
