Fundraising

In order to participate on a project, you must raise a contribution of a minimum of £1,500 for Global Hope which goes towards the costs of travel and accommodation. Over recent years, fundraising activities have included sponsored walks, car boot sales (selling unwanted items for a small amount of money), cake and craft sales, cocktail evenings and even baked bean baths. Staff participants will be asked to proactively raise funds for their Global Hope project.

Since all fundraising for the Global Hope Projects in 2018 need to be completed in the spring, it is vital to start early. We offer workshops to help Global Hope students in their fund raising effort.

To book on this year’s fundraising sessions, please email globalhope@hope.ac.uk.

Staff support you in your fundraising attempts, and the Global Hope team are always available to help with any questions around fundraising and run advice sessions where talks are given by former Global Hope participants and their methods of fundraising.

Testimonals around Fundraising:

“The support I received from Global Hope was amazing. Elizabeth Hachmoeller (Global Hope Staff Member) had given us a lot of fundraising ideas. The most useful and quickest way I found to raise money was through the Just-Giving website (https://www.justgiving.com/liverpoolhope).”

Neelum Ahmed, student

 

“Our tutor played an important role in bringing our ideas together. Art and Design students unwanted course work can be sold in order to raise money towards their project.”

Attila Olah, student

 

“I found the leaflet providing ideas for fundraising very useful, however I came up with the idea to buy things inexpensively on the internet and sell them to family and friends. I found it hard to get my student friends to donate, however they were more generous when presented with something they`d get in return rather than an outright donation. My most successful method was making and selling bracelets.”

Emma Stott, student

 

"I chose to do a sponsored bike ride from Liverpool to Brighton. It's approximately 250 miles. On the first day I cycled for 13 hours, on the second day for 12  and on the third for 19 hours. I decided to do this as I enjoy cycling and wanted to push myself physically and mentally to my limits and I wanted to find out what those limits were. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life but words cannot describe how happy I was when I saw my home in Brighton. The ride managed to make most of the money up."

Marcus Morris, student

 

“I raised funds through sponsorship from friends, completing the Mersey Tunnel 10k and also selling things on online auction sites. The Global Hope Uganda group were keen to carry out some fundraising together as well.”

Helen McCrea, student
