Charity Challenges

How does it work?

There are usually two payment options: self-funding or a fundraising minimum sponsorship option.  Self-funded trips mean the participant covers the full cost of the expedition, including flights, accommodation, food and activities. The money raised goes straight to the charity and there is often no set minimum amount.  

Minimum Sponsorship
Select the charity closest to your heart or one of the charities registered to our Open Challenge programme, register for the challenge and then fundraise £2,800. Providing you have raised the funds 10 weeks before the challenge your charity will pay the tour costs on your behalf with the remaining money and any money you raise over your minimum sponsorship going directly to support the work of your charity.
Self Funding with Sponsorship
Pay the tour costs yourself, 10 weeks before the challenge and then fundraise as much as you can for the charity of your choice (or make a donation) but there is no minimum sponsorship requirement.

BESPOKE CHALLENGES

OWNERSHIP

The great thing about doing a bespoke event is that you have ownership over it; the actual product that you choose, the financial forecasting and the marketing surrounding it. For example, you may choose an event that is relevant to your charity (it may start or finish at your hospice, HQ, or take a route which visits an overseas project) so the objective of the challenge really resonates with your supporters and the purpose for sponsorship is clear.With a bespoke charity fundraising event, you have control over your own challenge marketing and branding – you can shout to the roof tops about how much fundraising money your event will raise, exactly where this money will be spent and the social impact it will have.With our team handling the end to end organisation of the trip, you can spend your time building up relationships with your supporters, guiding them through the journey between sign up and challenge departure (from handwritten good luck notes to twitter conversations, you’ll be able to make this experience personal) meaning you can get to know their motivations for choosing to fundraising for you - often great PR stories can come of this.

PARTNERSHIP

We always work in partnership with our charities and corporate groups and we’re proud of the number of long-standing clients we work with year on year. Your fundraising event is unique to you, as is your vision, objectives and supporter base and this always forms the basis of the challenge concepts we develop for you.One of the areas we really enjoy is identifying the ways we can enable you to grow your event year on year, through the continuation of a theme or the development of a challenge portfolio to give variety and choice to your supporters. Every bespoke fundraising event will have your stamp on it, even if it’s one of our existing events.
