As an individual, as a group or as part of a network, you can make a huge difference to our work by choosing to support Stonewall in your workplace.
Fundraising is a great way to engage your lesbian, gay, bi and trans staff and demonstrate how your organisation is committed to supporting and improving the lives of LGBT people. There are lots of ways that you can get involved in supporting Stonewall throughout the year. Whether it’s getting a group together to take part in a sponsored run or challenge, holding a skills swap raffle in your office, or choosing us as your Charity of the Year.
Hold an event
- Equali-tea – Get a group of people together over a cup of tea, have a conversation about LGBT equality and raise vital funds for our work. Sign up for your free pack and make it more than just a bake sale.
- Quiz night – All you need is a quizmaster and a venue, then invite your colleagues, clients and friends for a friendly night of fun in the name of a great cause.
- Benefit nights - Nominate Stonewall as the charity partner for work events, such as your summer ball or Christmas party.
More ideas and tips are available in the Fundraising Pack at the bottom of this page. Whatever you have planned, we can help by supplying information and resources to help your event make even more of an impact.
Pick a challenge that staff can get involved in. Choose anything you like - a triathlon, marathon, parachute jump - they can all act as a team building experience as well as a great fundraiser!
Engage the whole company
Nominate Stonewall as your organisation's chosen Charity of the Year.
Help raise awareness of our work throughout your offices during key dates in the LGBT calendar, e.g. LGBT History Month in February or Anti-Bullying Week in November.
Find out what your employer has available to help you maximise your donations to Stonewall – e.g. payroll giving or matched funding.
Whatever you’ve got planned, we’re here to support you every step of the way. We can offer advice and guidance on your fundraising plans and supply fundraising materials such as posters, stickers and collection tins. Most importantly of all, we’ll provide bags of enthusiasm and encouragement along the way.
