Fundraise for BMS World Mission

Transform lives by doing what you love

 
Every single one of us can be a fundraising superstar! Your passion may be boxing, baking or ballroom dancing. It might be singing, sky-diving or sewing. Whatever lights you up could be used to shine light around the world, into the lives of those yet to experience the love of Jesus.

Could you set yourself a sponsored challenge or arrange a fundraising event? Follow in the fundraising footsteps of BMS supporters who have previously done read-a-thons, scooter rides, dinner parties, hitch-hiking, marathons, cake sales and carol singing. Or come up with your own unique, crazy idea! 

You have the power to transform lives

Super Cyclist

After hearing about BMS’ lifesaving work with mothers and babies in Afghanistan, Ian used his passion for cycling to do a sponsored cycle ride, covering a whopping 1,016 miles across the country and raising a massive £2,273.75!

Got more questions?

What’s the best way to collect donations?

If you prefer the traditional way of raising money, you can download our BMS sponsorship form and record people’s pledges there.  

Alternatively, you might like to set up your own online fundraising page – justgiving.com is a great place to start. It’s simple to do and has all the information you need. 

Can I use your logo?

Yes! This resource bundle includes logos to download as well as other resources you can use to introduce people to BMS. Feel free to change the size; all we ask is that you don’t crop it or change the proportions. [Link to logos bundle will be added later]

Are there BMS resources I can use?

We would love to provide you with BMS resources to support your fundraising event. There is no charge for these. Please contact us to discuss your needs. 

Can you promote/advertise my fundraising event?

We don’t currently offer this, but we love to hear and celebrate fundraising successes on our social media platforms so please do get in touch. 

Can I restrict my fundraising to one of your appeals or a specific project/work/ministry?

Absolutely! We just suggest you check with us before you start fundraising for a specific project, appeal or mission worker to ensure we are still taking donations for them. On the other hand, if you fundraise for the general work of BMS, you can be sure that the money you raise will be used wherever it is needed most.

Can Gift Aid be claimed on the funds I raise?

It depends on the way you decide to donate but here are some basics: 

Traditional fundraising 

We can claim Gift Aid if: 

(1) you provide the Gift Aid declaration form filled in by the donor, agreeing that they’d like us to claim it and  

(2) the donation is given to us directly.

Online fundraising 

If you use a fundraising platform such as Just Giving, your supporters will usually be given the option to complete an online Gift Aid form, and the extra money will be sent to us with the gift. Some other platforms may claim the Gift Aid for themselves so check their terms when setting up your page. 

 

For more information, please visit our Gift Aid page.
