Fundraise

Fundraise

All of OTR’s services are free for young people. To help us to continue providing our services, donations and fundraising events supporting OTR are very much appreciated and encouraged!

If you would like to fundraise for OTR, we’d love to hear from you. Here are a few things you can do for us:

  1. You can choose a personal challenge to raise funds for us as an individual supporter. Run a marathon, learn a new skill, shave your hair. Whatever floats your boat!

  2. You can team up with friends or use an existing group to fundraise for us. For instance, we’ve had support from a group of friends who decided to cycle to Paris. We also had a group of friends hosting a gameathon for us. It can be a lot of fun to ‘do good’ together. Talk to your friends about OTR and set up a group challenge!

  3. You can also nominate OTR as your Charity of the Year at work, school or social group. That way, we can work with you for longer and develop ideas together. So go ahead and mention us!

How to fundraise with us

You can find us on JustGiving and set up your fundraising campaign there – all the money you raise will be sent directly to us, so you don’t have to worry about managing it.

You can also fundraise for us on Facebook. All you need to do is set up a fundraising page or simply choose us each time you celebrate your birthday or mention fundraising for us (in Facebook updates and Instagram stories with the sticker “donate”).

OTR is a listed charity on Amazon Smile – if you select us as your charity and shop via smile.amazon.co.uk then we’ll receive money each time you shop!

You can support your fundraising efforts with text giving. Just ask your supporters to text “OTRBRISTOL 5” to 70085 to donate £5 to us (they can choose donations between £1 and £20 by changing the ‘5’ accordingly).

What you’ll need

If you plan to collect cash on our behalf: Please use an official OTR logo (with our charity number) and our sponsorship form. Please always make our charity number visible to your supporters. We follow the Code of Fundraising Practice.

Corporate activities and partnerships: Please always follow our brand guidelines and get in touch if you wish to fundraise for us as a charity, CIC or a corporate entity. If you wish to donate a % of your income from sales or other corporate activities, please get in touch with us to sign a mandatory corporate agreement

Make the most of social media: Post about your fundraiser, tag us and follow us! You can find our central accounts @otrbristol across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. You can connect with our fundraising accounts @otrfriends on Twitter and Instagram. Use the hashtag #OTRBristol in your posts.
