GET INVOLVED

Embrace FARM are always looking for new donors, fundraising initiatives and supporters who want to ‘Get Involved’ with Embrace FARM and help in any way, big or small! To raise funds for Embrace FARM you or your family or club could seek to be sponsored for practically anything, whatever your age or level of fitness there is a fundraising event for you! Holding an event can also be a memorial to your loved one in their name.

ORGANISE AN EVENT

  • Walk, Run, Swim, Cycle or even try something more daring like Skydiving/climb a mountain.
  • Organise a football / hurling / rugby / soccer tournament.
  • A Pub Quiz, Race Night or Talent Contest
  • Or why not try a Golf Day, Cake Sale, Coffee Morning or Bag Pack?
  • If you’re feeling ambitious, aim high & hold a fundraising Auction, Charity Night or Ball
  • Simply find an event near you that you’d like to do, enter, and then let us know.
  • Holding your own event is a great way to get everyone together, have some fun and raise some money.
  • Ask your family and friends to get involved and use their skills and network of contacts to help you plan and raise awareness of your fundraising activity.

REGISTERING YOUR EVENT

Embrace FARM is regulated by the Charity Regulator, therefore we must ensure that all our ‘Third Party Fundraisers’ agree to be bound by the rules laid out by this governing body. Therefore, we MUST know about your event!

Prior agreement MUST be obtained from Embrace FARM before any individual, group or organisation undertakes any fundraising activity, i.e. please register your event with Embrace FARM office by phone 085-7709966 or by emailing embrace.FARM@gmail.com

It is vital that we know people are collecting money in our name for several reasons. Unfortunately, there are people out there who collect money under false pretences, so we must be aware of all fundraising carried out by our true and honest supporters.

On registering your event please have the following details to hand:
  • Name of fundraising event e.g. Charity Cycle / Table Quiz
  • Name, address, phone number, email address of the main organiser
  • Date & time of the event
  • Location of the event
  • Items needed from Embrace FARM
How Embrace FARM can support you in your fundraising:

Please contact Embrace FARM for any help and advice or to discuss any ideas you may have. We can provide you with the following promotional material for your event as required:

  • T-shirts
  • Posters
  • Balloons
  • Sponsorship cards
  • Collection Buckets
  • Lodgement slip for proceeds raised
  • The Embrace FARM logo (via e-mail)

Embrace FARM can provide a letter on headed paper confirming that you are indeed holding a fundraiser for us.  Permits are required from A Garda Siobhan if you are collecting in a public place.  The regulations are getting stricter now for charities regarding fundraising, so we would really appreciate your assistance with this.

NB: Where all the proceeds of a fundraiser are not coming to the Embrace FARM (e.g. the funds are being split between Embrace FARM and another group) then the split (50/50 or whatever) must be made clear when registering and advertising the event.  It is essential to provide complete transparency when fundraising.
