Fundraising and Campaigning .................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Age UK Leeds has relied on income from contracts and service level agreements which are specific to individual services. In these difficult times we are looking more towards diversifying our income streams and this includes charitable donations to support our work in Leeds.

Age UK Leeds takes part in various local and national campaigns throughout the year. These campaigns focus on issues that are directly relevant to older people and aim to make life better for older people – e.g. issues like Winter Warmth, Falls Awareness etc.

Income from personal donations provides valuable income: the addition of Gift Aid helps us to maximise the value to the charity for the benefit of older people in Leeds. We offer fundraising events in Leeds to provide volunteers an opportunity to fundraise in a fun and meaningful way. We are encouraging corporate sponsorship of our services or activities in Leeds.

If you would like to know about any part of our fundraising campaigning please call 0113 203 1103.

In 2013 we will be focussing on raising funds Information and Advice and Befriending. If you would like to run an event in aid of Age UK Leeds, we would be delighted. If you want to run a marathon, organise a coffee morning or take part in any challenge we can support your efforts. Legacies make a huge difference to our work in Leeds. If you are thinking of making a gift in your will please let your solicitor know you would like to support Age UK Leeds work. We promise to use your legacy to support people in later life in Leeds. Monthly giving is a convenient way to give regularly to support our work. You can plan your giving and we can plan more effectively for the coming year.
