Fundraising, Donations and Legacies

Fundraising, Donations and Legacies

We have a full structured programme of activities for girls and young women aged 5 - 30, enabling them to develop their potential and to make a difference to the world. In order to do this, we rely on membership subscriptions, grants, and donations. Without this funding, we simply would not be able to do the work that we do.

Fundraising 

Our valuable fundraisers help us to provide the best opportunities for more girls and young women. Fundraising locally can support specific and local needs on the ground, such as unit activity equipment. At a regional level, fundraised income can help with training for leaders or improve challenges and badges for young members. Each amount of money raised, big or small, helps change the lives of girls' across North West England. With your support, we can help provide new experiences to over 60,000 members.

Donations

The generous donations that we receive every year help us to continue to provide great opportunities for all of our members. From helping our adult members to gain new qualifications, to supporting girls and young women on their first trip away from home, we simply wouldn’t be the organisation we are today without the public’s help. If you’d like to make a donation either from yourself or on behalf of a loved one, we have a variety of different options. Contact us today on 01772 791947 or send an enquiry through our ‘Get In Touch’ tab for more information.

 

Legacies 

Legacies are a gift which is left in a will; this can include money or property. You can generously mention charities in your will. Legacy donations allow us to continue providing the support and activities that we do. Recent legacies have been used to help put on once-in-a-lifetime events for our young members and to set up new units in areas of deprivation. Your legacy gift will mean that we will still be able to support girls and women in years to come.

Subscriptions

Each Girlguiding member pays an annual subscription fee. £6.50 of this fee goes towards the investment in the future of Girlguiding within the North West Region. Without subscriptions, we couldn’t support our incredible volunteers to change girls’ lives and inspire them to be their best – so thank you for continuing to support and believe in our work.
