Does your school/ church/ club organise fundraising events? Why not ask if they would like to support Brighton YMCA next time?
Do you pass by Waitrose, ASDA, Tesco or Sainsbury’s on your way home? Did you know that most supermarkets have Local Charity Schemes? If you nominate Brighton YMCA , we have a chance to get financial or volunteer support for a month or a whole year! Here’s an example of such a scheme.
Do your friends or family work for another company? Why not ask them if their employer runs nomination schemes? Last year alone we received £500 from two such schemes. You might find that companies like to prioritise those charities their employees are somehow linked with.
