Fundraise

Bake Sales Cakes

We want to make sure that anyone in the UK who stammers can find help and support. 

We've got a helpline but we know that many would prefer to use webchat. Help us get this off the blocks. We want to get open days up and running across the UK along with family days, where parents of children who stammer can meet other parents and, just as importantly, young children who stammer can meet others like them. 

We need to help support and expand the number of local groups and networks, get a national mentoring project going and develop our resources for schools, parents and the workplace. If you can, then do. See below for information on organising a fundraising event, raise money through sponsorship in a challenge event or other ways.

Sponsored events

We have guaranteed places in the Manchester 10K and the London 5K runs each year. We’ll add more places and events as we grow. Get in touch if you want a place in either of these, or if you get a place in any other challenge event – running, swimming, Tough Mudder, etc, let us know so we can send you some love (email us at fundraise@stamma.org). Set up your Just Giving fundraising page here. Or, if you're going old-school, use the form below to collect sponsorship off-line.

Each runner will get a running vest (we’ve got men's and women’s Scimitar vests in all sizes). Let us know your twitter handle and we'll give you a shout out. Or even write an article about why you are running, swimming or mountain climbing!

Or consider organising your own event to raise awareness and money – anything from a gig, a comedy night, scrabble competition, five-a-side football matches, art exhibitions, whatever floats your boat.  

Other ways to fundraise

Not up for a 5K, 10K or perfecting your lemon drizzle for a bake sale? There are plenty of ways you can raise money for the BSA through things you are doing already such as shopping, updating your social profile or streaming. We are charity that depends on donations from individuals to continue to create a better world for those who stammer. Take a look at the options below and let us know if we’ve missed any. 

Shopping

If you shop with Amazon, please make the BSA your chosen charity through Amazon Smile. Go to smile.amazon.co.uk and select “YourAmazonSmile” under the ‘Your account’ tab. You can search for and add “the British Stammering Association” as your chosen charity and we’ll receive a small amount whenever you shop through the smile.amazon pages. 

You can also raise money through Easy Fundraising. See this guide on how it works. After signing up and selecting The British Stammering Association as your chosen charity, you can shop with a variety of online retailers including Ebay, Expedia, John Lewis, M&S and through the Easy Fundraising site. A proportion of the money you spend will go to the BSA. 

A similar alternative service called Give As You Live does much the same thing: you register, search for The British Stammering Association as your chosen charity and then search for your favourite shops and raise some money for us in the process. Click here to find out more.

Social media

We are a registered charity and recognised by Facebook and Instagram. Perhaps you could make the BSA your chosen charity when you set up a birthday fundraiser?

Streaming 

Stream? Game? Game Stream? If you do, you can use Tiltify to raise money for the BSA while you’re Pwng noobs or trying to get your Sims to WooHoo or whatever. Be sure to let us know you’re doing it so we can give you a bit of love and promotion over our social channels (email fundraise@stamma.org or mention us on twitter @stammer)

Free Wills Month

October is Free Wills Month – if you are aged 55 or over you can have your will written or updated free of charge by using participating solicitors in selected locations across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The initiative is in partnership with a variety of charities and we hope you consider the BSA a worthwhile charity to support. To find out more, click here.  

Giving Through Work

Many employers allow individuals to give a proportion of their wage to their chosen charity (some even match it). Talk to your manager or HR team about how you can give to the BSA. 

Let us know what you fancy doing. Use the form below to register your event with us, go old school on your 10k run and we'll do our best to support you. Email fundraise@stamma.org
