Good Causes

Community Fund Raiser

Utility Warehouse launched a scheme a few years ago – very basic it was (but sophisticated now!), to help charities and good causes raise money.

So successful has it become that over 1,000 different organisations are now involved:

Football Clubs
Tennis Clubs
Guides and Brownies
Cub and Scouts
Darby & Joan Clubs
Rotaracts
Rugby Clubs
British Legions
Schools
Churches, Temples, Mosques & Synagogues

Plus lots more besides.

A small registration fee of £25 secures the opportunity to promote the full range of services to supporters of the organisation, then the company shares up to 5% ongoing commission with the organisation.

The organisation gets a website immediately, so supporters can sign up online, plus a CD and packed full of ideas of how to promote the Community Fundraiser to supporters, by email, letter, leaflets and posters.

Here’s part of the welcome page from the website

‘Thank you for supporting 10th XXXX  Brownies – you can help them to raise regular monthly income, which will make a very real difference.

    • Hi Roslyn,

      Thanks for your praise and question.

      It is not a question of being centred, but being aware of what is happening elsewhere, and how that might affect my business.

      Then write appropriately to reflect that.
