Fundraising

Raising money for charity is a key element of Walk the World. Did you know that in 2017 we raised £155K / US$220K for local charities?

All participants are asked to donate a minimum of £10/US$15 to their office charity (amount might differ in other locations, see local communications for details). To make a donation, visit your walk on the Walks page. 

As well as making a donation, why not raise even more money, either as a group within your office, or in your spare time? If you are walking a challenging distance, you could ask friends and family for sponsorship.

 

 

Raise over £100/US$150 (or local amount communicated) and take an additional day off work!

If your office is raising money through CrowdRise or JustGiving, you can visit your walk page listed under Walks and click “Set Up Your Fundraiser”. This will enable you to set up your own fundraising page and collect money from friends and colleagues. To claim your day off, simply show your fundraising total or donation to your line manager and book a “Walk the World” day on e-days or your local HR system.

Capturing fundraising totals

Keeping track of how much we’ve raised collectively is a little bit complicated! To ensure everything is counted, please make sure your walk leader knows your total no later than 29 June (this only applies if you have not raised money or donated through the official CrowdRise or JustGiving links on your walk page).
