Raise money

Looking at how to raise money for charity? Look no further! When you raise money for the RNLI, we’ll be with you every step of the way. We’ll not only give you ideas on how to raise money for charity, we’ll help you raise it too! It’s the least we can do.

Firstly, thank you for choosing to raise money for the RNLI. Of all the good charities to raise money for, we’re honoured and so very thankful that you have chosen to raise money to save lives at sea. Especially at a time when our income is down, and we need your support more than ever.

Our lifeboat crews are facing their toughest time ever. With more and more people needing their help, and too many still drowning, they have never been busier. If they have any hope of reaching people safely and in time, they need vital training, protective kit, well-equipped lifeboat stations and the fastest lifeboats. These things make all the difference when lives are on the line.

Your fundraising can help them weather the storm

Whether you’re looking for fundraising ideas or need help planning, promoting and running your fundraising event, we’ve got all the advice and resources you need on how to raise money for charity and smash your fundraising target!

There are also all kinds of organised fundraising events you can get involved with, from challenges and sporting events to more sedate coffee mornings and social events.

The best and easiest way to rally support, promote your fundraiser and collect online donations is to set up and share your online fundraising page. And, when the fun’s all over, we make it easy for you to pay in your fundraiser donations online for any sponsorship money you’ve collected in person.

We’re here to support you throughout every stage of your fundraising adventure, just as we’re always here for you should you ever need our help. However you choose to raise money for us, you can be sure you will make a lifesaving difference. Not only to the people we rescue and their loved ones, but to the crew and their families too.
