Welcome to your digital Project Trust Fundraising Pack to help you get started on your fundraising journey.
Fundraising to support your volunteering placement is an important part of your Project Trust experience and an opportunity to learn and develop skills for life.
We are here to support you every step of the way to help you achieve your target. Over the past 50 years we have successfully supported over 8,000 Volunteers. In the following pages, you will find advice, ideas and how-to guides for key parts of the fundraising process. Read through everything here and refer to it throughout your fundraising journey; it contains all the tools and information you will need to hit your target.
Bookmark this page! It is not accessible through the rest of our website or search engines – this information is for your benefit.
