Fundraise

Do your own thing

From arranging a coffee morning to putting on a gig, there are endless ways you can raise money to help people out of homelessness and into a home of their very own.

We have a range of exciting events to suit all passions and skillsets, but if you would prefer to hold your own fundraiser for us then we are here to support you every step of the way!

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Auction
Ceilidh
Head shave
Murder Mystery night
Pamper evening
Raffle
Sell your skills, such as DIY or ironing
Toy sale
Zoom quiz

Contact Jo in our Fundraising team at joanne.armstrong@oasiscommunityhousing.org or download our Fundraising Pack for more ideas and advice on how to get your own event up and running.

Fundraise in celebration

Birthdays, weddings and other special celebrations are great opportunities to spend time with family and friends and spreading that love can offer renewed hope to someone facing homelessness.

A Facebook birthday fundraiser is easy to set up and is automatically posted to your timeline, letting everyone know what matters to you on your special day without having to directly ask for donations.

Not doing Christmas cards this year? Why not invite family and friends to do the same and donate via an online fundraising page, such as Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving. Donations come straight to Oasis Community Housing, so there is no extra admin for you.

Looking for wedding gifts with a difference? Prezola is the UK’s favourite wedding gift registry where you can list charity donations alongside homeware, experiences and subscriptions. Prezola works with over 100 of the UK’s leading charities including Oasis Community Housing. You’ll find us in the Charity – Humanitarian & Culture section.

We’d love to share your special day with you, so thank you in advance for thinking of us!

Fundraise in memory

Fundraising in memory of a friend or loved one is a special way to celebrate their life while also making a real difference to the lives of people who have no one else, and nowhere to turn.

Leaving a gift in your Will makes a life-changing difference, not only to thousands of people facing homelessness right now but for future generations as well. Every gift, large or small, has a lasting impact. Contact our Head of Fundraising Mike Salt if you would like to find out more about making a charity Will donation or making a major gift.

A charity collection at a funeral, or asking for donations instead of flowers, is what some people choose to do – especially if your loved one had a cause that was close to their heart. The funeral director is usually able to arrange this for you. We are able to provide Gift Aid envelopes, please get in touch if this would be helpful.

Doing an event in memory of your loved one is an amazing tribute to them. Visit our Events page for what we currently have planned or set your own challenge – please do let us know if we can help with anything. Contact Jo on 07704 168367 or at joanne.armstrong@oasiscommunityhousing.org
