Charity fundraising is a key way that Youth Concern can increase its funds to enable it to continue supporting young people in the Aylesbury area when they need help most.

In these financially inauspicious times with Government grant cutbacks a constant threat to the survival of charity organisations, new means of raising vital revenue streams need to be identified.

Large national charities with big advertising budgets are able to gain awareness and public support by way of mail and television campaigns. However, it is much harder for small local charities operating at grass roots level to generate interest in their work.

Understanding that people lead busy lives, Youth Concern has looked for innovative ways of raising money which are easy to use and fit in with the daily lives of our supporters.

Fundraising methods include:

My Donate online Charity Donation, Shop2fundraise and Text Giving which use the internet or mobile phones to help raise valuable funds.
