Plan your own event
If you have an idea of a fundraiser you want to organise, whether it’s a baking competition, quiz night or maybe even a fashion show, we would love to hear from you. We can help you plan the event or if you want to do something but haven’t thought of an idea yet, get in contact and we can help you come up with something!
EveryClick is the search engine that donates to charity every time you use it. Visit www.everyclick.com/uk/birminghamsettlement to make EveryClick your homepage. It doesn’t cost anything for you to use, but each time you click a search result, EveryClick will make a donation to us.
Our corporate supporters offer invaluable support, not just financially but through giving up their time. Volunteers help us with decorating whilst others give up their time to mentor our staff, sharing their expertise and knowledge. We are very flexible and can work around the needs and time commitments of you and your staff so whether you have a team who want to volunteer for a day, you want to hold a raffle or perhaps you have space for a donation collection bin for our shops in your office, please get in touch. If you or your company is interested in getting involved with Birmingham Settlement and building links with your local community, we would love to hear from you.
Trusts and foundations
The generosity of Trusts and Foundations is vital in enabling us to continue offering our services to the people of Birmingham. If you are or know a trustee of a charitable trust or foundation please do get in touch or nominate Birmingham Settlement for a grant.
If you are a member of a local rotary club, round table or similar group, we would be delighted to hear from you or to talk about our work to you and your members.
