Fundraising ideas you can try (post-lockdown!)

No matter who you are or what you like doing, there is something you can do to raise money for National AIDS Trust and help bring about positive change in HIV. Who are you?


A party host?

You can host a Big Garden Party and join a movement of people, workplaces and community groups UK-wide, all united by a single aim: to secure the rights of people living with HIV, and to end new HIV transmissions.

As we can now eat together in person again, we're asking you to get your friends, family or colleagues together to eat and drink and have fun for HIV rights!

Whether it's a small group in your garden or a park, or a larger party (depending on government regulations), we have an instruction pack that covers everything you need to set up your event.

You can sign up to host your own Big Garden Party by emailing fundraising@nat.org.uk

A foodie?

If you love to bake, you could hold a bake sale. If you’re a keen cook, you could invite friends over for dinner and ask them to make a contribution. Or if you’re mad about cheese and wine, you could host a tasting night, inviting people to bring a selection of the good stuff and a donation for National AIDS Trust. Everyone loves food, so what’s stopping you?

A professional?

The saying may be 'charity begins at home', but why not extend that sentiment to the workplace? Get your whole company involved, or just challenge your immediate colleagues
to take part in some fundraising. We know that this may look a bit different this year, but we can help with ideas and support for both safe face-to-face and virtual fundraising.

Contact our Partnerships and Philanthropy Specialist, Chris Dye  (020 7814 6726) to find out how you can get involved or download our Corporate Pack.

Where your money goes

National AIDS Trust is completely independent, so we can challenge injustice wherever we see it—always led by the issue and not where the money is. However, this also means that we rely on the generosity and dedication of our supporters.

All donated money goes towards continuing National AIDS Trust’s vital work in championing the rights of people living with and affected by HIV ​and campaigning for change.

Our work is only possible because of the generosity of our supporters.

Recent victories for National AIDS Trust:

  • A historic win, as the High Court overturned NHS England's refusal to consider funding PrEP.

  • Convincing the Government to change the way it undertakes benefits interviews to better assess fluctuating health conditions.

  • Challenging inaccurate media reporting and getting it changed.

  • Securing a u-turn from the Government on its plans to halve the amount it invests in preventing HIV.

  • Running a hugely successful campaign, 'Rock the Ribbon' for World AIDS Day, with an online reach of 180 million people.
