During the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation worldwide, all fundraising will need to be virtual for us all to stay safe and well. Please find some inspiration and exciting virtual fundraising options here.

In need of some motivation to keep your fitness resolution? Why not take part in one of these challenges and get sponsored for NAT: 

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 NAT and help bring about positive change in HIV. Who are you?

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 NAT. Everyone loves food, so what’s stopping you?


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. Why not try one of the following:
Dress Down Day: ask your colleagues to pay a small fee for the luxury of dressing casually for the day. Or if your workplace is already casual why not ask people to wear red or come in fancy or formal dress? Challenge Events: Putting a team together for one of our challenge events is great for fundraising as well as team-building. Contact our Corporate Partnerships Specialist, Chris Dye

 to find out how you can get involved or download our Corporate Pack.

We have our own eBay page that allows generous donors to sell their old stuff and donate some, or all, of the proceeds to NAT in three easy steps: 

  1. Sell your item, using the ‘Advanced Sell’ form on eBay
  2. Look out for the charity box below where you set your price - search for National AIDS Trust and select our page. You can even choose what percentage of your final selling price will be donated to NAT
  3. Three weeks after your item sells, Paypal will automatically collect the donation from you

Find out more about how to use eBay for Charity here.

Where your money goes

NAT 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 NAT’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 NAT:

  • 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.
