Fundraising for us? FAQs below

Have a birthday, graduation, or anniversary, coming up? Create a Special Occasion page and ask family and friends to make a meaningful gift to Reality Gives on your behalf.

Want to make a difference with your upcoming athletic event? Create your personalised Athletic or Endurance Event and ask for support during your training.

Are you hosting a bake sale or summer BBQ to support our educational programs? Create Your Own personalized campaign and provide details for your event. The ideas are endless but we have listed some options above.

We would usually suggest create an online fundraising page in the first instance. To create a fundraising page, you’ll need a valid email address and physical address to register, to update the content on your fundraising page, and to upload a photo or video to your page.

We would recommend Virgin Giving as the platform to use for your fundraising page but this is by no means the only option.

The funds you raise through your fundraising campaign will go towards supporting Reality Gives’ educational programs.

The funds raised can be a general donation or support either the Youth Program or the School Program. Alternatively it is possible to speak to the team and discuss the option to sponsor a teacher’s salary, stationary items or other urgent needs the team may have.

Use it as a platform to express your passion for education and how by raising funds to support Reality Gives’ programs you will be making a difference. Your page should features a text section, profile photo or video, social commenting wall and social share links.

Having trouble updating the text section? Highlight your favourite program and why it’s important to you. Use your page to celebrate a birthday, wedding, graduation, or holiday and explain why your friends should make gifts to Reality Gives via your page.

By updating your page and sharing in your own words will make your page feel more authentic and make people excited to support you!

Some style hints:
• Try not to type your story in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. This makes the page difficult to read and is the web equivalent of SHOUTING.
• Make sure to spell check your page before publishing.
• Start a new paragraph after every few sentences. Your page will be much easier to read and your donors will thank you!

Your fundraising page features a standard donation tool, which enables you to raise funds to support Reality Gives’ programs. Making a gift — and a difference — is as easy as clicking a button.

OUR FUNDRAISERS

“My visit to Dharavi with Reality Tours and Travel moved me so much I was compelled to start my own fundraising campaign for them when I got home. 
Reality Gives is a fantastic charity and I’ve seen first hand how the funds raised are directly helping the children to get the education they deserve.
The children need us more than ever at this time – please support them.”
Wendy Petersen

“After leaving our visit to Dharavi in Mumbai, I felt so much compassion, empathy, and hope for the tight knit community we were so warmly welcomed into. There is a lot of opportunity to give back and make a huge impact for the youth living in this community. Education is so important for helping students find their passion & chase opportunities. My heart is full knowing we were able to support them & open the doors for their futures”
