What are you (com)passionate about?
Decide on what you’d like to do and pick a target! It might be running a marathon in less than 5 hours, it might be asking for donations instead of birthday presents. It's completely up to you what you’d like to do and how much you’d like to raise - any amount helps and 100% of it will go towards fighting gender and caste-based discrimination in India and Nepal.
Many of the Karuna team have run our own fundraisers over the years, it’s something we’re passionate about.
We’re happy to help if we can - whether it’s posters, booklets or just a chat for fundraising inspiration, we’ll do whatever we can to support you, so that you can support others.
You can then set up a Facebook Fundraiser or a Just Giving account and page on Justgiving.com. They will let us know when you are done and they have loads of great tools that will help you let your friends know about your plan to fundraise for education, equality, and dignified livelihoods for those that need it most.
Let people know what you’re doing in any way you can. Social media can be a great force for good in promoting your fundraising. We’d love any photos or news or things we could share to help inspire others to do things too.
The more people that know, the more chance you’ll have of hitting your target and the more people you can help in India and Nepal.
Get started today and join the hundreds of people already finding new ways to use their skills and energy to support our projects - here’s some of them to help you feel inspired.
Join the Karuna Community!
Fundraising for Karuna makes a real difference to marginalised communities in India and Nepal. It’s also an opportunity to have fun! This year, more than ever, has shown us all the importance of connection. Connecting with friends and family to raise money for people facing poverty and discrimination helps to create a connection to others across this interconnected world, in this global community.
We believe everyone has something to contribute and potential is within us all. Perhaps fundraising is a motivator for you to reach a personal goal, or to help someone else reach theirs.
Selling hand-made masks
You could get busy making, like long-time supporter Rachel, who so far has raised over £5,000 selling hand-made masks to help keep people safe.
It is essential that Karuna can communicate with our supporters in order to ensure that the work we do is as effective as possible. Unlike other charities, we won’t bombard you. We will write to you twice a year with important updates on how your donation is making a difference and may call or email you from time to time to let you know about new events at Karuna. That’s it. You can change your preferences at any time by getting in touch.
