Part 3 – How Grant Applicants Can Help The Ulysses Trust
Here are some simple actions you can take us to help to help others like you in the future:
Give As You Live
Every time you buy something online you could be supporting The Ulysses Trust at no cost to you through Give As You Live. Visit the Give As You Live website and register as a supporter of The Ulysses Trust – it won’t cost you a penny, but it means that thousands of online retailers will donate to us when you buy goods through their website.
Here’s how you can help:
- When buying travel, accommodation or anything for your expedition on-line, use Give As you Live.
- Tell your Expedition members, and others in your unit, and get them to tell their friends and families to sign up and use Give As You Live for all their on-line shopping. If they do so via the link on our website, we’ll get an additional £5 donation as soon as they register!
Fund Raising Events
If members of your unit or their friends and families are thinking of taking part in an event, such as running a Half Marathon, or any other activity which lends itself to sponsorship, encourage them to make The Ulysses Trust their chosen charity. It’s easy to set up on-line donations using our preferred platform, Virgin Money Giving. For more guidance, click here to visit our Fundraising Events page.
By advising the Trust of the main suppliers (for example travel, equipment, insurance) to your expedition, you can help us identify opportunities for discounts or sponsorship in the future.
If you think we have helped you, spread the word!
