Fundraising for Community Together East Anglia

We rely on the generosity of funders and the public to support our work

As a registered charity (charity number 1004198) we rely on the generosity of funders and the public to support our work. Some suggestions of how you could pledge your support are suggested below.

Corporate Support

If your organisation is looking for a charity to support, it’s great to support local and give back to your community. It may be you are looking for a Charity of the Year or Charity of Choice, you are keen to support your staff with opportunities to volunteer, or you would like set up a regular giving scheme for employees. We also offer event sponsorship opportunities, and can provide lots of ideas of ways to raise vital funds in a fun way – after all it is FUNdraising!


If your school is looking for a charity to support, perhaps to host a bake sale, dress down day, or sponsored activity for example, then we’d love to chat to you. We are always happy to come into your school and chat to your students in an assembly or classroom environment and are also looking for schools to take part in our BeAFriend Penpal project.

Fundraising Challenges

Take on a fundraising challenge – perhaps you have always fancied jumping out of a plane, or running a marathon! Whatever your bucket list challenge is, we’d love to help you and raise vital funds at the same time.
