Fundraising

Like most charities, IWORK4ME is reliant on the generosity of those individuals and organisations who believe in us and support us, to ensure we grow and offer the maximum support we can to our clients. Every penny really does count and there are many simple ways in which you can help us.

If you would like further information on any of the following, please contact Sue Hope (Development Manager) on 07702 812987 or email sue@iwork4me.org.uk.

What better way to support IWORK4ME than by getting together with family and friends and organising your very own fundraising event. We have put together some ideas in our A-Z of fundraising which we hope offer inspiration! For further ideas or helpful information visit www.how2fundraise.org.

If you are organising an event and would like sponsor forms overprinted with the event details and emailed to you – just let us know!

The easiest way to support is by sending a donation by post. Please make cheques payable to IWORK4ME and send to IWORK4ME, c/o Autism Initiatives, 11 Granton Square, Edinburgh, EH5 1HX.

Regular donations, however small, ensure that we can plan ahead. If you are in a position to set up a regular payment, please download a standing order form here.

A special gift left in a will can make a significant difference to the support we can offer our clients in the future. If you would like to discuss leaving a gift in this way, please contact Sue Hope (Development Manager) on 07702 812987 or email sue@iwork4me.org.uk.

Donations from Corporate organisations are invaluable to us. We welcome the opportunity to discuss with Companies the possibility of partnerships which offer both financial support, but also an opportunity to promote to a wider audience the work that we do. A great way of doing this is through chosen charity of the year status which enables employees to get involved with our work and learn directly from our clients the challenges they face when considering self-employment.

Are you a member of a Rotary Club, an Inner Wheel Club or a Church related group? Could we come and talk to your group about what we do? If so, we would love to hear from you.

We are indebted to the following organisations for their belief in our vision and the financial support they have lent to IWORK4ME:

Big Lottery Fund (Awards for All & Investing in Ideas); The Jill Franklin Trust; Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland (Henry Duncan Awards); The Rozelle Trust; Saints & Sinners; Scottish Government Autism Development Fund.

We work in association with:
Artspace2Let; Autism Initiatives; Autism Ventures Scotland; City of Edinburgh Council; CoSSPA; FAIR; Gallery on the Corner; Grampian Opportunties; Intowork; NAS; Space Artworks.
