Thank you for fundraising for the Film and TV Charity!

We’re the industry charity for people that work behind the scenes in film, TV, and cinema – whether you’re a researcher or a writer, in casting or production, distribution or exhibition.

Your fundraising helps us offer our services to the people who need them most, and helps make your industry a better place to work for all.

From our Support Line, offering both financial and legal advice as well as free counselling, to our Bullying Advice Service, providing 1–1 support – your fundraising efforts for the Charity can help to support these incredible services, which are lifeline to so many.

Some fundraising ideas

There are so many ways you can get involved and have a great time while fundraising for us. Previously we’ve had people raise money by:

  • Walking long distances – Land’s End to John O’Groats is a fantastic challenge!
  • Live stream or live tweet a watch-along of your favourite shows with a donation link.
  • Writing books – you can dedicate a percentage of the sales to us.
  • Baking – we all love a bake sale, or even afternoon tea!
  • Creating a birthday fundraiser on Facebook
  • You can also take part in a challenge event!

Challenge events

Taking part in a challenge event is a great way to fundraise your own way while having an amazing life experience.

It might be for a personal achievement, a team-building exercise, or a celebration to mark your own milestones. Whatever it is, taking part in a challenge event is highly rewarding and fulfilling. Check out some of the places we have available.

Set up your fundraiser

Once you’ve decided to fundraise, how are you going to collect donations?

We suggest using the most popular options – either create a Facebook fundraiser, or a Just Giving page that you can share with family, friends, and on your social platforms. 

Send us your money

If you’ve raised money through a JustGiving page or a Facebook fundraiser, the money comes directly to us, so you don’t have to do anything else but spread the word!

If you’ve raised funds offline, you can send the money via our online donation form.

Or, if you’d prefer to send us a bank transfer by BACS, email us at [email protected] for more details.

And if you want to reach out with any questions or concerns you have about your fundraising, please get in touch by email.

Thank you for fundraising for the Film and TV Charity – it will make all the difference to supporting people working behind the scenes.
