Asylum Welcome could not exist without our fantastic supporters. We rely on donations from our community in order to keep providing life-changing support to refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants. Asylum Welcome supports engaging and innovative events which tell people about the experiences of asylum seekers and refugees and raise funds for our charity. There are so many different ways to get involved.
We are truly grateful to all of our wonderful fundraisers!
Raise money to support local refugees by signing up for a fun challenge event and collecting sponsorship from friends and family. Challenge events are an excellent way to raise funds. You can register with one of the many events that are already happening, such as the Oxford Half Marathon, the Blenheim 7k, GO TRI Triathlon or Bike Oxford. We sometimes have charity discounted places so do check with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Or, you can set your own challenge – as Amia and Ellie did below!
If needed, we can help you set up a JustGiving page, provide you with text for your fundraising page, publicise your event, or provide sponsorship forms.
Hold a clothes sale, a quiz, a bake off or a book sale in your local community. The options are endless and we’d love to hear your ideas! Get in touch with us at
email@example.com and we can support you.
See below for some examples of the wonderful ways that our fundraisers have chosen to raise funds for us.

Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax-free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice. Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1 that you give will only cost you 80p; and, if you’re a higher rate tax payer, it will only cost you 60p.
It’s cheaper because it’s tax free – for example, a donation of £5 per month costs the basic rate tax payer £4.
