What fundraising are we doing in 2022?
The pandemic is still affecting the world around us, and even though, thanks to vaccinations, we can have some semblance of normal life where churches can once again meet, the idea of asking our members to go out and knock on doors to face the public and ask for cash donations is still troubling.
We talked to many of our church supporters, our agents, pastors, and board members and explained the situation. And together we have concluded that it is too soon to restart door-to-door collections again in 2022. The consensus is to wait for better days. We are still in pandemic induced uncertain times and do not want to put anyone at risk.
The 2022 ADRA Appeal is focussed on fundraising in our churches.
A special edition of our IMPACT NEWS was distributed together with a donation envelope in March. Don’t forget about the ADRA home tins – where our members give the ADRA tins a good home and can dispose of their small change during the year to support ADRA.
We are also encouraging our supporters to setup a Direct Debit with ADRA to help us plan our work in the best way possible. Just £10 a month, with GiftAid applied, will give us a healthy £150 a year.
The BIGGEST new challenge….
One of the biggest challenge we are facing for the 2022 ADRA Appeal is the fact that HSBC, our bank, no longer accepts paying-in slips to make cash deposits. We are therefore forced to change how we ask you to send the money raised to ADRA in 2022.
We encourage our agents to discuss with their church treasurers to use the church bank account to bank ADRA fundraising money or, alternatively, use your personal bank account. Once the money has cleared in the account we ask you to arrange for a transfer either online, by post or by telephone. See the details in the “How to transfer funds to ADRA” document.
