Do something out of the ordinary and jump out of a perfectly good aeroplane. A Charity Skydive is the most popular way of experiencing our sport. You can jump for whatever charity you wish.
If you would like to jump for one of our associated charities, they set the rules regarding how much money has to be raised if you are planning on jumping for "free". The minimum amount of money to be raised could be anything from £395. Normally this involves a £70 deposit and the balance for the skydive being paid on the day of your jump. If you have a shortfall in the minimum amount of sponsor money to jump for free, you can make up the difference yourself.
If the charity is not associated with us, you may have to contact their fundraising department and tell them of your plans and they will give you guidance on how to proceed.
You may want to raise money for a local event or for a friend in need. In this case, you just book your skydive and start fundraising. We have a generic sponsor form here.
Gift Aid. Add an extra 25% to your donations for free.
Fundraising has been made a lot easier with social media to spread the word of you fundraising intentions.
Donors can donate online via Just Giving, Virgin Money Giving, Every Click to name but a few. If you are a tax payer, you can "Gift Aid" your donation which means your donation is increased by 25% or more. Every £10 you donate, the charity gets an extra £2.50 making it £12.50. Higher taxpayers potentially get more money donated.
