AIMS was founded in 1960 working to improve the way that women are cared for in pregnancy, birth and in the postnatal period. Since then we have helped many thousands of women - hence our 'strapline':
There for your mother,
Here for you,
Help us to be there for your daughters.
We are a volunteer-run charity with no premise. We are supported by one part-time employee, but our work is mainly carried out by volunteers. So, although we keep our cost very low, we do rely on our membership subscriptions, publication sales, events and donations to cover all we do. Every penny counts - thank you for your support!
Giving up a little of your spare time to raise funds for AIMS can be really rewarding. So, however you want to help, we hope that the following ideas will give you inspiration! If you need more information or help please email email@example.com.
The one idea on this list which has the potential to raise hundreds of pounds is being sponsored - in particular to do something VERY daring like a parachute jump, or something VERY energetic like a cycle ride or a marathon. If you don't fancy it yourself, maybe another member of your family or a good friend would do it for you! AIMS will help with your publicity.
We can't wait to hear about your fundraising! Please do email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you have planned, how it went or for support.
We have changed to use Virgin Money Giving because MyDonate which we had been using is closing at the end of June 2019. We have selected them as they are also a non-profit organisation and have the lowest charges (2%) whilst also providing a service which manages gift aid on donations made through them.
