AIMS was founded in 1960 working to improve the way that women are cared for in pregnancy, birth and in the post natal 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 have no employees and no premises. 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!
Our new website is far easier to use that our old one, providing easy access to information and support for pregnant people, birth campaigners and health care providers. We are continuing to fundraise for it, and for this project we are using a crowd-sourcing page hoping to raise the £6000 that it cost to create the site.
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 set up a giving site to collect the proceeds of your hard work.
There are three ways that you can use this site.
Please don't forget to tick the Gift Aid box if you are eligible and share on Facebook and Twitter
Don't forget to tell us how it went! We would love to hear about it so please tell us your story and send any photos to email@example.com
If you would like to contact us to discuss your fundraising idea, please do so on the email address above. We look forward to hearing from you!
