Whether you run or cycle, sing or dance, bake a cake or shake a cocktail – you can have fun and raise money for the RAF Benevolent Fund.

Team from 99 SquadronMembers of 99 Squadron who completed a 100-mile trek along the South Downs to support our work

Whatever you chose to do your efforts will make a massive difference to people's lives.

We get no government funding, so we rely entirely on people like you to continue our work supporting the men, women and children of the RAF family whenever they are in need.

Four steps to fundraising

There are lots of ways we can help you fundraise, whether you're doing something on your own or taking part in an organised fundraising activity. 

Here are four easy steps to follow:

1. Choose your fundraising activity

There are many ways to raise money, from running a marathon, trying to break a world record or organising a cake sale or having a car boot sale. Download our Fundraising Toolkit (PDF 1.51MB) which has lots of ideas and tips to help you with your fundraising.

2. Set up a fundraising page

It is really easy to set up an online fundraising page. Once you have set up your page you can share it with all your friends by email or on Facebook and ask them to support you.

3. Contact one of our regional fundraisers

We have a fantastic team of fundraisers based around the UK who can help you. They offer plenty of free advice and tips on how to raise money for the RAF Benevolent Fund.

4. Paying in your sponsorship money

To pay in your sponsorship money, please contact our fundraiser for your region.

How the money you raise makes a difference

The money you raise changes lives. 88p of every £1 you raise goes directly to our work supporting the men and women of the RAF, past and present.

We were there for Ryan Moorhouse, a gunner from the RAF Regiment, who was injured by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan. He was medically discharged from the RAF and we were there to help Ryan and his family. What Ryan said sums it up:

"The men and women of the RAF serve their country by joining up and serving on the frontline. Supporting the RAF Benevolent Fund helps us out a great deal, so you’ll be doing something for your country."

So remember - fundraising for the RAF Benevolent Fund is a great way of doing your bit to support those who keep our skies safe.
