How much do I need to fundraise?
We’re asking you to aim to raise £100 to help care for Scotland’s animals. Be bold and set your goal, the more you raise, the more animals that can be cared for by the Scottish SPCA.
- £5 could help feed a hedgehog for 5 days
- £25 could help feed a red squirrel for five days.
- £50 could help feed a barn owl for ten days.
Every day, the Scottish SPCA responds to over 200 reports of animals in need. By raising vital funds, you’ll be helping ensure animals get the care they need.
How can I raise funds?
You could fundraise in your garden with your family, setup a socially distanced stall from your front door or host a virtual get together with your friends.
Once you decide how to fundraise, set up your fundraising page and then let your friends and family know how they can get involved and support you.
When you sign up, you will receive your digital fundraising pack which is packed full of useful resources to download and help you with your fundraising.
When can I start fundraising?
You can start fundraising as soon as you sign up. If you raise £100 or more on your fundraising page by Sunday 29 November, you’ll be automatically entered into a draw to win a chance of a behind the scenes tour at our wildlife hospital for two people.
How do my funds reach the charity?
All the money you raise on your fundraising page is transferred automatically to the Scottish SPCA.
