Fundraising Placement Fees

If you're heading out to India this year with DiA we're here to support you all the way in raising those vital placement fees as well as promoting the great work you will be doing.

. 

For 2013/14 the minimum fundraising donation for a 2-month placement is £900. Most of the Committee have volunteered with DiA in India so know just how daunting raising these placement fees can be. However, as long as you are enthusiastic, hard working, and creative, fundraising can be relatively easy and great fun!

. 

Once selected, DiA will send you an in-depth fundraising pack designed to get you started with numerous tips, advice, and ideas. Whilst this pack contains a lot of ideas it is by no means exhaustive! Log on to the internet and look through fundraising and charity websites or research at your local library for fresh ideas and advice. More importantly, think of new and unique ideas. Successful fundraisers use their own talent and skills, input their own style, tailor fundraising to their personal circumstances, and think outside the box.

Ongoing Support from DiA

As soon as you accept a DiA placement you have fundraising support and encouragement from all of the DiA Committee. In particular, our Fundraising Events Officer who will be in touch regularly with new ideas, inspiration, and motivation to stop fundraising the placement fee feeling like a burden. This year DiA is lucky enough to have not one but two Fundraising Officers so there will be additional support from our Trusts & Grants Fundraising Officer.

.

We hope you will find fundraising enjoyable and a great learning process (a number of past DiA volunteers have even gone on to a career in fundraising!).
