If you would like to host an event (i.e. coffee morning, casual clothes day, car boot) or participate in an activity (sponsored walk or run) to raise donations for the PDREC and its work, we would love to hear from you.
Please contact us to discuss and arrange a fundraising pack and/or money tins for this purpose.
If your organisation has funds set aside for charitable purposes, especially in the areas of equality & diversity, community cohesion and/or hate crime, we would love to hear from you so that we can tell you more about the range of projects that we need financial support for.
Why to donate or fundraise?
The money you donate can help the PDREC in so many ways, for example by paying towards the following:
• £3.35 would answer one telephone call or email to PDREC to ensure BME individuals can speak to someone to get support and information
• £80 would pay for a casework session to provide advice, support and information individuals suffering from racial discrimination, harassment and victimisation
• £600 would pay for 1 days training around cultural awareness or prejudice reduction
• £5,000 would pay for an event such as anti-racism workshops in schools or community settings
• £25,000 would fund the services of a full-time specialised Race Equality Development Worker
• £45,000 would fund a one year project for example to support children and young people suffering from bullying, the negative effects of racism, isolation, identity issues, trauma from past events etc
We raise as much funding we can to support our projects through partnership agreements and grant aid, but with the financial climate and increased competition for funding available, we need to rely more on regular voluntary donations and legacies (gifts left in people's wills) to ensure the continuation of our vital work.
