Finding the money to keep the project going is one of the main challenges for Opening Doors London so we’d always be grateful if you’re able to fundraise for us in any way you’d like.

If you’d like to discuss your fundraising ideas with us, we’d be delighted to hear from you so please get in touch.

Raise a Glass campaign
A number of venues have raised money for us by supporting our Raise a Glass campaign. Running fun nights at their venues and using our ‘Raise a Glass’ coasters and collection tins to promote regular donations to Opening Doors London is a great way to engage with your local community to support our older LGBT* population. Full details of our campaign are available here.

Run 10km for Opening Doors London
London Frontrunners is an inclusive running club for LGBT* and LGBT*-friendly people who love running. Each year they organise The Pride Run 10K and your team could take part for Opening Doors London. If you register through their website and are interested in raising funds for Opening Doors London please let us know and we’ll help you to set up a fundraising page on social media. How about challenging other LGBT* staff and student networks to see who can compete the 10K fastest or raise most money for ODL.

Donations from your event
Supporters and members of Opening Doors London have had a lot of fun raising funds for Opening Doors London. There have been some very creative ways we’ve been delighted to promote on social media and contact local press about.

  • Collection tins at theatre events
  • Cycling from London to Paris dressed as Daft Punk
  • Sponsored head shaves
  • Asking for donations to Opening Doors London instead of wedding gifts

Please get in touch if you have any more ideas and would like to donate to help your local older LGBT* community.
