Fundraising & Sponsorship Committee

Committee Members: Tom Clements.

How can you help?

Donations

Any donation however small or large is very welcome.

Goods or services can also make a valuable contribution to our fundraising efforts. Auctions and raffles are a feature of all our social events so we are always on the lookout for auction items and prizes. Companies can also consider giving a discount to Taverners - this helps us grow our membership by making membership more attractive and can provide a boost to your business.

Events

Perhaps your club or business could organise a Taverners’ themed event. A collection or raffle in aid of the Taverners could be included as part of your annual dinner or prize giving. We can provide marketing material, raffle tickets/envelopes and help with sourcing prizes.

Corporate/Club Challenges

Would your teammates or workmates be interested in raising funds for a specific cause? While a specially adapted minibus at nearly €50,000 is a big ask for a single group perhaps you could get together with all the clubs in your league or a number of companies in your industry with the common goal of purchasing a bus. Remember we also provide sports wheelchairs which come in at a much more affordable €2,000.

For companies activities like this can be an important team building exercise as well as demonstrating the company’s commitment to corporate social responsibility. Sports clubs might try and spice things up a little by competing to see who can fund a wheelchair quickest or who can fund the most wheelchairs in one season. We will happily provide marketing collateral for these initiatives.

Business Partners

We rely on the continuing generosity of our sponsors and business partners. We gratefully acknowledge this charitable support and are always looking for new partners to participate in our events and initiatives which can offer ready-made hospitality opportunities. We provide receipts for all donations and acknowledge the help and support we receive in all our publications.

We are currently on the lookout for a number of corporate partners to help sponsor major events and we are also looking for a brand sponsor. If you feel this would be of interest to your company please contact Tom Clements on 087 2492951.
