Fundraise for us

Fundraising helps us make a real, valuable difference for dogs and the list of ways you can raise money is endless. Why not try a 'bring and buy sale', a balloon race, a barbecue, a bazaar, a book safe, a breakfast pasty, a 'nearly new' sale, a new year's eve dance/party, a netball tournament or a non-uniform day?

Funds raised can be donated online via our Virgin Money Giving page.

Alternatively, any event you decide to hold can be set up with its own online donation page via Virgin Money Giving.

Easy Fundraising

The Kennel Club Charitable Trust is now registered with Easy Fundraising. To raise funds, customers simply shop online as usual but through the Easy Fundraising website. You don’t have to pay anything extra but a percentage from each purchase is donated by retailers to your chosen cause.

Let us know!

If you are hosting an event and would like to raise money for the trust, please email The Kennel Club Charitable Trust and let us know what you are planning on doing, so we can say thank you and help you raise even more money!

Leaving a legacy

A dog’s love is unconditional, and the comfort and joy they bring to people’s lives is beyond measure. We depend on them for their loyalty and companionship, but let’s not forget they depend on us too.

The Kennel Club Charitable Trust relies purely on donations and legacies. Therefore, it is vital we receive donations from our supporters in order to fulfil the trust’s objectives, which make a huge difference to dogs’ lives.

If you have a strong commitment to the health and welfare of dogs, leaving a legacy in your will is a special way to show your commitment to dogs and to ensure your contribution helps to make a difference in the future.
