Business Fundraising

There are many ways in which your business or organisation can get involved in supporting the ME Association and the work that we do.

How about holding a specific event?  A fun-day out? Are you having a Christmas dinner or office party?  Make the ME Association your charity of choice for donations.

You could encourage your staff in their own fundraising efforts. Perhaps by sponsorship or match-funding their efforts.

Why not have a dress down day? Or perhaps ‘Go Blue for M.E.’ – like the staff of the Inverness office of Fujitsu (pictured above) perhaps?

Payroll Giving

If you don’t do it already, set up Payroll Giving so that your staff can make charity donations straight from their wages. You can find out more by visiting the UK Government website, or speaking with Gill Briody at our head office via email or phone (01280 818964, between 9.30am and 3.00pm).

Help and Support

We’re here to help you turn your idea into reality – whatever it is you want to do – and we can give you the support you need to get started, and help promote your event, if you would like us to do so.

Whatever you decide, if you choose to raise funds for the ME Association, be sure to take plenty of photographs – we’d love to be able to report your event on our website, social media, and in our members magazine, ME Essential.

Helen Hyland, our Fundraising Manager, is here to help you every step of the way, and can also provide you with a ME Association fundraising pack if you require one.

You can contact Helen by email, or by phone, (01280 838964).


When you have decided on an activity, please consider registering it on Justgiving. It’s a convenient platform that allows you to share your event or challenge among family, friends, and throughout the wider community.

Start fundraising with JustGiving

You can easily monitor how much money you are raising – can keep everyone updated – and monies raised will be automatically donated to the ME Association.
