What does 'Minimum Sponsorship' mean? For some events there is a minimum amount set to raise for the charity, this is so that we can raise as much as possible to continue our vital work. This may feel daunting but we have lots of hints and tips for raising as much as possible and our events team will be on hand to help you reach your target. If some of your minimum sponsorship is to be used to cover the costs your event (e.g. a trek or skydive) you must make your donors aware of this. If you have purchased your own place directly through the event organisers you do not have to raise a minimum amount, you can set your own target and fundraise as much as you can!
