Business Fundraising


Your business or organisation can be a vital link in helping to raise funds and awareness…

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

Payroll Giving is a tax free way for employees to donate to charity directly from their pay or pension. It must be done through an approved payroll giving agency – visit the UK Government website for more information.

  • The ME Association currently works with Charities Aid Foundation (Give as You Earn), Stewardship, and Giveall who are all approved agencies.
  • If you would like to speak to someone at the ME Association about payroll giving, please contact head office by phone (01280 818964 between 9.30am and 3.00pm), or by email.

Fundraise with JustGiving

If you choose to fundraise for a challenge, event or activity, please consider registering it on JustGiving.

  • It’s a convenient platform that allows you to easily share it with family, friends, and the wider community via email or social media for example.
  • You can easily monitor how much money you are raising – can keep everyone informed of your progress – and the funds that you receive will be automatically donated to the ME Association.
  • Just click the button above for more information, and please let Tony Britton, our fundraising manager, know when you begin fundraising. He has a wealth of fundraising experience and can lend support and advice if you need it.

Help and Support

Here to help you – every step of the way!

We’ll 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.

Tony Britton

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.

The ME Association

Please support our vital work

We are a national charity working hard to make the UK a better place for people whose lives have been devastated by an often-misunderstood neurological disease.

If you would like to support our efforts and ensure we are able to inform, support, advocate and invest in biomedical research, then please donate today.

Just click the image opposite or visit our JustGiving page for one-off donations or to establish a regular payment. You can even establish your own fundraising event.

Or why not join the ME Association as a member and be part of our growing community? For a monthly (or annual) subscription you will also receive ME Essential – quite simply the best M.E. magazine!
