Fundraising

The Goal

During 2020 we aim to raise £150,000. Our target is to raise £20,000 of this through our fundraiser supporters. The funds raised will contribute to planning studies, project management costs and legal fees, which are essential for allowing the project to progress.

 

As a Gravitate fundraiser you will become part of a community that is working together to make a real change. Together, we will make our mark on the regions adventure sports landscape and create a truly unique outdoor experience for everyone to enjoy.

 

There are many benefits to becoming a Gravitate fundraiser; you will be eligible to receive an invitation to our exclusive VIP pre-opening event, a custom Gravitate jersey and a fundraising champion certificate. These are limited in number to only 40 so you’ll need to be quick!

 

Please join us in helping to turn this vision into a reality. If we work together as a community, we can do this! Here are the ways you can help raise funds either as an individual or as a team:

 

Fundraising as an individual

Setting personal challenges can be a great way to achieve your goals, whether it be a fitness goal or some other personal target. Doing it publicly as part of a fundraiser will increase the likelihood of you achieving your target, because you are doing it for more than just yourself. Putting yourself out there in front of your family and friends can be a great motivator, especially when you are doing it for a good cause.

 

As an individual fundraiser, when you reach the first milestone of £500, you will be awarded with a ‘Gravitate Fundraising Champion’ certificate. You’ll also receive a custom Gravitate jersey and an invitation to our VIP pre-opening event.

 

If you go on to raise over £1000, you will be elevated to the status of ‘Gold Anodised Fundraiser’, which also comes with it’s own special certificate. For every additional £500 raised above the first £500 milestone, you will receive an extra VIP invitation and extra custom jersey to share with your family and friends.

Fundraising as a team

Do it with your friends, classmates, family or work colleagues. Regardless of who you team up with, fundraising as a team can be fantastic fun and a great way to get to know people as you work towards achieving a common goal. Set a target, achieve it, celebrate!

 

As team fundraisers, when you reach the first milestone of £500, you will be awarded with a ‘Gravitate Fundraising Champion’ certificate. You’ll also receive one custom Gravitate jersey and an invitation to our VIP pre-opening event.

 

If you go on to raise over £1000, you will be elevated to the status of ‘Gold Anodised Fundraiser’, which also comes with it’s own special certificate. For every additional £500 raised above the first £500 milestone, you will receive additional VIP invitations and additional custom jerseys to share with your team members.
