Sponsorship form

If you do not want to raise funds online, then please find a downloadable Muscular Dystrophy UK sponsorship form below.

Please remember to get all sponsors to complete the form in full and return the form along with all the money you raise, so we can claim Gift Aid on your fundraising.

Gift Aid

The Gift Aid scheme enables charities to reclaim tax on donations, which means Muscular Dystrophy UK receives an extra 25p for every £1 donated - at no cost to you or your sponsors. If your sponsor is a UK tax-payer, their sponsorship money is eligible for Gift Aid, but remember to write their name clearly on your sponsorship form – we need their surname and initial; include their home address in full (including postcode) as well as the amount they personally donated. Don’t forget to tick the Gift Aid box, and don’t forget to send us the original forms, otherwise we cannot claim the Gift Aid. If sponsors donate via your online site, the site will do this for you.

Matched fundraising

Ask your employer about matched fundraising: many employers will donate an amount to your cause based on how much you have raised yourself, which is a massive incentive for all your friends and colleagues to sponsor you.
