With all sources of funding under pressure, any fundraising we receive can make a real difference and allow us to continue to support people across Norfolk, Suffolk and neighbouring counties.

Despite being a well-established charity and helping nearly 2,000 people each year we only have a small number of regular fundraisers and supporters.  We are, of course, keen to grow this number and will always look for ways that to provide support and recognition in return.

We are especially keen to hear from kind individuals, social and community groups or businesses that would like to raise money themselves for our great charity.  The fundraising can take many forms but to give you a few ideas you can see how some supporters helped us in the past.

If you would like to discuss your fundraising idea with us please call our Marketing and Fundraising Manager Chris Elliott on 07825 130003 or email him chris.elliott@benjaminfoundation.co.uk

Why fundraise for us?

The issue of homelessness is not one which people readily associate with rural areas but it is a problem that is not restricted to big cities. Our work focuses on the 16 to 25 year old age group and we provide a roof over their head and a range of support to help these people back towards an independent life.

Our Events programme is an important part of our fundraising. At a time when some other sources of funding are under pressure these events are really important.
