This year we have become involved with Agents Giving and we love the work they do for the estate agency industry.
We know that many of our agency clients organise fundraising events throughout the year, so if you do this then why not consider becoming an Agents Giving Ambassador? That way all of your fundraising throughout the year for any charity of your choice, will be supported by the dedicated Estate Agents charity Agents Giving, giving you a much wider audience for your fundraising efforts.
For more information, you can contact the organisers here: http://agentsgiving.org/contact-us
As well as having the Agents Giving platform to promote your events, you can also apply for an Agents Giving grant fund, which exists to help towards the set-up costs of your larger fundraising events. That way you can maximise your fundraising so that more of the money you raise goes directly to your chosen charity.
The grant is to help with your event set-up costs, it is not a direct charity donation. Grant requests should be made in advance of your fundraising event and you can apply for a grant of up to £250 per agency branch, per year. Applicants will be given the Agents Giving logo to use in their marketing and PR and all they require from you is summary of your fundraising event along with a photo to help with promotion and any photos taken on the day/night. Fundraising events are for UK charities only, and the relevant charity registration number must be supplied upon application.

For any of you who’re struggling for a Christmas Party venue, why not book seats for the Agents Giving Charity Ball, which is in its 5th year and taking place at the Grosvenor Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London on 7th December 2018. If you decide to go along, we’ll see you there!
