For a long time, many of you have been telling us that you want to use In Kind Direct goods for fundraising events, such as on raffles or tombolas.
This has never been possible due to concerns from donor companies about brand protection and their wish for goods to be given to people who need them for free. For the majority of companies which donate to In Kind Direct, this is still the case.
However a small number of companies are happy for their goods to be used on raffles and tombolas. When we receive donations from these companies, these will be made available on our dedicated pages.
We hope that these goods help you to raise much needed funds. To ensure that we’re able to continue with the scheme, there are two things to remember:
- Only goods which are highlighted as being allowable, and which appear on the fundraising pages, can be used for fundraising. The vast majority of goods ordered from In Kind Direct must not be used for this purpose.
- Goods allowable for events fundraising must only be used at physical events rather than online. Goods can’t be auctioned.
