Help us to spread the word
The BDA Benevolent Fund has been in existence for over 135 years to ensure that dentists are supported in times of need. Our ultimate aim is to reach more people. General awareness – especially amongst younger dentists – is still too low. We need dentists in all areas of the UK to help spread the word.
If you know someone who is finding it hard to cope, make sure they know about us. If we can help, we will. Share, like and keep up to date with our efforts on the BDA Benevolent Fund’s Facebook page
Have FUN in aid of the Benevolent FUNd
Whether you run or cycle, sing or dance, bake a cake or shake a cocktail – you can have fun and raise money for us. Whatever you chose to do, your efforts will make a massive difference to dentists’ lives. We receive no government funding, so we rely entirely on people like you to continue our work supporting dentists and their families whenever they are in need.
Three steps to fundraising
We can help you fundraise, whether you’re doing something on your own or taking part in an organised fundraising activity. If you’d like help with your fundraising efforts, just let us know; our Trustees will help you. We can provide you with leaflets, Gift Aid envelopes, buckets and moral support.
1. Choose your fundraising activity
There are many ways to raise money, from running a marathon, trying to break a world record, to organising a cake or car boot sale.
2. Set up a fundraising page
Once you have set it up you can share it with all your friends and family – either by email or on Facebook – and ask them to support you.
3. Paying in your sponsorship money
To pay in your sponsorship money, please contact our team on 020 7486 4994 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
How the money you raise makes a difference
What one of our beneficiaries said sums it up:
“Thank you for making the last year possible. Your support has meant our lives have not spiralled to depths we may have not been able to recover from. It has meant we have gradually been able to rebuild ourselves as a family”
