Offline Fundraising:
If you would like to organise to collect funds using a Galway Simon sponsorship card or collection bucket, please get in touch to arrange this.

Online Fundraising:
Set up your preferred fundraising platform (e.g. Facebook or iDonate) Here you can decide on a fundraising target and track your donations. Family and friends can also leave you notes of encouragement and goodwill.


When everything is wrapped up, don’t forget to return your money if in cash, coin or cheque form. If you have chosen to fundraise online, the funds will (in most cases) automatically be transferred into Galway Simon’s account. 

Your fundraising makes a big difference to the individuals and families who are at risk of, or experiencing homelessness in the West. We want to say THANK YOU!
