Fundraising ideas

There are lots of great ways you can fundraise for Housing for Women, and all the money you raise will help our services support women in London and make a huge difference to their lives.

Whether you prefer to go it alone, or get your friends involved, here are some ideas to get you started.

Amazon Smile

If you shop on Amazon, you can support our work at the same time by using Amazon Smile. You’ll enjoy the same shopping experience and there is no cost to you.

How does it work?

Every time you purchase a product on Amazon Smile, you can choose Kinship to receive a donation of 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns, and shipping fees).

Sign up through Amazon Smile today so that your purchases support us to be there for women who need us.

How to use Amazon Smile

  1. Go to to log in using your Amazon details or create an account.
  2. You will be prompted to select a charitable organisation to start shopping.
  3. Search for and select “Housing for Women” in the “Pick your own charitable organisation” and pick Housing for Women from the results.
  4. Confirm that you will need to start shopping from to ensure that your purchases are eligible. Tick the box next to the statement by clicking it. Then click “Start Shopping”.
  5. After this you will be redirected to main Amazon homepage with confirmation that your eligible purchases will now support Housing for Women.

And just remember to visit when shopping on Amazon and all your eligible items will raise donations for Housing for Women.

Bake Sale

At work, home, or school, a bake sale is everyone's favourite way to donate a little to support a good cause. Put your baking skills to the test and host a coffee morning at work, or get your friends and family involved in a bake-off competition to see who is Star Baker.

Get outside for some fresh air and fitness and help raise money for vital services. Choose a challenging distance or route and ask friends and family to sponsor you to complete your miles.
Pub quiz

Do you have a favourite local? If so, you could speak with your pub Landlord about hosting a dedicated quiz night where the cost of entering is donated to us. This is great way to bring groups of friends together and raise awareness about Kinship in your community.
