What did you find most effective?
What did you use to fundraise?
I ran a club night called 'Sri-Skanka' & applied to University and local grants

Amount Raised:
100% of the Placement Fee

Placement:
Sri Lanka, June 2018

What did you find most effective?
Telling people about the organisation and the kind of volunteer work I would be doing.

What are your top tips?
 • People are generally happy to contribute funds when they know it's a mental health placement. So emphasizing the facilities and communities you will be volunteering in is a good idea. Be enthusiastic when describing the SLV.Global placement and talk to everyone that seems interested. Lecturers, other students and employers are a great place to start!
• Make an eye catching/well designed flyer/poster for the event.
• Sharing the fundraiser on social media and asking your university president and or psychology society to also share it on social media can really help.
