Support the Coastguard Association

This is where you will find everything that you need to know about supporting the Coastguard Association.

We rely solely on your donations, legacies and membership subscriptions. All money raised via fundraising, events and collections helps us to help Coastguard personnel and their families in their time of need.

We pride ourselves in being able to provide financial support quickly to those who need it and have a positive impact during times of significant challenge.

How to support us?

There are many ways that you can help our charity support Coastguards in need. From signing up to being a member, making a donation to something more active like a sponsored event or  an unusual fundraising idea. But without your help we wouldn’t be able to provide assistance to those who are on call 24-hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year to respond to those in need at the coast and beyond.

Sponsored Events

So what can I do?   Well you can Bike Ride, walk, silence, swim, slim, head shave, parachute jump, the skies the limit!  There are numerous sponsored events you can do – and they are all a great incentive to try something new or to achieve a personal goal, as well as helping to support the Coastguard Association.

You can donate online via Paypal at: The Coastguard Association PayPal Donation

If you would prefer a paper Sponsor Form, you can download one –  or if you email our National Secretary to personalise one for your individual event.

Your can find more fundraising ideas here.

Collection tins

It’s amazing how the pennies can pile up. So why not help Coastguards by collecting your loose change in a Coastguard Association collection box?

There are two types of collection boxes: one you can have at home and the other can be displayed on a reception desk at work, or even at your local pub or social club. However you collect the money it will all go towards helping to support the Coastguard Association.

If you would like to request a home collection box or a reception desk collection box, simply email and request one – don’t forget to include your contact details in the email.

Double the money

Your company might consider matching fundraising donations? Why not ask them to match whatever you raise, this is a great way to make your fundraising effort grow and also to bring a little publicity to the company or organisation that you work for…
