Fundraise with JustGiving
We use an online platform called JustGiving to raise funds through races, marathons and challenges. Here, you can make your own personal fundraising goal for Ruhama.
You can also join bigger events like the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon via JustGiving and fundraise from there.
VHI Women’s Mini Marathon 2023
Would you like a challenge in support of Ruhama? We are seeking volunteers to run the mini marathon to help raise funds for our service users. If you are interested contact Naz at [email protected]
You can also sponsor our Ruhama team who are running the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon 2023!
The service users we work with have gone through incredible trauma, but more importantly, they are resilient and brave.
Please support us to raise funds to provide essential food vouchers and mobile phones for this very vulnerable and silent cohort of society.
Our target is €3,500 – this will enable us to support 50 service users with €50 food vouchers and provide 10 mobile phones. The more we raise the more individuals we can support.

Create a Facebook fundraiser
You can create a ‘fundraiser’ on Facebook for a cause that is close to you. Choose a ‘cause’ or a charity (you’ll find Ruhama on the list), a goal and connect your friends to the cause and ask for their support. Friends can donate to your cause without even leaving Facebook.
This could be a simple ‘ask’ for Ruhama or a special birthday fundraiser asking your friends to donate to the charity of your choice as a birthday gift to you.
Your company can help us make a real difference to the lives of women affected by prostitution. We can work with you to develop a ‘charity of the year’ programme or a one-off fundraising event. We can also contribute to your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy. We’re flexible and open to suggestions.
