Guidelines for Participation or Organisation of a Fundraising Event

Thank you for your interest in fundraising for the Julian Benson Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Your
support is very much apprecaited. We want your fundraising to be an enjoyable experience as well
as being safe and legal, so please read these guidelines before participating in any event, in which
you are raising funds for the Julian Benson CF Foundation.

In participating in an event in which you will raise funds for the Julian Benson CF Foundation, the
following guidelines apply:
1. You must be 18 years or over (if under 18, permission from a parent/guardian will need to
be arranged and communicated to our office).
2. You agree to participate in the event at your own risk.
3. We are happy to offer assistance, advice and guidance for your participation, however,
where the overall event is orgnaised by a 3 rd party (e.g. VHI Women’s Mini-Marathon), that
3 rd party is responsible for all organisational and safety aspects of the event. JBCFF can
accept no responsibility for injury or loss that may occur as a result of participating in a 3 rd
party event.

During your fundraising, either as a participant in a 3 rd party event or for your own fundraising
efforts, you may wish to organise a fundraising event or events.
Examples include: Coffee Morning, Gala Ball, Bike Race, Raffle, Auction, Dance-a-Thon, Funny
Jumper Day, Concert, Table Quiz, Sports Event etc.
When organising your own fundraising activities we require you to complete our FUNDRAISING
EVENT PROPOSAL FORM and submit to our offices for approval in advance of your event.

1. All fundraising events must be undertaken and conducted in accordance with all applicable
2. All due dilligence must be taken by you, to ensure that you and the people attending or
participating with you, do so in a safe and secure environment, where potential risks have
been assessed and negated where possible. We cannot accept responsibility for any injuries,
errors or ommissions on your part.
3. Whilst we are happy to offer advice and guidance to assist you with your event, the overall
planning, running and executing of the event, including any sales, expenses incurred, record
keeping and management is ultimately the fundraiser’s responsibility.

5. It is advised that a fundraiser secures their own insurance or checks with any hired or
associated venue if the event is covered under their insurance. We regret that our insurance
cannot extend to volunteer events.
6. If you plan to solicit contributions, sponsorship or in-kind gifts from businesses in your
fundraising efforts, please provide us with a list of potenital partners for review and
approval prior to approaching. A list of goods and services donated by companies should be
submitted when making final remittance to JBCFF.
7. Any relevant licences required for outdoor fundraising, ticket sales, public collections, door-
to-door activities are the sole responsibility of the fundraiser. Please be aware of some of
the following before undertaking such events:
-Simple raffles and one-off events usually do not require a licence, but raffles
involving tickets sold in advance or to peolple other than your guests may require
one. Check with your local Garda station.
– Any fundrasing conducted in the public arena will require a permit from An Garda
Siochana e.g. on the street or in a public place. While the owners of some private
properties including pubs, shopping centres and sports grounds may allow
collections onsite, you should also check with An Garda Siochana on the need for a
permit. Permits may take a few weeks or even months to obtain, so advance
planning is vital.
– Door-to-door calls are only permissible if you know the residents and should only be
made during daylight hours.
– All lotteries must comply with the law.

1. All of your fundraising communications should make it clear that you are fundraising in aid
of JBCFF, rather than acting formally on behalf of the organisation.
2. In naming the event, Julian Benson or the Julian Benson CF Foundation, should not be used
in the title, but as beneficiary of the net proceeds. e.g. ‘Name of Your Event in aid of Julian
Benson CF Foundation’ or ‘Event Name, proceeds in aid of JBCFF’.
3. If materials have been provided to you by our office, you may use these. If you would like to
use our logo, please apply for permission to do so, unless provided in your fundraising pack.
We will provide you with a high resolution verion of the logo. Please do not copy it from
other sources and please do not alter the colouring or fonts in any way.

influencer or press/media direct or agency to request support, coverage, interview, airtime
or other such exposure, without prior approval from JBCFF.
