13 WAYS TO HELP SUPPORT EQUITYSPORT RIGHT NOW
Updated: Nov 15, 2021
One of the questions we hear most often is 'how can I help?' - so as we drift towards the end of the year, the team have put together a handy list of ways you can get involved in helping make global sport fairer, and more equitable for everyone.
As the saying goes, 'it takes a village', and we're all too aware that for us to continue to make real change a lived reality for some of the most under-served and disadvantaged sporting communities in the world, we're going to need YOU, our loyal band of committed equality-in-sport advocates!
Reach out to us about any of the ideas below via email@example.com or using the CONTACT tab at the top of the screen. Have you got a different idea altogether?
Get in touch - we absolutely love hearing from our passionate supporters!
1. Follow us and invite your friends to follow our social media pages.
We're most active on Twitter and Instagram - and remember, if you see something you like, be sure to like and share it so that more people can see and hear about our work to change global sport for the benefit of everyone!
2. Join SQUAD for just £3!
SQUAD is a community of everyday people committed to keeping global sport accessible to everyone.

3. Put an equitysport donation tin on your counter or stall!
Do you run a cafe, bar, stall or shop? Help your customers put their loose change to good use whilst helping raise awareness of the equitysport mission by placing one of our secure and super smart donation tins (pictured above on a plant exchange in Surrey, UK) on your counter.
Reach out to us via firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange delivery and run through how we securely collect, process and acknowledge your amazing support!

7. Reverse your kit sponsorship.
Are you a sports team competing at any level of sport? Why not donate a sleeve, shorts or shirt sponsorship space on your kit to equitysport and help raise awareness of your commitment to equality, diversity and equal opportunity?
Whether you're a school, college, university, community, pub or elite sports team, get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org and we can chat through how it might work for your circumstances and how we'd be able to make it a worthwhile investment for you!
8. Invite us to an event you are planning.
Whether you're planning a gig, sports event or conference, we can create a unique, interactive and engaging pop-up for your guests, raise awareness through flyering, help out with things like charity car park attendants or simply shake a loose change fundraising bucket!

10. Donate a venue for a day or evening.
As a small charity with tight budgets but big ambitions, we're always looking for venues for a varied events programme including talks, pop-ups, gigs, fundraisers and sports events. Offices, outdoor space, barns, halls, bars, cafes, and restaurants - we can make use of almost any space - contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
11. Embark on a challenge and fundraise.
Follow in the footsteps of a whole host of committed supporters, like Watford FC footballer, Amber Stobbs (pictured above at the Dorney Lake Triathlon in 2021) and embark on a challenge to raise funds for equitysport.
We've got challenges for every month of 2022, from urban treks to full scale ultramarathons across the Lake District. With inclusive entry fees (from £7.50) and realistic fundraising targets for everyone, there's not been a better time to embark on a fundraising challenge - head on over HERE to sign up to one now.
Whether a triathlon, 5k, marathon, sky-dive or something altogether different, we can support you from idea through to delivery; including setting up donation pages, helping you promote your raise and through on-the-day support in a way that the big charities simply can't.
Got an idea or got a place in an event and want to put it to good use? Contact the team via email@example.com and we'll be with you every step of the way.
12. Feature us!
Are you a journalist that writes about equality in sport? Do you host a podcast? Or do you know someone who is? Why not invite one of our team on to talk about equality, diversity and equal opportunity in global sport?
Get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss how it might work.
13. Make a donation.
We are entirely funded through the generosity of our supporters. If you have the capacity, please consider making a donation of whatever you can spare to help make the changes required to deliver a fairer, more equitable sporting world for all.
