CHINMAYA MISSION UK FUNDRAISING EVENTS

2017 LONDON MARATHON

The London Marathon is a challenging and gruesome 26.2-mile run that pushes runners beyond perceived physical and mental limits. Chinmaya Mission UK has places available each year for inspired runners aspiring to represent our cause.

In 2016, our brave London Marathon runners were Siddhartha Vadeyarahalli and Nick Gawne. Click here to find out more about their marathon experience. ​

Pragathee Venkat will be representing Chinmaya Mission UK in the 2017 London Marathon! Support her now by clicking here.

PRUDENTIAL RIDE LONDON

On Sunday 2 August 2015, Shreyas Iyer completed the Prudential Ride event, which is a 100 km cycle ride through Surrey and into London.  Click here to find out more about Shreyas’s bike ride experience.

2015 was the first time Chinmaya Mission UK was represented in the Prudential Ride. If you are a keen cyclist and would like to get involved in something similar, please email donate@chinmayauk.org.

GAU SEVA – SPONSOR A COW 

In Hindu culture, the cow is worshipped as Goddess Lakshmi – the bestower of prosperity, so ‘Gau Mata’ (mother cow) is the divine mother who feeds and nourishes. To feed and care for a cow is considered a great virtue (punya karma). Did you know you can make an offering to a Gaushala (cow shelter) run by the Chinmaya Gardens Ashram in Coimbatore, India? Please email chinmayagarden@gmail.com to find out more and make a donation.

SPONSOR A CHILD’S EDUCATION

Did you know you can sponsor a village child living in poverty to study at a Chinmaya Vidyalaya (school) in India? You can also help buy vital equipment to help sustain many of Chinmaya Mission’s schools. There are more than 80 Chinmaya Mission schools across subcontinent, empowering the lives of thousands of children by grounding them in an academic education with a spiritual vision. To find out more about how you can support Chinmaya Mission’s wide-reaching education initiatives please email the CCMT Education Cell: ccmtec@gmail.com or contact us at:info@chinmayauk.org 

MATCHED GIVING

Many companies and corporations are willing to match their staff donations at no extra cost to the individual staff member. Before starting your fundraising event, do find out from your company if they offer this programme, which can significantly increase your fundraising efforts.

EVERYCLICK

Do you shop online? Perfect! As you shop online you can simultaneously raise money for Chinmaya Mission UK without any additional cost to you.

Every purchase or search that you make on Everyclick, an average of 2-7% of your spending gets donated to Chinmaya Mission UK. All you need to do is register your details with Everyclick and then “click” away.

ORGANISE YOUR OWN EVENT

Beyond our annual centrally organised fundraising activity, there are plenty of things that you can do to help support Chinmaya Mission UK.

Simply think of an activity and raise money for it…its that simple. For example, if you are scared of heights then why not overcome this fear and raise money at the same by doing a sky dive or a bungee jump. If that does not interest you, why not do a day of ‘mauna’ by doing a sponsored silence, or organise a bake-sale? Click here for more fundraising ideas.

You can be as creative as you like and with an uninhibited imagination anything can be turned into a fundraising opportunity. However, we do kindly request that before you get started on any fundraising activity, please contact donate@chinmayauk.org so we can provide you with some essential background and guidance.
