We carry forward Jo Cox’s passion by continuing to make change on the issues that she was passionate about – from nurturing stronger communities, to campaigning for respectful politics, and advocating for a fairer world.
By raising money for The Jo Cox Foundation, you’ll be playing a vital role in making our work possible. Once you’ve decided how you’d like to fundraise, we’d love for you to let us know what you’ve got planned.
Ways to fundraise
Challenge events – Combine your support for The Jo Cox Foundation with your love for a challenge! Whether it’s running a marathon, hiking the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, skydiving, or something else entirely – we’d love to support you to get set up and champion your efforts on social media. Register your interest in one of our current challenge events.
Fundraising at work – Nominate us to be your charity of the year, make a regular donation to us through your work’s payroll giving scheme, or ask your employer whether they will match donations that staff make to charities. Your organisation may also be interested in becoming a corporate partner.
Student fundraising – If you are at university, you can nominate The Jo Cox Foundation to become a RAG charity to help raise awareness through your student community. Get in touch for support with your nomination.
Facebook fundraisers – Birthday fundraisers are an easy and effective way to raise money for us on Facebook and 100% of the money will be donated to us.
JustGiving – Rally your friends to support your fundraising efforts by creating a fundraising page on JustGiving. Head to The Jo Cox Foundation page and select ‘Fundraise for us’ to set yours up.
Give As You Live – Become a supporter of the Foundation through Give as You Live. When you make purchases online from any participating store, we will receive a donation at no extra cost to you.
Clare’s marathon story
Clare Sanderson – a teacher at a school in Jo Cox’s constituency of Batley and Spen – took on the incredible challenge of running the London Marathon 2023 and raised over £1500 in donations for The Jo Cox Foundation.
Training for a challenge is so much easier when you are doing it for someone else and not just as a personal challenge, and knowing that so many people had faith in me kept me going to the very end when my legs were giving up on me!
