Fundraise and support us

Help us make the law work for animals by fundraising to support our vital work. 

A big push to raise funds during Animal Law Week (18-22 July). 

A-Law is asking people to fundraise for the charity during Animal Law Week, so that we can do more throughout the year to help animals.

Animal Law Day takes place on 22 July each year and marks the anniversary of the first national legislation to protect animals in 1822.

Fundraise and raise awareness about Animal Law

University bake sales

Save room for dessert when our excellent Student Volunteers run vegan bake sales at their respective universities, or follow suit and host one at your place of business. They can be themed to coincide with a holiday or provide a happy break from the normal routine.

Marathon or 5K run

Forget your stuffy gym, and instead, run outside to support our work for the animals. In 2022 one of our trustees ran a marathon, raising vital funds. If that’s too big a goal, a sponsored 5k run can help you fundraise and keep fit.

Legal dog walk 

Why not fundraise and keep fit by organising a sponsored dog walk ? Like your favorite competitive race or walk, except this time you get to walk with your dog. Get all your dog-loving friends and colleagues to sponsor you and Fido for a great cause.

Other ways to provide financial support

Gala dinner

We are planning a Gala Animal Law Fundraising Dinner and Prize Giving in 2024. Get in touch now if you are interested in sponsoring a prize or reserving a table for your firm or chambers. 

Advertising

We have opportunities for advertising in our journal and website, subnject to our ethics policy. Of particular interest to universities and course providers.

Corporate Sponsorship

We have corporate sponsorship opportunities. Sponsor a student prize, an event or our Talking Animal Law podcast. Contact the team for details – [email protected] 

Make your donation work harder.

Employer matched giving

Ask if you employers operate a matched giving scheme for sponsored events and will match money you raise up to an agreed amount. It’s a good idea to ask about this in advance.

Gift Aid your donations to help us raise funds without costing you any more.

Where do our funds come from?

Our activities are largely funded by subscription fees and donations.
In 2016 we received a grant from the cosmetics company, Lush, towards our work with the Wildlife and Countryside Link Animal Welfare Strategy group (‘WCL’), advancing animal interests through the Brexit process and in 2021 Lush provided grant funding that enabled us to fund trade expertise to help inform the work of NGOs seeking to advance animal welfare objectives through post-Brexit trade policy.

We have also been the recipient of grant funding (2018-2021) from Animal Charity Evaluators Movement Grant towards our student outreach, enabling us to reach more students interested in learning about and engaging in critical debates in animal law.

How do we spend our funds?

We are a volunteer led charity and our senior team and board of trustees dedicate significant amounts of time to leading our charitable work. Our work is also supported by a large pool of volunteers. We have one part-time employee who provides secretariat support.

We not have premises, so our overheads are minimal and all donated income goes directly to making the law work for animals.

Why do we need to fundraise more?

We are fundraising to employ a full-time project lead so that we can achieve even more for animals through our Good Laws for Animals Project. We have many projects that we want to progress, but we need help to cover our modest running costs and step up our support to animal advocacy groups.

How can you help us raise more funds?

There are many ways you can help us to raise the necessary funds to improve animal protection laws. We feature some fundraising ideas, as well as opportunities for sponsorship and advertising with us.
