Right now, women are being disproportionately affected by the impact of COVID-19. Sport can change lives. Help us make sure that as the nation emerges from this crisis, girls and women are given the opportunities they deserve to experience the lifelong benefits of sport.
As the UK’s leading campaigning women’s sport organisation, fundraising is an essential part of what makes Women in Sport’s mission possible. We want to help create a world in which everyone can experience the transformative power of sport and exercise. But to do so, we need the support of people like you with a passion for women’s sport and gender equality.
There are many ways in which you can support our work to create happier, healthier futures for women and girls through sport. Whether you’re interested in volunteering, attending a webinar, sharing our learnings with a local organisation or raising money for Women in Sport, we appreciate every single one of you who gets involved with our work.

Why fundraise for Women in Sport?
Whether you are passionate about playing your own sport, want female athletes to receive the same pay and treatment as their male peers, or are passionate about getting girls active, Women in Sport is here to help.
We have been campaigning for the rights of all women and girls within sports for almost three decades. Our work covers everything from increasing the number and treatment of women in sports management and bolstering the reputation of female athletes, to encouraging the most underrepresented girls and women in the UK to get active.
Over the years, we have seen some huge successes, from helping to shape the legislation that ensured every sports organisation must now have at least 30% women in leadership positions. Click here to find out about our work and our impact.
However, there is still a lot of work to be done – and we’re not slowing down any time soon! So, to keep on empowering women and girls through sport, we need your support.
Women in Sport is a charity, and it is because of the generous support we receive from funders and donors that we are able to carry out our work. You too can become an integral player in helping to inspire women and girls to get more involved in sport. Make a donation here.
