More Ways to Give

Give yourself a fundraising challenge

Mikk's Marlow Run Picture

A fundraising challenge can help you reach a personal goal while supporting us to reach our goals - everyone's a winner! Mikk ran the Marlow Half Marathon in November 2018. He was spurred on, through this particularly hilly course, by the thought that his efforts were raising £250 for the Inland Waterways Association.

Online Sponsorship

Its easy to set up a sponsorship page on Virgin Money Giving - they will do all of the money and gift aid collection legwork for you so you can concentrate on your training and preparation. It doesn't have to be the London Marathon - swimming, walking, running, cycling, canoeing, going Vegan for a month - all make great fundraising challenges. If you need inspiration you can find events near you on 

You can find all the help and guidance you need for this and more in our downloadable Fundraising Pack. There is also further information for IWA officers on our sponsored events pages, but please note you will need to log on to view these.

Give your time - Volunteer

You can help IWA with more than just money. Lots of people prefer to give their time and whether it's one hour or a whole week, we've got volunteering opportunities for everyone! Find your local work party through the group pages or see the IWA calendar for upcoming events.

Give a donation

IWA relies on the generous donations given by our members and the general public, to continue keeping the waterways alive. A donation of just £3 can help us kit out volunteers on one of our many work parties. You can donate easily online or send a cheque payable to The Inland Waterways Association to Island House, Moor Road, Chesham, HP5 1WA.

Give to your local branch

Meetings and talks are a great way to find out more about your local branch and your local waterway. New faces always welcome!

Give online

We've teamed up with EasyFundraising the Giving Lottery and Virgin Money to make giving to IWA as simple as possible. Find out more about giving online here.
