Door to Door Fundraising
This week the team are in Stepaside.
Door to Door Fundraising
Door-to-door fundraising is one of the best ways for us to raise awareness, increase our income and gain new monthly Miracle Club donors. It is a well-established activity that many charities in Ireland are using.
The following FAQs should answer any questions you might have about Temple Street’s door-to-door campaign. If you have any further queries or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us.
How can I be sure the person at my door is a legitimate fundraiser?
Genuine Temple Street fundraisers will carry an ID badge with them at all times. It will be properly printed, not photocopied or hand written. They will also be wearing a Temple Street branded jacket (however on very warm days this may not be the case) and have several copies of The Miracle Club welcome pack to hand. If you have any doubts at all, ask the fundraiser for more information – a genuine fundraiser will be happy to answer questions and explain more about Temple Street’s work. If you are still concerned please feel free to contact us and put your mind at ease.
How are monthly donations used?
Monthly donations allow us to plan for the future, ensuring the needs of the hospital are met. Funds raise through the Miracle Club go towards purchasing vital life-saving equipment, redeveloping old and dilapidated wards, funding life-changing research and supporting patients and parents at a time when they need it most. For every €1 donated, 5c is spent on administration and governance costs.
Can I make a monetary donation at the door?
Our fundraisers only ask for regular gifts via direct debit and are not authorised to accept one-off cash gifts. If you would like to make a donation, please click here
What time do fundraisers start and finish calling at?
Door-to-door fundraisers work Monday to Friday between the hours of 12:30pm and 8:30pm and on Saturdays from 12.00pm to 6.00pm as this is when most people are at home.
Are my personal details and banking details shared with anyone?
No, all data is encrypted so your details are 100% safe and secure. Please also be assured that when you do pledge your monthly support your personal details are transmitted securely in compliance with industry standards.
Why does Temple Street use a third party supplier?
Running a year-round door-to-door fundraising campaign requires an extensive amount of resources and expertise. Our door-to-door partner, C3 Marketing, are one of Ireland’s most well respected face-to-face fundraising organisations.
Who should I contact if I want to cancel my direct debit?
You can contact Temple Street Foundation directly on 01 878 4344 to cancel or reduce your direct debit amount. We would also advise that you cancel with your bank.
