Every single time you keep a raffle, run a fundraiser or have a celebration night and put the assortment bucket out the proceeds go to the house charity.

Collect all the monies and remit them to the charity as you go alongside (for the sake of propriety and transparency and get a receipt) then at the finish of the calendar year tot up the complete sum raised and have your bank situation a “charity cheque” for you to current to a consultant of the charity (photograph-opp with the local press!)
Always advise the charity you are intending to increase resources for (whether or not you go down the home charity or personal charity routes) they will frequently be in a position to offer vacant belly poster, leaflets and other POS for you to use in the pub to advertise their activities. They will typically have a neighborhood department and their volunteers are constantly a great source of stewards or bucket shakers for your functions.

If you have a pool / soccer / darts or any other staff taking part in for your pub or making use of your pub as their clubhouse then get them concerned in your fundraising.
