Raise money for charity doing skydiving! Charity Tandem Skydiving not only provides the experience of a lifetime but is an exciting way to raise money for a good cause at the same time. Many people have raised thousands of €uros and £pounds for charities over the years. We can help by offering advice and the necessary forms to enable you to raise the money. Many charities approve of some subsidy of training costs and this should be clarified at an early stage.
All it takes it a bit of time and effort to collect enough sponsorship and you can skydive for free. Some of the money that you raise will go to the charity and some of the money will go towards paying for the tandem skydive.
We ask that you raise at least double the cost of the jump.
Absolutely yes. We have links with some charities in the UK, Gibraltar and Costa del Sol, however, we understand that some customers have their own causes which are close to their heart. Simply notify us of the name and registered charity number of your chosen charity when you book.
Our sister centre in the UK has strong links with the following UK charities:
When booking a date, it is best to choose a date approximately 4 months in advance at least, meaning 3 months for promotion/advertising and collecting the deposits which need to be paid 1-month prior to the event as it is likely to be a group booking.
The reason we need the details and deposits 1 month before the event date is because we are holding that date for your group, and will not be taking regular bookings. If by 1 month before you have not got the numbers we had anticipated, then we have a month to fill some of the now available places.
When booking a date it is best to choose a date approximately 4 months in advance.
We require groups to arrive early and promptly on the day of the jump, this is due to the amount of paperwork, checking-in, and briefing that is necessary for a whole group. If we cannot start early, we lose a lot of very important jumping time.
There is, of course, the option to come to Seville the night before and stay in some recommended accommodation. We have links, and therefore discounts, for some self-catering apartments varying from 15-25 mins away from the airfield. By arriving the evening before and staying locally, the group can wake-up and leave straight for the airfield to be able to get to us on time.
We have a cafe/bar on site, so grabbing a coffee and some breakfast here – after the checking-in and briefing – will be fine once the jumping begins. The group can then watch each other jumping. Usually, we will be taking 2-4 tandem customers in the aircraft at one time, but this is all dependant on the number of your group wanting the DVD and Photos package and of course instructor and equipment availability. We can never guarantee the number of jumpers on each flight, but if you arrive with a list and the order the people want to jump, it helps us to do our best for your experience here with us.
The arrival times to the airfield is very important to group bookings; if you arrive late the chance of not completing all the jumps is higher. It should also be taken into consideration that if the Chief Instructor stops jumping for safety reasons, this cannot be contested and the jumps left to be made will have to be re-booked for another day, no refunds can be made. It is very important that all the jumpers in your group are aware of the situation.
For those who have not participated in charity events before, we would recommend that you read the following list of tips. They will show you some of the more unusual ways to gather funds.
It may seem to you that your charity tandem skydive is for free. In fact, it is being paid for by the people you approach for sponsorship. It is important to recognise this when requesting funds from them as the last thing they want to perceive is that you are extracting money for your own ends.
Therefore, let them know that by doing such a challenging event, you are raising a far higher total for the charity than by doing an event such as a sponsored run or cycle ride.
