Charity Tandem Skydiving

Make A Skydive And Make A Difference!

Charity Parachuting Information

Tandem skydiving provides the experience of a lifetime and is a great way to raise funds for a good cause at the same time. Plus if you raise enough sponsorship your charity jump could be for free.

It takes just 20 minutes to be briefed for your jump and then you will jump harnessed to the front of a fully British Skydiving qualified Tandem Parachuting Instructor and experience the thrill of 120mph freefall. You can do a sponsored skydive on any date that Skydive Hibaldstow is open (subject to availability).

How Does A Charity Skydive Work?

All it takes is a bit of time and effort to fundraise. There are two options when it comes to doing a sponsored skydive:

  1. Most charities will allow the cost of the sky dive to be covered using up to 50% of the sponsorship money, however, a minimum amount of at least twice the cost of the tandem skydive should be raised.
  2. You can pay for the skydive yourself, and then the minimum fundraising target is usually halved.

It is important to recognise that although it seems you are skydiving for free, the tandem parachute jump is being paid for by the charity and the people supporting your cause, so you should try to raise as much as possible over the minimum target.

It is also important that you contact your chosen charity and agree the use of funds and the minimum sponsorship required with them directly.

Can I Choose My Own Charity?

Skydive Hibaldstow has links to several local charities with whom we already have agreements however we understand that you might want to choose a charity close to your heart. You are welcome to skydive for any charitable cause but you do need to agree the use of funds with them directly.

By booking directly with the dropzone and not through an agency all the funds raised only go two ways – to cover the cost of your charity tandem skydive and to the charity itself.

If you are fundraising for a charity of your own choice, you must contact the charity and agree to the use of funds directly with them.


  1. Start fundraising! Ensure you contact the charity to register your event and obtain official sponsorship forms so they can claim GiftAid.
    You must get approval if you plan to cover the cost with sponsorship money.
  2. You can also register to fundraise online using websites like JustGiving and VirginMoney.
  3. On the day of your jump, if agreed with the charity, you will need to pay the balance for the skydive at the airfield. Funds raised online cannot be used to pay for this (unless you make prior arrangements with the charity).
  4. Arrange to send at least the remaining minimum sponsorship to your chosen charity within the timeframe they have specified if you have not already raised enough online.
