Fundraising ideas

You’ll need to decide what to do and where to do it, but here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Spring: boat race, swap shop, unwanted pressie sale, variety show, yoga class.
  • Summer: BBQ party, car wash, head shave, teddy bears’ picnic, open garden, swimathon.
  • Autumn: battle of the bands, comedy night, indoor games night, talent competition.
  • Winter: mulled wine and cheese evening, knitting competition, quiz nights, afternoon tea. 

Being organised is the key to a successful and happy fundraising activity, and your plan should cover:

  • the activity
  • raising the money
  • timing and audience
  • venue and weather
  • budget publicity, the ‘big day’ and publicity materials.

Remember to be legal and be safe. Make sure you’re covered. There are laws that govern all charity fundraising activities.

Please refer to this helpful guide on the Funding Centre website.
