Fundraising can be as big or small as you want it to be, and it can be anything you want it to be! Start a book club, train for a marathon or organise a charity gig night. Fundraising in the community can help people to come together to have some fun, and whilst you do that, you can raise vital funds to help improve the quality of life for children living and working on the streets.
Here are some FUNdraising ideas:
With family, friends or work colleagues get competitive and take on a challenge for 2013. You could train for a marathon or a group trek to Kilimanjaro. You can spur each other on by training together.
Get your office to loosen up by giving a £1 to have a dress-down Friday, or themed day.
Fancy something a bit more social? Organise a sports team and have interdepartmental matches or take on a team riding or running challenge. If that’s not your cup of tea then maybe pint and a monthly pub quiz is, entry fee money going to ChildHope.
We can provide collection boxes or help you to set up giving through your payroll.
If you have raised money then check if your employer will match it, many companies offer matched giving – boosting the impact of your fundraising. If you’d like to get more involved and become a ChildHope partner then please contact us to discuss this further.
If you have a celebration coming up, why not give a unique present for a Birthday, anniversary or Wedding? Donate your money to ChildHope and you’ll be giving the gift of hope and opportunity to children in Africa, Asia and South America.
A non-uniform day is a classic fundraiser. You could tie this in with a fun day – stalls could include a tombola, raffle, face painting, guess the baby photo of the teachers, car washing, hair beading, egg and spoon race, guess the number of sweets in a jar and anything else that you can think off.
Children can get more involved by forming a charity committee and organising a fashion show, disco or battle of the bands.
If you have a drama group then put on a charity play or pantomime and the cost of the entry fee will go to a good cause.
Start a book club, donate money for each event and discover a new author you’ve never read or reread your favourite book. Or if films are more your interest…
A film night where the host gets to pick the movie then discuss it afterwards, or maybe just enjoy the homemade popcorn instead.
Once the weather gets warmer you could have a BBQ party, get to know your neighbours better and raise some money for charity too.
For friends and family who love good company and fine food you should get together for your own fundraising ‘come dine with me’ or wine and cheese tasting evening. Set up a JustGiving page and send your event donations to us.
Organise a play date with other mums, donate, eat cake, drink tea and have a natter.
We’d be happy to help so if you’d like more information please e-mail Pamela at firstname.lastname@example.org.
