Donate your birthday
Host a fundraising event
Fundraise by hosting a dinner party, bake sale or other event in your own community.
Below are just some of the ideas you can use for planning a fundraising event. Just remember, you know best what works for your community.
Fundraise at school, college or university
Young people are great fundraisers. As children, adolescents and young adults learn about humanitarian work and how it’s funded by donations, they also learn about self-respect, how to ask for help and show gratitude. Consider involving your young ones with a few of these ideas, or work with their teachers, the PTA or school administration to get everyone in on the fun.
- Sponsored walk
- Fashion show
- Bake sale
- Society ball
- Young Philanthropy Initiative (Scotland)
- College or university RAG
As a business that fundraises, you will benefit from the morale boost that shows your company’s commitment to giving back. Whether you’re a business owner or a conscientious employee who wants to make a suggestion, try these ideas around the office.
- Dress Down Day
- Team challenge event
- Charity of the Year
- Bake sale
- Payroll giving
- A special product/service offering
At your place of worship
Share the spirit of giving with your congregation, and celebrate helping the brave men, women and children in the world’s toughest places.
- Coffee morning
- Congregation collection
- Special service
- Children’s fundraising event
Include “peaceful change” on your wishlist for any occasion, and collect donations in lieu of gifts. You won’t miss that toaster when you think of how much you’ve helped a family turn crisis into opportunity.
