School Fundraising Ideas
Involving your kids is a great way to boost your fundraising. Working with their school will open up whole new avenues of fundraising, as people are far more likely to donate when children are raising money for charity. This is particularly effective if you’re fundraising for a children’s charity.
Work Fundraising Ideas
Lots of the best fundraising ideas involve engaging with your work colleagues but you need to make sure you give them a focus rather than just sending an email round with a link to your fundraising page. Organising events for them is important, and the ideas below always work well.

Family & Friends Fundraising Ideas
If you try to do everything on your own you’ll struggle to reach your full fundraising potential. By involving your family and friends you’ll be able to set up bigger and better fundraising events, and massively expand your network of potential supporters.
Animal Fundraising Ideas
If you’re fundraising for an animal charity, it makes sense to include animals in your fundraising. Even if you’re not, you’ll find that people are especially attached to their pets, and will jump at the opportunity to donate to a fundraiser that includes them.
