Top Tips for How to Fundraise at School


Are you a school student who has a cause or charity close to your heart? If you’re looking for fun and easy ways you can support them, look no further because we’ve put together our top tips for raising money at school:

  1. How much fun is it playing sport? How much more fun would it be if you could play sport AND raise money for your chosen charity? Hosting a mini sports tournament (soccer, cricket etc) is a great way to receive donations by just charging a small fee to take part as well as giving everyone a really fun day!
  2. Reckon you could be quiet for a whole day? If you are up for the challenge why not get people to sponsor you to keep silent? Ask your classmates to join you as well to help raise even more money!
  3. Do you go to school with people who enjoy eating cake? GREAT! With permission from your teachers simply ask a few of your friends (or friends parents) to help you bake up some cupcakes to take into school to sell to increase the amount of dollars on your fundraising page.
  4. Does your school often put on concerts or plays? Why not ask if you can charge an entrance fee to support your cause, or even serve drinks in the interval with all profits to go to your fundraising page?
  5. Who doesn’t like wearing their own clothes? Very few people, which is why asking if you are able to have a ‘Non uniform day’ at school is a great idea! In return for a small contribution to your fundraising page all your classmates get to wear their own clothes to school.

If you’re planning to fundraise for charity at school, don’t forget to first create on online fundraising page using everydayhero. Share your page using email or social media with family and friends to ask them to donate online OR collect cash offline and deposit it onto your page using the ‘Give Now’ button.
