Fundraising Ideas:

Ideas for fundraising are endless but here are a few suggestions that might help you in making your decision.

An Auction – This could be a great office event or even a night out for a group of friends, auction your friends off for different services like your manager doing the coffee run every morning for a week or somebody has to make their infamous cake to bring in for everybody. Then the highest bidder gets to decide the task.

Barbeque – Hold a barbeque for friends and family or at work. Get each person to pay a set fee to eat for free that day.

Bag Packing – Getting a group together to pack bags at a local supermarket or shopping centre. However, you do need permission from the store and a garda permit for this one. But it is a good way to make some money and do a good deed for charity and shoppers alike.

Car Boot Sale – Get all your friends/colleagues to bring in all their old and unwanted stuff that other people might still want and sell them off to each other and to the public for profit of the charity. A great way to get rid of all those little things hanging around the house.

Church-gate Collection – Ask your local priest if it would be okay to collect outside the church after mass for our charity but don’t forget to get a garda permit too.

Company Contacts – Use your company’s contacts to try and raise money for the charity. Don’t forget to get permission from management first though.

Coffee Morning – Sell some tea/coffee and cakes one morning in the office or locally in aid of the charity. It’s a cheap way to make a profit if each person pitches in and bakes a cake.

Dress Down Day – Get everyone in the office to have a casual day out of suits and high heels, get everybody to pay in for the luxury.

Diet – You and your friends go on a diet together and for each pound lost then donate a certain amount of money to the charity. Great to keep healthy and to help others at the same time.

Fashion Show – You could showcase a new line from a local boutique and you and your friends could have fun showcasing it to your local community, get people to pay for entrance. You could hold a raffle at half time to raise more money.

Fancy Dress Party – Hold a fancy dress party where everyone who participates must donate a certain amount of money to the charity. Perfect for around Halloween.

Fetes – Hold a stall at your local garden fete in aid of our charity, could be a means of getting rid of all your unwanted knick-knacks from around the house.

Football match – You could organise a football match between two rivalling teams/between management and staff at the office in the name of charity.

Five-a-side – Hold a five a side tournament between local businesses/shops/pubs

Guess the Number – Have a simple raffle where they have to guess how many sweets are in a jar and have to pay for their guess. Whoever guesses right wins a prize.

Hobbies – Get your heads together to see which of your hobbies you could raise money from e.g. massages, sponsored walk, bake sale etc.

Horse Racing Day – Get some clips of old races together and then bet against each other to say who wins. Minor prizes for the winners. Could be a fun staff night out.

Karaoke Night – Hold a karaoke night for you and your friends.

Lunch-less day – Get your colleagues to bring in a packed lunch rather than going out for lunch and donate the money they would have spent to your charity instead.

Matched Donations – Try and get your company/colleagues to match your donation to the charity.

Meal – Organise a meal for you and your friends. Either make it yourself or ask your local restaurant to give you a deal and everyone pays a bit extra towards the charity.

Neighbours – Try to get your neighbours involved by offering to wash their windows/car or mow their lawn for a donation.

Organise Events within Events – Look at any local events coming up and see can you hold a raffle or a fundraiser at the event.

Party – Why not have a themed party as a fundraiser? 60s, 70s, 80s, beach, Christmas, there are endless options for a themed party and why not charge an entrance fee for charity.

Pub Crawl – Get a group together for a pub crawl, make a fun game out of it and get people to pay money for forfeits/participation. The pubs might even give you a donation for the charity.

Quiz Night – Organise a quiz night in a local pub and ask each table participating to pay a fee to compete.

Raffle – Hold a raffle in your local area and get the local businesses to donate prizes so that the money made is all profit.

Race day – Organise a sporting event in your office or local school where everyone participates in three-legged race, egg and spoon race, wheelbarrow race etc. Get sponsorship cards and see who can raise the most money for charity.

Sponsored activities – Get people to sponsor you and your friends in an activity you wouldn’t usually participate in like a 10k walk, a 24 hour fast etc.

Shave – Get people to sponsor you in cutting off your hair, or shaving your beard that you have been growing for a while.

Smoking – Give up smoking in the name of charity and donate the money you save from not buying cigarettes.

Treasure Hunt – Set up a treasure hunt in a school or group, can be a fun game for adults and children alike. Get each team to pay a participation fee.

Unwanted or unused gifts – Ask friends to donate any unwanted/unused gifts that they would like to get rid of, use them as prizes for a raffle or sell them in a car boot sale.

Valet Service – Offer to clean cars inside and out for friends and family.

Wine and Cheese reception – Charge admission to a night of games and socialising. Get each person to bring a bottle of their favourite wine and then you can get donations for the charity.
