Fundraising events

This page is free to all

What is it?

From charity balls to bake sales, fundraising events exist at all sizes. You can run them yourselves or have volunteers run them for you.

Good reasons to try fundraising events

  • You have a good network of supporters who can help plan the event and persuade other people to take part
  • You want to make strong connections with people who attend
  • You can get lots of elements of the event donated so that ticket sales, raffles etc can all go towards funding your organisation with your local community


  • If you want to do larger scale events, you have a team who can work out budgets to pay for elements of the event and still raise money.
