Fundraising Ideas


  • Great musician? Host an open mic night
  • Organise a long walk or cycle ride with your friends and family and ask them to sponsor you
  • Tell your club or society what you're doing and why, and ask them to sponsor you


  • Host a quiz night: cheap, easy and fun. Write your own questions, and sell tickets to your friends
  • Make the most of your cooking skills. Invite your friends over for a dinner party and ask them to donate the price they would have paid for your food in a restaurant
  • Be sponsored to give something up: alcohol, chocolate, or even your mobile phone
  • Movie night! Make your living room a cinema for an evening: popcorn, lights down, comfy sofas or cushions on the floor. Print out tickets, and don't forget to leave a donations pot for loose change


  • How many sweets are in the jar? Leave the jar in a visible place with a sign explaining your fundraising target and cause and charge for guesses - the closest answer gets to keep the sweets
  • Be sponsored to look silly: wear historic fancy dress to work
  • Could your organisation support English Heritage? Find out more about corporate partnerships
  • Organise a bake sale. Ask your colleagues to contribute and use the sale to promote your challenge. You could even take the baked treats round the office - no one can resist cake brought to their desk!
