Some fundraising inspiration

Maybe you’ve always wanted to run in a marathon or enter a cycling challenge? Or you might like to host a dinner party or a braai for your family and friends and ask them to donate?

For most activities, you can set up your online fundraising page here and ask for your friends, family, colleagues or neighbours to support your efforts via an online donation. Using the online fundraising page is simple and your donors will automatically receive receipts, the funds are automatically sent to Eco Children, and you and your sponsors can easily keep track of your progress.

Other popular and effective ways to fundraise include:

  • Baking sale – making some tasty treats and selling to classmates, colleagues, neighbours 
  • Holding a street stall and selling bric-a-brac
  • Undertaking a challenge (run, cycle, swim etc.) and asking for sponsorship
  • Giving something up (coffee, sugar, cigarettes, television etc.) and asking for sponsorship
  • Asking for donations to Eco Children instead of receiving gifts for your birthday or anniversary

Things to consider

Before you start fundraising, consider these important aspects:

What? What type of fundraiser will you hold? Check if you need any special permissions or paperwork. Eco Children can provide you with a letter of authority to show that your fundraiser is registered with us and above board.

Why? Why are you fundraising for Eco Children? Think about your personal reason, write it down and remember to share it when asking for donations.

When? When’s the best time to hold your fundraiser? Check for clashing local events or public holidays and give yourself enough time to plan and get organised.

Where? Where’s a good location? Check for a venue that’s the right size with the right facilities. Ask if you can have the venue free of charge given it’s for charity, or hold it at a private venue.

Who? Who do you need to involve? Who can help you organise your fundraiser, who will you invite and who will sponsor you and/or donate prizes?

How? How will it all come together? Create a simple event plan covering the tasks that need to be done, when and by whom. Decide on how you will promote your fundraiser.
