Top Five Fundraising Ideas

Embarking on a fundraising campaign is an amazing way to make a positive impact and raise money for the causes you care about most, but finding the right idea can be a difficult first step! In this blog, you'll find our top fundraising ideas to help kick-start your campaign. 

1: Take on your ultimate physical challenge

If you have some punchy fundraising goals, then participating in an extreme sport event will really help raise the bar for your chosen charity. Check out our top 5 physical challenges that will redefine your limits and leave you with memories to last a lifetime. Slight caveat, these challenges are not for the faint of heart... From crossing scorching deserts to conquering dense jungles, each of these gruelling challenges will test your resilience and determination.

2: Host an event (and use Contactless Donations!)

If you’d rather start off fundraising with something less physically taxing, why not host an in-person fundraising event, using Boost Donate to supercharge your donations🚀 Boost Donate is a brand new feature available for people fundraising exclusively on the givestar app that enables you to take contactless donations in person, instantly, from your own phone, for free. Magic!

You could:

  • Host a quiz night at your local pub and ask people to donate to your charity in order to take part.
  • Host a dinner for friends and ask them to donate whatever they feel they would have spent on a meal out.
  • Host a coffee morning or afternoon tea at your home, or for your colleagues at work.

3. Skydiving

Take the ultimate leap of faith! Pledge to complete a new skydive for every donation milestone met. By taking on a skydiving commitment, you'll be conquering your fears and fundraising goals💪

4. Tough Mudder

Gear up for a test of grit and determination by completing a Tough Mudder event. Tough Mudder is an endurance event series that challenges participants to tackle a gruelling obstacle course designed to test physical strength, stamina, and mental resilience. Enlist the support of your friends, family, and peers to sponsor your muddy mission🏅🏃‍♀️

5: Turn your campaign into a competition!

Level up your fundraising by turning your campaign into an exciting competition. Here's how it works: when someone makes a donation to your campaign, they not only contribute to the cause, but also throw their hat into the ring for a chance to win a prize. You could select your winners at random! Make the prize fun or silly (like a t-shirt with your face on it) and you won’t have to fork out!
