Children running in the Philippines

Ideas for you and your church

We’ve put together six fantastic fundraising ideas for larger groups:

Quiz night
Hosting a quiz night is a great way to raise funds and bring people in the community together. Top tip – keep the quiz to 40 minutes maximum with a set number of question categories.

Barn dance
Dance the night away with a traditional evening of foot-loose fun. If you have a space large enough, you just need a company to provide the music and country atmosphere.

Auction of promises
Ask your friends to pledge promises for a fundraising auction. You might be surprised to uncover some unknown talents among the people you know. Promises like photography, babysitting, decorating, chauffeuring and gardening are often popular.

Cake sale
Track down your church's top bakers and ask them if they'd be willing to donate a cake or biscuits for your event. Sell your array of baked goods after a service or church event. Enjoy!

Youth sponsored spring clean
Have a chat with your youth leader and enlist some volunteers to do a sponsored clean or garden. Stir up passion for caring for the poor amongst your young people. 

Fun run
From the youngest to the oldest member, a fun run or walk is a brilliant way to get your whole church involved. Set a date, plan a short route in your local area and distribute fundraising forms.
