Fundraising ideas

Whether you’re looking for a personal challenge or want to raise awareness of kinship care, your fundraising can help us to keep more families together.

Discover fun ways to use your time and talent to raise money for Grandparents Plus, or get in touch with us 020 8981 8001 or at [email protected] if you've already got something in mind.

Sporting events: there are a number of physical activities to choose from. Whether you run,cycle, walk or swim, take part in a team or go it alone, Grandparents Plus can advise and support you.                                

Cake sale: get the family together and bake your way to fundraising success. Selling tasty treats at a school event or holding a bake off at work is a great way to get everyone together and raise money for a great cause.

Games night: holding a quiz or board game night can be a great way to raise extra funds. Decide what’s right for you, find a suitable venue and invite your guests to pay to play. 

Coffee mornings: you've brewed, baked and invited your guests. Coffee mornings are a great way for people to come together, have a chat and share their life experiences whilst raising money for a great cause.

Give it up: could you give up something you love to raise money for Grandparents Plus? Do you have a vice that you’d like to kick? Why not try a month-long sponsored challenge that can help you break a bad habit and raise funds to benefit others.  

Dress-up days: whether it's a fancy dress, uniform-free, wear a silly jumper or dress in one colour day, have everyone come into work in the theme of the day and pay a small donation.
