Fundraising for charity

Anyone can raise money for a charity. Not only will you be doing good for the cause the charity works for, but raising money can also be fun and rewarding.

If you’d like to raise money for a charity, get in touch with them and they may well be able to provide you with support or resources to help you.

If you’re looking for inspiration, check out these A-Z lists of fundraising ideas from Cafod and the Alzheimer’s Society.

Events

For questions about putting on an event, visit the GOV.UK guide to planning a voluntary event, with practical information on common questions about health and safety and licensing.

Guidance

The Institute of Fundraising has guidance on how to run a collections or a raffle.

If you are organising fundraising on behalf of a charity that you work or volunteer for, you should be familiar with the Charity Commission’s fundraising guidance and the Fundraising Regulator’s code of fundraising practice.

If you have further questions, the Institute of Fundraising’s frequently asked fundraising questions is a good place to start.
