Fundraising ideas

There are lots of simple and fun ways to raise money for SOS Children's Villages UK. Whether you host an event, take on a challenge or get sponsored to do something silly, the money you raise will change children's lives forever.

Our team can help you organise and promote your event, and will support you every step of the way.  

Why not host a fundraising event at your home?  You could:
  • organise a coffee morning or tea party
  • host a film night, but be sure to bring the popcorn!
  • throw a themed event such as a garden party or Halloween party
  • host a dinner party or barbecue

Ask your friends to sponsor your challenge. You could try:
Why not get your office or school involved? You could:
  • have a dress down or fancy-dress day
  • hold an auction or raffle
  • have a bingo or quiz lunch
  • organise a bake sale or summer fete
Or maybe you and your friends have star quality? Why not:
  • hold a concert
  • organise a jazz, 80s or rock and roll party
  • run a karaoke night

If you have a great fundraising idea that we haven’t thought of, we would love to hear how it goes!
