Fundraising Ideas

There are lots of fun things you can do to fundraise.  If you haven’t decided what is best for you, here are some ideas to get you started.

Are you a fitness fanatic?

Why not consider running a marathon or a sponsored cycle or swim!

Are you an adrenaline junkie?

Skydive, bungee jump or abseil your way to raising funds.

Are you an entertainer?

Organise a gala ball, pub quiz or comedy night with a raffle or auction.

Are you a baker?

A coffee morning or cake sale might be more up your street.

Something to celebrate?

Whether it’s a birthday, marriage or anniversary, why not ‘give in celebration’.

For a full list of ideas see our fundraising booklet.





Fundraising Tips

Create an online fundraising page through JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving to make it simple and secure for people to sponsor you anywhere, anytime.  Simply set up the page and share the link with friends, family and colleagues via email, Facebook and Twitter.

Your fundraising efforts can be given a big boost by asking your sponsors to Gift Aid their donation. If your sponsor is a UK taxpayer, the Brittle Bone Society will receive an extra 25% at no extra cost to you or your sponsor.

Close friends and family are likely to give more generously so ask them to sponsor you first as their amounts may set the trend for other donations.

Many companies will match what you raise so find out if your employer does Matched Giving.

Keep it legal. Certain fundraising activities require licenses, consent and insurance. If in doubt, contact us and we will guide you on any requirements.

Look the part. Visit our merchandise page for T-shirts and any other merchandise you require, including posters to promote your event and sponsor forms.
