Want to raise money to support Children in Distress, but don’t know where to start?

Whether you’re a first time fundraiser or a regular fundraiser, everybody needs a little inspiration sometimes.

We know how hard it is to organise events with the current pandemic, however below you will find a couple of online fundraising ideas that might just be what your looking for:

 

Quiz Night

You would invite a group of friends and family to join in with a quiz night.

You will need to consider the following:

  • How many questions will be getting asked?
  • How much will you charge to join the quiz night?
  • Will you hold multiple games?
  • Will there be a prize? If so, how much per game?
  • Which platform to hold event on Teams, Facebook group or Zoom

For example, David has a quiz night and invited his friends and family. 25 people would like to join, each game costs £5 with a prize of £25: This would make a donation profit of £100 (less prize money)

Game Rules:

  • 1 prize per game (if multiple winners prize is to be split)
  • A maximum of 3 cards purchased per person, per game
  • Fundraiser cannot play in a game, they will be number caller

We can help with:

  • Creating a team’s/zoom link to hold event.
  • Email link for number generator for calling numbers
  • Email bingo cards for you to distribute to players

 

Bingo Night

You would invite a group of friends and family to join in with a bingo night.

You will need to consider the following:

  • How many games are going to be played?
  • How much each game will cost the people playing?
  • How much each prize will be?
  • How many people will have to play to ensure funds are raised.
  • Which platform to hold event on Teams, Facebook group or Zoom

For example, Mary has a bingo night and invited her friends and family. 20 people would like to join, each purchasing 1 card. Each game card costs £5 with a prize of £20: This would make a donation profit of £80 (less prize money)

Game Rules:

  • 1 prize per game (if multiple winners prize is to be split)
  • A maximum of 3 cards purchased per person, per game
  • Fundraiser cannot play in a game, they will be number caller

We can help with:

  • Creating a team’s/zoom link to hold event.
  • Email link for number generator for calling numbers
  • Email bingo cards for you to distribute to players
