Fundraising Ideas

You may already know the type of fundraising event you would like to host for Orbis, but if you need some help, here are some fun ideas for in-person and virtual fundraisers to inspire you and get you started.

Bake Sale

always a winner at work, home or in your local club.

Donate Your Coffee Money

People love their speciality coffees and spend a lot each month on their favourite caffeine fix. Ask people to forego their daily coffee just once and donate the money they would have spent to your chosen cause instead.

Get active

organise a walk, run, or cycle in your area. Or sign up for our Run 20/20Initiative.

Quiz Night

another fun virtual or in-person event. Host a raffle too and boost your fundraising.

Take on a personal challenge

this could be a marathon or an endurance challenge. You’ll find lots to choose from here.

Ugly Jumper Competition

An alternative to Christmas jumper day that works at any time of year. Offer prizes for the ugliest or funniest jumper worn and post the entries on your intranet or message board to allow colleagues to vote for the worst.
