Fundraising Ideas: Raise awareness and fundraise for Suffolk Mind at the same time
You could organise an event at work, in a local community group or amongst friends and family. You probably have some amazing ideas but if you are looking for some inspiration, here are some event ideas you could do to support us:
Bake Off! Organise your own Suffolk Mind Bake Off any day and time of the year. It can be held anywhere, perhaps in the office/staff room, at your school or even at your home. Sell your slices of delicious bakes and raise money at the same time.
Dress Down/Up Day Have a day in the office, at school, at your club or community group when people can make a small donation to wear whatever they want for that day, or maybe something themed. It could be a Christmas Jumper Day or Halloween dress up, Easter time bunny ears or just casual wear for a change?
Quiz Nights are a great way to fundraise and are popular events for anyone to show off their general knowledge and work together in teams. Charging an entry fee for individuals or teams is an easy way to raise funds.
Raffle A raffle is always popular at any event and is a fantastic way to raise additional money to donate to your favourite charity. All you need is generous people to donate some gifts for prizes and a raffle ticket book!
Pamper Evening Have a night in with the girls, pamper yourself and your friends and support Suffolk Mind by asking for donations to attend and sell raffle tickets on the night.
Music night/concert For the creative and musical people who can offer co-ordinate an event for music lovers, this can be a very special night and lots of people can get involved to make it a success. Sell tickets and drum up some additional donations throughout the event.
Take up a challenge
Raise awareness and challenge yourself to something new to meet your need for achievement, and help support Suffolk Mind too.
Planning a challenge as a team or something more personal can be different for all of us and there are so many things to do and ways to do them. Whether you are thinking of doing a sponsored skydive, a sponsored walk or even committing to giving up a bad habit, there’s so much to choose from.
We want to support you through your challenge and can help with any resources you might need, contacts, advice and support, every step of the way! We can provide a supporter t-shirt/running vest and can help with promotion to help you achieve your goal and raise awareness along the way. You can also set up a giving page on our website here and a member of the fundraising team will be in touch.
Whatever type of event, challenge or activity you are planning – large or small – we are keen to hear how we can support you if you need us. We can come and talk about our work and services that we provide, send you literature, poster templates and promotional materials plus collection buckets and pots.
