Top 10 Fundraising Ideas

2017-12-01

 Get your family and friends on board, let them know why you’re doing it and why it’s important to you. 

One of Agape’s main aims is to minimise costs and provide trips that are affordable for students. We currently offer some of the best value-for-money programmes in the industry. Sadly, however, we aren’t able to offer trips for free and the cost of an Agape adventure may still seem daunting. With that in mind, here are 10 fundraising ideas you might want to consider:



Clear out your loft, rid your wardrobe of all those clothes you haven't worn for years, and hold a stall at a car boot sale. Alternatively flog them online via sites like eBay or Depop.



Start a crowdfunding page on social media.



Hold a raffle. Get in touch with local businesses, explain why you're raising money and ask if they would be willing to donate a prize to your raffle (a meal for two or a round of golf, for example, depending on the business). Sell raffle tickets to your friends, family, and neighbours.



Organise a quiz night at your local school, village hall or pub. Charge for entry and have a tin for extra donations.
