With the help of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world, we’ve collected some of the best fundraising ideas for you. Below are some of our favourites, but the options are endless. Host a special event day with games and activities for children, including a small entrance fee. You can promote in schools and community centres, and use activities from our pack.
- Organise a community treasure hunt or quiz night with a cost for each team taking part.
- Make origami boxes. Take them home. Fill with coins over a month.
- Hold a sponsored hike, swim, camp, silence...
- Ask your school if you can organise a “dress up day” where everyone wears their own clothes or fancy dress for a day at a small cost
- Plan a special event, such as a gourmet dinner, gala ball, afternoon tea and sell tickets
If you have a great idea, please email us so we can spread the fundraising love.
