Without fundraisers, our work in the world’s poorest countries wouldn’t be possible! To offer you some guidance and encouragement, we’ve listed some fundraising ideas.
Start your own event
Why not organise your own charity fundraising event? The only limit is your imagination, but here's a few tried and tested event ideas to get you started.
With so much talent around, you could easily hire a venue and start contacting bands on Facebook. Simple charge an entry fee and dance the night away. Alternatively, you could warm up your vocals and organise a karaoke night for friends and family.
Instead of holding an event, you could raise money by doing a sponsored activity. Shave your head, give up talking for a day, do a sponsored cycle – whatever you think will work. To organise a sponsored activity, all you need is an idea and a sponsorship form and you’re away!
Set up your own fundraising page or contact us for a sponsorship card.
Volunteer at collections
We run collections at various locations across Ireland throughout the year and need the help of volunteers!
Volunteering as a collector is an opportunity to help our work in the world’s poorest countries while also getting to know the local community. And there’s no experience required – a Concern staff member will be on hand to support you along the way.
If you're interested in becoming a volunteer, please sign up below or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
