Home > Organising Your Own Fundraising Event

Take control, and do something you love!

Organising your own fundraising event in aid of St Columba’s Hospice is a great way to do something you love, have a great time and support your local Hospice! We have plenty ideas so why not check out our A-Z list in our fundraising pack below.

We know that organising your own fundraising event can be hard work, but with a little bit of forward planning they can be great fun and can really help you to raise funds for the hospice.

Make a plan…

When deciding what type of event to organise you need to consider what you are trying to achieve and how much you are trying to raise. Some important things to consider include: who you would like to invite, what the fundraising element will be, and how much time can you commit to organising the event.

Another consideration when organising your own fundraising event is also what you know you can do well and what connections you might already have. For example if you know a DJ and are a member of a local sports club then perhaps a party night will be easy for you to organise. Similarly if you work in a big organisation where you have lots of colleagues, a bake sale or raffle might be a good idea.

Most importantly however, is to make sure you are having fun!

Fundraising at your event

There are lots of ways to raise funds and collect donations at your event and a top tip from us is that often the simplest ideas work the best. Also think about fundraising games your event attendees can ‘pay to play’ to raise money.

Our fundraising pack is full of ideas and how to keep everything safe, legal and fun at your event!

We are here to help!

We want to know all about your fundraising event and can offer advice and ideas to support you and your event. We can also give you various useful items to help you on the big day such as collection buckets, sponsor forms, banners and posters and T-shirts.
