We are always excited to welcome support from Schools, Colleges and Universities and there are so many ways you can get involved. Using your networks to Fundraise in your educational institutions is a great way to not only raise awareness of Serve On and what we do Internationally, as well as crucial community work in the UK but to raise funds to help us in our mission too.
Organising your own Fundraising Event couldn’t be easier! With help and assistance from our Fundraisers at Serve On all you have to do is come up with an idea that you think will appeal to the students around you. If you’re organizing RAG week activities, bake sales, pantomimes, pub crawls or a good old bucket shaking collection we can give you the help you need to get started.
We are excited to announce that this year Serve On is part of University of Bath’s Big 4 charities and we are looking forward to fundraising with them in the 2015/2016 academic year.
If you need some help getting started why not take some of these ideas to your Student Union and start fundraising today!
Easy, simple and a very effective way to raise money. Hosting a Great British-style Bake Off, a vintage tea party, a competition or a prize for the best cake you’ll have delicious treats to sell and lots of fun doing it.
AUCTION OF SKILLS
Got members who can whip up a delicious dinner for 4, prepare perfect picnics, a whiz with a needle and thread or web wizards? Why not gather together a group and auction off your skills. Mix in some fun and crazy ones with some really great offers and you'll capture the attention of students all over campus.
With lots of pubs and bars nearby why not take on the challenge of organizing a quiz night for the brainiest bunches around. With an entry fee per team or per person you’ll be laughing with your friends all night long. Why not ask the bar if they will donate a prize for the winner, or donate £1 a pint sold at the event?
HOST A CARNIVAL DAY
Who doesn't love a fair? Why not find some space around campus where you can hold a one-off carnival! With coconut shys, test of strength and much more invite staff, students and the community. Charge admission or a small fee to play games.
Rally in the faculty car park in the morning and charge to wash cars – particularly popular in the summer this simple fundraising idea can be a great way to raise money.
If you would like to hold a collection either on Campus or in a nearby City get in touch and let us know! We can help you obtain the right permits for collecting and provide you with the materials you need to get going.
Get sponsorship for swimming, play football for hours or host a tournament for your fellow students. All you have to do is find a fantastic prize as an incentive for the winning team (think a round of drinks at a nearby bar) and have people pay to enter your Serve On charity tournament!
