Because family life matters

Fundraising ideas

There’s a reason why the word ‘fun’ can be found in ‘fundraising’! We’re looking for people who love to support a good cause and have fun while doing it.

The sky’s the limit in what you could do to raise much needed funds for Care for the Family and make a huge difference to peoples lives – just a small amount can go a long way.

  • £20 can pay for a bereaved person to attend one of our hope giving day events.
  • £50 can help subsidise a family building break for a single parent family
  • £350 trains a volunteer to deliver relationship education sessions for new parents

Here are few events ideas to get you started:

Care for a cupcake
Enjoy baking? Why not hold a Care for a Cupcake fundraiser! Stock up on some yummy treats, invite your friends over, and they can buy a cupcake while sharing a tea or coffee with you.

Host a Roast
Enjoy the great British tradition of Sunday lunch while raising money. Instead of going to a restaurant for a family meal, cook a roast at home and get everyone to donate the cost of their meal to Care for the Family.

Run for the Family
If you love running, join Team: Care for the Family and take part in some well known running events such as BUPA 10K, or even the London marathon.

Celebrate and Give
When celebrating an occasion such as an anniversary or birthday, we’ve found that many people have used it as an opportunity to ask for donation in lieu (or as well as!) a present. It’s a simple and personal way to celebrate a special day.

Ready, Steady, Go!
A sporting challenge for under 5’s. If you’re part of a toddler group or nursery, simply choose your own activity such as a sponsored walk or small obstacle course, and get your ‘sporting stars’ to raise money for us in their own unique way.
