Fundraising Ideas

Virtual fundraising for virtual times

Stay connected

With many of us in isolation, restricting our social contact and with social distancing strongly advised, it is important that we stay connected with our network of family, friends or colleagues.  With this in mind, we have put together a list of virtual fundraising ideas and we'd love to hear from you if you try any of these ideas out. Share them with us on social media


Virtual Pub Quiz

Use Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangouts to hold a virtual pub quiz. Set up a donation page and ask your guests to make a donation to take part.


Virtual gaming session

Hold an online gaming session, either using a gaming platform, or go old school and host a virtual board game and ask friends for a donation to join in the fun.

Virtual crafting event

Get crafty with your friends for an online making session

Virtual physical activity

Why not set yourself a fitness challenge and post virtual updates on your progress


Greenfingers sweepstake

Challenge your green fingered friends to join you as you plant seeds and see who grows the biggest and best blooms or veg

Online sale

Have a declutter and sell your items.  Donate the proceeds to Brighter Futures

Online gig

Whether you’re a singer or play in a band, or a comedian, why not stream a gig online and ask for donations
