A – Z of Fundraising Ideas: G

Continuing our blog series of fundraising ideas, today is brought to you by the letter G!

Whether you’re a first time or regular fundraiser, we all need a little inspiration sometimes. So, to give you a helping hand, we’re putting all of our favourite fundraising ideas together in a handy series of blog posts!

G

Golf Day – If golf is your thing, why not organise a charity golf day by gathering a few of your golfing buddies and challenging them to a day of the beautiful game? Organise a dinner for family and friends to attend after the golfing champions have returned from their day too!

Girls Night – Have a night to celebrate you and your gals! This could be done by hosting a pamper session, a cocktail masterclass, or maybe a dinner. Whatever you want to do, have a night to chill with your girls in support of charity.

Gig – Any music lover can get involved in fundraising by hosting a gig. This could be at your local pub or in your living room with all funds going towards your chosen charity.

Games Night – Regardless of whether you want to play more traditional board games or video games, why not host a games night for everyone to enjoy? You could get everyone to donate to take part and offer refreshments at an additional cost. Get a leader board going and see who your champion gamer will be!

Give it Up! – We all know how difficult it is to give up your favourite things. Think of your favourite food, drink or app, and give it up as part of a sponsored challenge in support of your chosen charity! Good luck!

Gift Aid – This is an easy way to give, which helps charities and doesn’t cost you anything! Make sure you fill out a gift aid form if you’re giving to charity. This means they can claim back on the tax on your donations!

Guessing Games – We’ve all seen charity guessing games, such as “guess the number of sweets in the jar” and “guess the name of the teddy bear”. Regardless, it’s a good way to fundraise and a fun game to play!

Gym Challenge – A lot of gyms offer certain courses, whether it’s a weight loss, fitness or bootcamp course. Consider getting friends to sponsor you to attend one and complete it!

Some of these activities are great as stand-alone events, and some can be run together to support a bigger event.

We hope this post has given you some food for thought! All of your fundraising is very much appreciated and helps us to continue our vital work to raise awareness and provide bespoke support to those affected by Inherited Metabolic Disorders.
