01 Sep 2017
Getting ready to fundraise for Friends of the Earth? Here are some fundraising ideas to inspire you.

From a pub quiz to asking for donations at your own wedding – here are some practical fundraising suggestions to get you started.

Dinner party

Whip up some tasty food and get your friends over for a dinner party. Ask them to make a donation for your efforts preparing the meal.


Weddings are brilliant and successful fundraising opportunities. Why not ask for gifts to be made into donations to your chosen charity?

Tombola or raffle

An old classic. A quick and simple way to raise money - but make sure you can get your hands on some good prizes.

Pub quiz

A great way to raise money. Get your friends and family down your local for a quiz. Each team will have to pay to enter. Make sure you include a round about the environment.

Selling your unwanted items

Hold a jumble sale or a good old car boot sale. Do it online or in person.


Bingo is a fun way to get people together and raise money for Friends of the Earth. You can give prizes to the winners and ask people taking part to pay - so that you can raise money in the process.

Bee tea party

Inspired by our bees campaign? Why not hold a bee-themed tea party. It's a great way to highlight the importance of bees and show what delicious food they pollinate.

Sell your homemade crafts or produce

Are you a knitter, painter, gardener, baker or card maker? Sell your homemade items to raise money.

Give up something

Raise money by giving something up. Chocolate, smoking, takeaways, computer games, magazines, alcohol – the harder you make the challenge the more you’ll raise.
