Children at a stall during a Christian Aid week fundraiser

At school

There are loads of exciting ways for both children and teachers to get involved with fundraising at school to support the work of Christian Aid.

Raising money for charity is lots of fun and a great way to get more involved with Christian Aid and the work we do. 

Here are some fun and easy ideas for fundraising at school:

  • Book swap! Ask students to bring in all their old books and sell them to each other for a donation.
  • Show your talents! Hold a talent competition or karaoke during lunch. Charge an entry fee and have children and teachers battle it out for the title. Don’t forget to get a prize for the winners.
  • Sponge a teacher! Have students pay to get their own back for all that homework and throw wet sponges at the teachers.
  • Sponsored silence! This is fun for the children and provides a welcome break for the teachers. The longer you stay silent, the more money you raise.
  • Non-uniform day! The classic school fundraiser. Ask your headteacher about a dress down day with each child donating to take part. Make it more fun and wear red for Christian Aid.
