Making the most of fundraising with young people

KS2: ages 7-11KS3: ages 11-14KS5: ages 16+PosterPDF

This free poster for schools and youth groups has been produced by Think Global together with British Red Cross, CAFOD, Christian Aid, Humanity & Inclusion, Islamic Relief, Oxfam, Plan, Practical Action, SOS Children’s Villages, UNICEF and VSO. It uses real examples to explore the issues involved in organising fundraising activities. And it helps teachers and students reflect on how they can move from a charity mentality to a social justice mentality.

Fundraising is an important part of life in schools and youth groups. Fundraising activities, from sponsored sports events to charity concerts, can be motivating and fun for young people, as well as supporting charities in their work. Such experiences can also have huge educational potential, offering opportunities to develop young people’s understanding and skills as active, responsible citizens.

You may be planning your own fundraising event, or deciding whether to get involved in an event or campaign of a particular charity. Either way, there are steps you can take to make sure that the young people you work with have the opportunity to really participate, and through research and discussion explore the questions raised by taking part.
