HOW TO FUNDRAISE FOR ANONYMOUS CHILD?
If you want to raise some money but you're not sure where to start, have a look at our fundraising events page for ideas. There are many ways for you to fundraise on your own, with friends, at work or at school. Please read through our FAQs to help you on your way!
WHERE TO SET UP A FUNDRAISING PAGE?
Many of our fundraisers find JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving the easiest method to support their fundraising efforts as you can set-up online, track donations and share your story along the way. This is a simple, fast and secure way to raise funds, where any money you raise is automatically sent to Anonymous Child.
If you haven’t already, it’s a great idea to set yourself a fundraising goal – people who do raise a whopping 80% more than those who don’t. Then personalise your page with images and information and add updates to let your sponsors know how your fundraising is going.
Share your page far and wide using social media – ask family, friends and colleagues to share your challenge with their networks too!

HOW COULD YOU GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR EVENT AND SUPPORT US?
Use your networks: the most powerful asks come from people you know – think about approaching family, friends, work colleagues, local businesses, clubs and groups that you are part of and regional press.
Make it personal and relevant: education plays an important role in everyone’s life creating common ground with your audience. Include a great story about why you are fundraising when you approach people for support. Link your story to the programmes we are running showing the impact their support could make.
Get creative: use unusual promotional strategies to catch people's attention. You could set up a competition to win tickets, auction items or contact community groups that are relevant to your event - such as sports groups, mums and dads groups or clubs you’re part of.
Use social media: Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, Twitter and more are great ways to reach a wide audience. Get in touch with old friends to re-engage your networks.
