Community Fundraising

Raise awareness and critical funds to help protect endangered species and the environment by organising your very own activity. Your only limitation is your imagination! The best fundraising ideas are always the ones that are easy, fun and appeal to you on a personal level. If you feel enthusiastic about your activity – your family, friends and colleagues will join you.

 

Instead of cards and gifts, ask your loved ones to make a donation towards your fundraiser. Community fundraising is a great way to support our vital conservation work on your special day.

Children, schools and groups

Fundraising is a brilliant way to combine learning and fun. Whether a cake sale in the school playground, a wildlife themed dress-up day or a craft stall at a local fete, fundraising is a great way for children to increase their awareness of the world around them. Plus, it draws attention to issues that are important to them and helps them feel empowered that they're contributing to the solution in a practical and hands-on manner.
