June is jam-packed full of awareness days – Some of which lend themselves very well to some themed fundraisers! If you’re looking for ideas to boost your fundraising pot this June then check out some of these fundraisers to get you started.
Here are some Awareness Days throughout the next week which could be used as inspiration for some great fundraising ideas. What’s your favourite?
The Big Lunch
Throughout the month of June many people are joining in with The Big Lunch. The Big Lunch brings neighbours and communities together to share friendship, food and fun. We all saw how much neighbourly joy and community spirit the UK has over the Coronation Weekend where many streets across the country held parties and joined together. There is huge potential for fun and fundraising! The Eden Project are leading the way on this this month with their Big Lunch initiative.
Along the same sort of theme are coffee mornings, afternoon teas and bake sales. How could your community get together and fundraise?
BNF Healthy Eating Week
The British Nutrition Foundation’s 11th Healthy Eating Week is taking place from 12–16th June 2023. This could be a great opportunity for school PTA’s and other organisations in local communities that work with children and young people to fundraise whilst helping people to eat healthier.
You could devise an e-book with a week’s worth of healthy meal planning or healthy recipes that people could buy for a small donation. Or perhaps a ‘healthy snack’ stall at the end of a school or work day where people can pick up a piece of fruit or healthier food item than a chocolate bar and an energy drink, for a small donation of course!
Loneliness Awareness Week
The 12th – 18th June is Loneliness Awareness Week. What could your community do to help raise money whilst simultaneously easing the burden of loneliness for local people?
You could ask friends, family and colleagues for sponsorships upon completing certain tasks. For example, help an elderly neighbour with weekly challenges like grocery shopping or garden maintenance. Go round to a neighbour who lives alone and have a conversation over a cuppa. Host a coffee morning for people who live alone in your village, with a small donation going towards tea, coffee and cake.
All the proceeds could go to a local charity or charitable organisation that helps those who are lonely.
Men’s Health Awareness Week
We’ve previously written a whole blog on Fundraising Ideas for Men’s Health Awareness Month which would work really well for this awareness week between the 12th and 18th June. From fitness challenges to charity car washes, dressing like a dad day to trading time – There are plenty of ideas to support the men in your life.
You could also incorporate something for Father’s Day on the 18th – Perhaps a ticketed brunch with a beer!
National Beer Day
Speaking of beer… June 15th is National Beer Day! You could host a Beer Fest evening where local breweries bring their finest beers and ales for people to try. Sell tickets and make sure there are plenty of other opportunities to make a donation to your cause!
National Clean Air Day
June 15th is also National Clear Air Day – A great excuse to encourage people to walk or cycle to school and work. Why not motivate them to gather sponsorships with a target of at least one week of environmentally-friendly commutes?
Digital Fundraising is easy to Integrate with Donater
Our suite of online fundraising tools include:
A dedicated online fundraising page, personalised to your charity or good cause. Supporters will immediately recognise your branding and thus, trust that they are in the right place to make a donation. Online fundraising pages are easy to share online via a handy link, and can be easily linked to your website with a ‘Donate Now’ button.
QR codes. We’ve all become more accustomed to QR codes with the NHS Covid app, so you’ll know how quick and easy it is to scan one with your smartphone. QR codes can be just as handy for taking donations. All your supporter has to do is scan the QR code with their smartphone, and it will take them to an online donation page. Once there, they can choose to donate with a tap via Google Pay or Apple Pay, or pay with their bank details. QR codes are a great addition to any physical marketing about your event, such as posters or newsletters as well as transforming a traditional donation box into a mobile way of taking digital donations.
NFC Tags. Our NFC tags take the above QR code concept a step further, and enable any supporter of yours with an NFC enabled smartphone to merely tap the tag or sticker. They will then be taken to an online donation page where they can make their donation quickly and simply. These work better with in-person events, but could easily be placed at the entrance to your charity or on collection boxes so visitors can donate to your cause if they wish.
