June Awareness Days to Help You Fundraise

June is like a little treasure trove of Awareness Days that lend themselves so well to fundraising activities. So much inspiration! We’ve looked through and chosen some of our favourites to give you some fundraising ideas for your charity or good cause.

Which one would you choose?

June Awareness Days – Fundraising Ideas

National Picnic Week 

It’s National Picnic Day on the 18th, with a week’s worth of celebrating between the 17th and 25th. Get your dancing shoes on, do a little rain dance to encourage the sun to show its face and host your own Picnic for your community space – Whether that’s a school, village or other group. 

Put on some activities and stalls and you can charge a small donation to enter – Make sure there’s plenty of fun to be had for all!

National School Sport Week

It’s that time of year – School Sports Day! The week of the 17th to the 23rd is a great time to host your Sports Day and incorporate some fundraising. You can read some of our favourite Sports Day fundraisers for your school PTA on our previous blog here as well as some more Summer fundraising ideas for your PTA here

World Music Day

The 21st June is World Music Day. Why not hold your own Village Got Talent type competition where everyone can get together and display their musical talents? We’d bet that in your community you’ve got some super talented people! Children and adults welcome.

Charge a small donation to watch the event as well as an entry fee to those taking part and the sound of the fundraising pot is bound to be music to your ears. 

National Writing Day

The 21st June is also National Writing Day. Why not hold a poetry or short story writing competition? You could share your favourite entries on your website and socials where people can vote for their faves! Make sure you get a prize for the winners – Donations from local companies could work well. Don’t forget to charge a small fee to enter the competition. 

Bring your Dog To Work Day 

We all wish we could do this every day, don’t we? The 23rd is Bring Your Dog to Work Day. Your organisation could charge a small fee for the pleasure of doing so, with all the money going to a charitable cause. 

International Sunglasses Day 

June 27th is International Sunglasses Day – Why not garner sponsorships for wearing the wackiest pair of sunglasses you can find for the whole day, indoors and outdoors! The crazier the better. 

This is a great one for sharing on social media, which will raise even more awareness for the cause you are raising money for! 

National Bingo Day 

The 27th June is also National Bingo Day so why not host a Bingo night in your local community? People love bingo these days – It’s the new night out! 

Charge a fee for entry, and put on food and drink as well. Remember to offer plenty of additional donation opportunities – As the bingo call goes, Ask For More (34). 

Children’s Art Week

June 29th is the start of Children’s Art Week – A lovely opportunity to get children involved in some fundraising activities! 

You could even turn their works of art into t-shirts, mugs and cards and then sell them back to their delighted parents! A great fundraiser for school PTA’s.

Is your charity fundraising digitally?

The most comprehensive way to fundraise is to make donations accessible to all. That means cash AND mobile donations. School PTA’s need to be able to take both cash donations and online donations. 

Donater makes fundraising digitally easy! We have a suite of online fundraising tools that make online donations straightforward and cost effective. How much more could you raise for your good cause or school PTA if your supporters could donate via their mobile simply from scanning a QR code or tapping a NFC tag

Plus, with a personalised online donation page, accessed via a Donate Now button on your website, anyone visiting your organisation online can easily and quickly make a donation. And if they’re accessing your website on their smartphone, they can pay within seconds via Google or Apple Pay.
