Tips and ideas for fundraising

Start fundraising banner image

Up for a challenge? 

Ask family, friends, colleagues and neighbours to sponsor you as you take on a challenge (Cardiff Half Marathon, anyone?) - or try something fun (cutting your long locks or eating ten chili peppers?). 

JustGiving makes it easy to support Cardiff University.

Love a party?

Invite your friends, neighbours, colleagues or community to join you for a coffee morning, quiz night, swap shop or pamper evening. Donate proceeds raised.

Fancy a team event?

Multiply your fundraising power by collaborating. Organise a tournament, hold a dress-down day, hold a bake-off competition and sell the spoils, or try a "walk-and-talk" lunchtime series. Donate funds raised.

Gift Aid can be claimed on both individual and sponsorship donations. However, you can't claim Gift Aid if you are donating proceeds raised from multiple supporters or where the donor receives something from you in return (such as raffle tickets).

Tell us your story

We love to celebrate our fundraisers, so share your story with us at donate@cardiff.ac.uk. We will then send you - and all those who helped you raise the money - a proper "thank you"!
