Organise your own fundraising
Pick a fundraising idea to suit your passions and showcase your skills. There are lots of ways you can fundraise for our research as a part of #TeamCardiff.
Dinners, balls, concerts and reunions
Over the last couple of years, many of us have missed having our social calendars full of things to look forward to. So organising a dinner, ball or concert is a wonderful way to bring people back together and raise money.
If you’re an alum, why not bring your classmates back to Cardiff with a reunion? Selling tickets, adding an auction, raffle, or quiz (filled with Cardiff facts to test your memories) are simple ways to make your event a fundraiser, as well as fun! We can help with advice and share your event with your alumni community. Contact our alumni office about organising a reunion.
Sports and games tournaments
Footie or Fortnite, table tennis or Twister, poker or Pokémon; sports and games tournaments can be a great way of combining your hobbies with fundraising. So whether you want to hold a golf tournament on a world-class course, or run a 24 hour ‘gameathon’ our Community Fundraising Officer is here to help.
Coffee mornings and bake sales
An oldie but a goodie. Get the kettle on, dust off your mixing bowl (or make a dash to the shops!) and host a coffee morning or bake sale. An easy to organise fundraiser that brings friends, family and colleagues together. Remember to check out our practical fundraising tips.
If you’re a secret nail biter, sweary Mary or simply want to ditch the chocolate or booze for a bit, challenge yourself to go without. Get your friends and family to support you through sponsorship. Simply set up a JustGiving page, pick a cause and get started.
Fundraise at work
Fundraising with colleagues can help engage staff, boost team spirit, and promote positive health and wellbeing. It’s also a great way to meet corporate responsibility objectives and showcase your organisation’s support for world-class research, taking place right here in Cardiff.
If you’re interested in entering a corporate team to Cardiff Half Marathon, setting your own corporate challenge, or organising your own workplace fundraising activity like a raffle or bake sale, please get in touch.
