Fundraising ideas

There are lots of fun-packed ways you can fundraise for Oxfam. From cake sales and sponsored walks to your own unique ideas - whatever you do you'll be raising money to help people living in poverty all over the world.


Your favourite ideas

You don't need to spend weeks planning a complicated fundraising event to raise bags of cash for Oxfam. Here are some of the most popular events - you could have one up and running in no time at all:

Cake sale

Let's face it - you can't beat a good old-fashioned cake sale! So bake away and entice hungry customers with your sweet-smelling selection. And we wouldn't be Oxfam if we didn't suggest using Fairtrade ingredients.

Host a quiz

Whether it's a traditional pub quiz or something topical, this is a great way to raise money and get a lot of people involved.

Run a raffle

Armed with a book of raffle tickets there'll be no stopping you! Go for a standard raffle or make it a sweepstake with the Oxfam world treasure map [PDF, 1.8MB].

Dress-down day

Keep it simple with a dress-down day at work or school, or go to town with a fancy dress theme.
