Planning your fundraising

Planning a fundraising event can be daunting. Follow these steps for fundraising success!

Step 1. Pick something to do

If it's your first event, keep in simple and start with what you know. If you're an old-hand at putting on events, you could try something more adventurous. Contact our Community Engagement Team for more ideas and support.

Take part in an existing event

We have events happening throughout the year including Oxjam, Trailwalker, running, cycling and more.

You could always link up with your Local Fundraising Group.

2. Plan your event

We have a whole range of downloadable resource that you can use to support your fundraising. If you need anything extra, like such as tins or buckets, posters, balloons, stickers by calling 0300 200 1300 or emailing

3. Promote your event

4. Enjoy your event

Congratulations, you've made it to the big day. Take lots of photos, we'd love to see them and remember that you are saving lives. To see the impact of your fundraising visit our impact page.

5. Pay in your fundraising

Paying in your fundraising online

If you raised money doing your own fundraiser you can pay it in online using our general fundraising donation form. It is quick, easy and secure!

Pay by post

To pay by post please send a cheque, made payable to 'Oxfam' with a Paying-in form.

Pay by phone

To pay your fundraising over the phone please call our Supporter Relations team on 0300 200 1300 and they'll be happy to help.

Online fundraising pages

If you've set up an Oxfam online fundraising page, the money donated by your sponsors will automatically be sent to us - you don't have to do a thing! Just encourage as many people as you can to make a donation on your page. Set up a page here.
