Planning your fundraising

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

We have a wide range of resources on this website, but if you need more help please contact your local Regional Engagement Manager.

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 your Regional Engagement Manager 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.

Organising your own event

You can get ideas for your own fundraising online or we have plenty of ideas in our fundraising pack.

2. Plan your event

You can start by ordering a fundraising pack which will give you most of the materials you need. If you need anything extra, like such as tins or buckets, posters, balloons, stickers by calling 0300 200 1300 or emailing fundraising@oxfam.org.uk or getting in touch with your local Regional Fundraising Manager. Downloadable versions of these materials can be found here.

3. Promote your event
