Tips and Tricks for Fundraising


  1. Do it together: Raising funds is more fun and way easier if you do it with your friends, classmates or colleagues. The bigger the group of people, the less a single person has to raise in order to reach your financial goal.
  2. Be creative: There are various activities you can organise to raise funds. You can also find a few examples below.
  3. Tell the story: If people know the story of corals and why it is so important that you raise money for a coral table, there is a higher chance they will help out.
  4. Have fun: Organise something that excites you. If you are having fun, then so are the people who might make a donation. Enthusiasm is contagious!
  5. Make the connection: Link your fundraising activity to your goal. You can, for example, implement recycling into your event or make some coral-full decorations!

Examples of Activities

  • Arrange a school fair: You can sell a variety of things to raise money. Such as items from your own home, home baked goodies, your own coral art or even an activity or performance.
  • Organise an auction: Instead of selling things at a school fair, people can also bid on items or activities that are on offer. If you are a good dancer, you can offer a dancing lesson, for example. Or make a big piece of art with the whole class. Try to be sustainable with what you offer!
  • Host a raffle: Sell tickets and organise some cool prizes. You can also host a small lottery as part of a school fair or auction.
  • Organise a themed race: Set out a course on the beach, in a forest or through the neighbourhood. Ask your friends and family to sponsor a certain amount of money for every lap you complete. This can also be done for various other sport activities such as cycling, swimming or even obstacle races.
  • Offer help with chores: Clean up your neighbourhood, help your school with some chores or help out in the canteen of your sport club.
  • Organise a great evening out: A student-concert, a karaoke night, a musical, a talent show, a quiz night, a cook off or even a coral themed movie night. You can raise funds by selling tickets and, of course, some drinks and snacks too.
  • Matched giving: Reach out to local organisations, your school, sports club or family members who can match a certain amount of money you have raised. This is a great way to boost your funds!
