Fundraising ideas

Want to fundraise for Make-A-Wish but not sure what to do? Whether you're new to fundraising or you’re a complete pro, we could all do with a bit of inspiration from time-to-time.

We've got something for all ages and abilities, from gruelling challenges to something that won’t take up much of your time. Let us help to find something that’s right for you.

From marathons to toddler triathlons, Bake-A-Wish to bungee jumps and danceathons to sponsored silences; everyone can help us grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Virtual fundraising ideas

We’re all staying home right now but that doesn’t mean we can't stay connected with friends, colleagues and family, and help raise money for wishes at the same time.

We’ve put together some fundraising ideas that can be done from the comfort of your own living room, bedroom, garden, or literally anywhere in your home!
