School fundraising

There are many benefits to fundraising. Students gain valuable leadership skills and confidence. Fundraisers require students to work with each other, as well as their parents and teachers in order to meet their overall goal, and this teaches them teamwork. Students are also taught the importance of community, creativity, caring about others, and improving the common environment. 

Fundraising also allows parents to get involved and play a more active role in their children’s lives. Finally, additional funds allow Cyfannol to keep the support going for those in need. It’s a win-win! 

Charity for the year 

Thinking of fundraising all year for a charity, why not make it a local charity?  

Supporting Cyfannol Women’s Aid throughout the school year is a great way to engage your students with our work and raise vital funds through enjoyable fundraising activities. 

Cyfannol can help children and young people understand about violence against women, domestic abuse, and sexual violence in an age appropriate way, and develop an awareness on what healthy relationships are. We’ve put together some resources you can use already. visit our self help page and filter to children and young people.

Whether you’ve supported us before, or you’re new to Cyfannol Women’s Aid we’d love to have you on board.

First Give 

First Give works in partnership with secondary schools across the UK, inspiring and empowering young people to take action to make a positive change in society through an innovative and interactive programme. 

Here are the steps of how it works: 

  • Students learn about social issues in their communities & choose the issues which are important to them. 

  • Students research charities working in their communities and as a class, choose one to represent. 

  • Charities are invited in to meet the class, so that students can learn more about their work and how to help them. 

  • Students plan and deliver social action activities (fundraising, awareness raising, volunteering) in support of their charities. 

  • Students learn public speaking skills

School fundraising ideas:

Pyjama Day in School

Your students will be thrilled by this quick and easy school fundraising idea! Tell the children they can attend school in their pyjamas for one day in exchange for donations.

School Sleepovers

Have a sleepover at the school to raise funds. Inform the parents of each student about what they need to bring, and organise fun activities, games, or a movie for the children to enjoy.

Jellybean Count Fundraiser

Place a jar of jelly beans in the hallway of your school. Offer students one or two pounds to guess the number of jellybeans in the jar. Whoever was closest will get the jar.

Colour Run Fundraiser 

Raise money by charging a participation fee and have students wear white tee shirts. At specific checkpoints, volunteers will throw water balloons containing paint at them.


A great way to raise money is to arrange a walk-a-thon. Depending on where your school is and how your students get to school, you can raise a good amount of funds! 

Christmas Jumper day

Host a Christmas Jumper day on 9th December, wither it be the best Christmas jumpers or an ugly Christmas jumper. Everyone who takes part pays a pound, don’t forget photos.
