Over the last ten weeks, the world has changed dramatically with fundraising events and normal life coming to a grinding halt. This has left many charities feeling lost and struggling to gain donations whilst trying to keep their services running for many patients and their families. The lockdown has left many feeling thankful for the internet by enabling them to keep in touch with their families and friends. The team at make a smile lottery have come up with a range of virtual fundraising ideas.

Fundraising Idea: Virtual marathon

One of the many ways you can raise money for charities is by hosting a virtual marathon. This fundraising idea does not have to mean running but it could be something which will suit your audience’s strengths and interests. Some marathon ideas include cooking, watching a specific genre of film, listening to a certain type of music, or hosting an online gaming tournament.

Host a virtual talent show

This fundraising idea is very inclusive of both your staff and your audience. If your colleague has an exceptional voice or a fun party trick, a virtual talent show could be a great way to boost morale and raise money.
