Top ten fundraising ideas

There are lots of fun and easy ways to raise funds for Oxfam. Here are our top ten.

1. Bake sale

You can’t beat a good old fashioned bake sale. Ask people to bring their sweet treats into your work, school or community group to sell.

2. Mufti day

Keep it simple with a dress down day at work or school.

3. Sausage sizzle

A Kiwi favourite, you can’t beat a sausage sizzle.

4. Quiz night

At the office, in the pub, round someone’s house download some online questions, get a bunch of mates together and test each others knowledge. Donate the team entry fees to Oxfam.

5. Movie night

All you need is popcorn and DVDs! Invite your friends or family round for a blockbuster evening, asking them to donate the price of a cinema trip to Oxfam. Or go the extra mile, and hire your local cinema! Friends pay for their tickets to watch a new release and all the profits come to Oxfam.

6. Host a Fairtrade morning tea / coffee break

A popular way to do have fun and raise money at home, in the office or wherever!

7. Clothes swap / jumble sale

Clear your wardrobe of clothes you no longer wear and get your friends to do the same. Invite them to your place, charge them an entry fee, and enjoy a clothes swap. Looking good!

8. BBQ

Ask your friends for a small donation and cook them up a classic Kiwi barbie.

9. Sponsored walk / cycle / run / footie game

Do something you love (or hate) and ask your friends and family to sponsor you.

10. Sell stuff on Trademe

Have a spring clean and put the things you no longer need up on TradeMe. Watch the bids fly in and donate the proceeds to Oxfam.
