Does your school want to raise much needed funds for the education of Cambodian children? As a Solidarity Schools partner, you are already familiar with why Cambodian children need your help and how every € raised makes a difference in the lives of many children trying to stay at school and access a quality education.
Here at SeeBeyondBorders Ireland we are delighted to support your fundraising initiative to give Cambodian children access to a quality education and a chance to live up to their potential.
All funds raised will be shared equally between SeeBeyondBorders Ireland and our partners PEPY.
If you wish to fundraise, there are three easy steps:
Get an idea –
Plan how you are going to raise funds and make sure you build in the fun factor! It could be a sponsored personal challenge, a fundraising sale, donating the profits of an event, or requesting donations in lieu of gifts for a personal celebration – birthdays, anniversaries etc.
Get to it –
Once your plan is approved it’s now time to get out there, put your plan into action and raise funds. Social media platforms are a great, free way of sharing your fundraising progress and spreading awareness. Remember to be interactive with donors; share photos, updates and thank them for their donation. Online fundraising pages are an easy way for family, friends and colleagues to make a donation towards your event or challenge with your fundraising progress tracked on the page.
We appreciate the time and effort put into fundraising. Thank you for recognising the importance of our work and choosing to support us.
You can also help by spreading the word about the Solidarity Schools Network. Once our pilot programme is evaluated, we will be keen to increase our footprint across the island of Ireland and if you know of other schools across the country that might be interested, please do not hesitate to pass on our contact details. Your voice can be a voice for change.
To help you in your fundraising event, we have put together a Fundraising Toolkit which we hope you will find helpful. It will walk you through the process of formulating an idea, developing a plan, and putting the plan into action to help maximise your fundraising potential!
