Fundraising for your DO
While your fundraising event should be about having fun, the money you raise has a very serious use. It helps us support children suffering through poverty and neglect in our country.
We're here to help as you plan, promote and fundraise for your DO. Follow our simple five step process and make your DO a success.
Step 1: Register and receive our DO-ers guide to doing
Registration only takes a few minutes and will mean we can send you our fantastic guide packed full of ideas, tips and stories.
It also helps us support you with whatever you decide to do.
Step 2: Decide what you are going to do
Being a DO-er is about being imaginative and creative, so think of something you love to do or perhaps something you’ve always wanted to do. But do it for us and do it for the thousands of children that need you to fundraise for them.
Step 3: Tell us about your DO
We want to help make your DO, no matter how big or small it is, as much of a hit as possible. Use our online form to tell us about your event. It might even become our ‘DO of the month’!
We can get you started by giving you the tools to raise money online. Using information you provide, we’ll set up a JustGiving page and your own page on our website, which you can share with family and friends.
It won’t take long so register your DO with us now.
Step 4: Doing your DO
So you know what you are going to do and you’ve told us about it – now is the time to do it! We’ll be in touch to offer you resources and advice but take a look round our resource centre as you’ll find most of what you need to make your DO a success available to download for free.
We can also offer materials that don’t fit through a computer screen, so check out our online shop for stuff like balloons, posters and collecting buckets. It’s all free for our wonderful DO-ers!
Step 5: Send us any donations (and have a rest!)
Your DO went superbly and everyone had a great time while raising lots of money - well, that’s the plan. Regardless, you deserve a well-earned rest.
But we’d like to do what we do best and use the money you’ve raised to help vulnerable children. So please send any donations to us as soon as you can. There are a few ways to do this:
- Use your JustGiving page to donate – any money donated through this page will come directly to us and we can even get additional money from Gift Aid.
- Pay in online through our website (coming soon).
- Send us a cheque – include a note to tell us who you are, what the donation is for, and make cheques payable to The Children’s Society. Then send these documents to:
The Children’s Society

- Use one of our pre-printed giros to pay in to our bank account at any Barclays branch. You can order a giro from our online shop or by calling us at 0300 3030 555.
