Raising money can be fun and an easy way for your church to engage with issues of poverty and disadvantage.

A large percentage of our income comes from individuals and groups in church communities. Their generosity enables and underpins our work with disadvantaged and vulnerable children. 

Our fundraising is just one response to our prayer and worship, and we are committed to providing resources to help you do both. 

Ways you can raise funds

There are numerous ways your church can support our work.

They include holding special services, organising group events and performing collections.

Do something this summer

Get together with your church this summer to host a Big Summer DO and help bring childhood back to those at risk of losing theirs.

Maybe you already hold an annual picnic or summer fete. If so, use our tips to turn it into a Big Summer DO fundraiser too. Or if your calendar looks a bit quiet come July, how about throwing a garden party, BBQ or even a silly sports
day as a way to reach out to families in your area?

We've got lots of ideas and free resources to get you started.

Special services

Services like Christingle or Mothering Sunday often bring new people into church, and reach out to children and young people in your area.

Or why not chose a Christening gift that makes a difference to some of our country's most disadvantaged children?


You could do a Collection for Children, which is easy to adapt to your own context. Or keep a collection box in your home or church, an easy and effective way of getting rid of your loose change. These alone bring in over £2 million every year. 

Other ideas

There are many ways to support our work – you can creative and do something totally different. You’ll find plenty of ideas in our Fundraising and events section.
