School Fundraisers For Charity

Rally your school to raise funds for Action Against Hunger

Gather your friends, family and classmates around a fundraising campaign to save children from hunger. With your school involved, you have the power to make a lasting, positive impact on the world.

Your first step is to talk to your school administrators about forming a club or hosting an activity. Once you have permission from your school, set a date for your fundraising event and unite the power of your classmates to raise funds for global hunger.

Why Hunger?

Around 821 million people go to bed hungry every night, and nearly half of all child deaths worldwide are linked to causes related to malnutrition.

Many young children never get a chance to live beyond the age of five — even though we can predict, prevent, and treat malnutrition. 

We are the world’s hunger specialist. We have the knowledge and tools to save the lives of malnourished children. We helped more than 21 million people in 2018 with our lifesaving programs, but we need more funds to expand our reach and create a future where no child dies of hunger.

How To Create Your Fundraiser

  1. Ask your school for permission to host a fundraising event.
  2. Create a fundraising profile page.
  3. Share with your classmates, friends and family. 
  4. Receive donations and help us save lives! 

After you have permission to host a school fundraising event, sign up here to create your Action Against Hunger fundraising page. It takes just a few minutes to complete. 

Now you have a personal fundraising page that you can share with classmates, friends and family via email, text message and social media. 

You can also connect your Action Against Hunger page directly to Facebook (instructions below), making it easier than ever to collect your donations on social media. 

Once donations start rolling in, you will receive notifications for every gift, allowing you to say thanks for their contribution. The funds you raise will go towards our lifesaving programs, and you will be helping us to save lives and end hunger for good.

Coronavirus update: your help is needed more than ever.

As COVID-19 spreads around the world, it poses a grave danger to communities with struggling health systems. In some hard-to-reach areas, Action Against Hunger is the only organization providing healthcare — we must step up and respond to this pandemic.

Help us to support families affected by the coronavirus pandemic by starting a fundraising campaign. 

School Fundraising Ideas

Here are some ideas on how to raise money with your school:

  1. Host a sponsored swim, walk or run. 
  2. Have a cake sale or run a lemonade stand. 
  3. Run a talent show and ask for donations to watch. 
  4. Host a movie night.
  5. Have a book sale. Ask students to bring in books they no longer need.
  6. Host an ice cream fundraiser. 
  7. Create and sell charity wristbands or other craft creations.
  8. Have a themed dress-up day.
  9. Host a video game tournament.
  10. Run a school quiz. 

Connect to Facebook

Connecting your fundraising page to Facebook allows you to collect donations directly on Facebook and have them be added to your Action Against Hunger page automatically. 

Facebook makes it really easy to share your fundraiser with friends and family on the platform and can help you receive more lifesaving donations.

Step 1: During signup, you will have the option to connect your page to Facebook.
