Colleagues giving each other a high five

Fundraising At Work

Gather your colleagues to raise funds for Action Against Hunger

Fundraising at work allows you to bring together the collective power of your colleagues to help save children from hunger. People love to support worthy causes, so why not take on a lifesaving challenge? Your team could make a lasting, positive impact on the world. 

You can host potlucks, baking challenges, quizzes, fitness challenges or workouts, sweepstakes, karaoke, fancy dress, or any other creative ideas you can think of! Many fundraising activities can be live-streamed so you can involve colleagues across the country or world. 

Be sure to talk with your HR department about your campaign for Action Against Hunger as they may be able to match your gifts. A matching sponsor will double your impact and encourage more people to get involved.

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.

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 outbreak by running your own work fundraiser.

Corporate Fundraising Ideas

Here are some more ideas for fundraising at work. You don’t need to choose just one event. Some fundraisers host a series of events to maximize their funds raised. 

  1. Host a sponsored swim, walk or run. 
  2. Have a cake sale or potluck. 
  3. Run a talent show or karaoke competition. 
  4. Have a book sale. Ask colleagues to bring in unused books. 
  5. Host an ice cream fundraiser. 
  6. Add a spare change jar to your reception. Be bold and take it round to desks. 
  7. Create charity wristbands or other craft creations.
  8. Have a themed dress-up day.
  9. Host a video game tournament.
  10. Run a quiz. 

How To Host A Work Fundraiser

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

After you have permission to host a work 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 link that you can share 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 donations on social media. 

Once donations start rolling in, you will receive notifications for every gift, allowing you to share your gratitude for their contribution. Together, you will be making a powerful, lifesaving impact. 

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.
