 How do I fundraise for Kidscan?

Fundraising can be easier than you think! You can setup an online donation page or use one of our paper sponsor forms to get your fundraising off to a great start.

If you want to boost your fundraising you could run a sweepstake, asking people to make a donation in order to guess how long your run will take you. You can also run your own ‘mini fundraisers’ to raise extra money. These are usually small events like bake sales that are easy to organise and plan.
