From coffee mornings to running marathons, supporters across the UK are finding fun and creative ways to raise money for Fairtrade.

Whether you fundraise in a group or on your own, at school, university or in your community, we’re here to support you with great ideas and resources.

How do I pay in my fundraising money?

Or print off a pay-in slip and send us a cheque made payable to ‘The Fairtrade Foundation’ to:

FREEPOST RTZT-ACTL-BCGR, Fairtrade Foundation, 5.7 The Loom, 14 Gower’s Walk, London, E1 8PY.

Please do not send us money in the post as we are unable to process this.

If you would like a certificate, please provide your mailing address when submitting your donation.

How do I come up with a good fundraising idea?

From fashion shows to Fairtrade banana jousting, our supporters constantly amaze us with the weird and wonderful events they hold to fundraise.

Some popular ideas include:

  • Bake sales and coffee mornings
  • Holding a Fairtrade raffle
  • Chocolate or wine-tasting sessions
  • Organising a sports match – ask the players to donate a match fee to Fairtrade
  • Hold a quiz!

If you’re feeling active, you could do a fundraising challenge and ask your friends and family to sponsor you with a donation.
