Seasonal Fundraising Ideas

Halloween Fundraising Ideas

  • Host a Halloween fancy dress party – ask for a small donation to go to work, school, or with family and friends in your spookiest costumes and the best dressed could win a small prize! You could hold some Halloween themed games – such as ‘Splat the Bat’ or Apple Bobbing.  
  • A bake sale is a classic fundraising idea why not put on a freaky twist? Make some ghoulish cakes, cookies, and biscuits and sell them to help aid your fundraising. You can download some recipes here.
  • Hold a pumpkin carving competition, in return for a small donation your family, friends or colleagues can compete to have the best spooky design!
  • Play Guess the name of the Witch’s cat! Purchase a small black cat teddy and come up with some names
  • Set up a Witches hockey tournament and use your brooms as hockey sticks with each team being sponsored. Whilst people are watching get your best bucket collectors out to fundraise in the crowd.
