Fundraising from home
There are many ways to fundraise and help us make the ordinary possible for children and young with autism from the comfort of your own home. We’ve put together a few suggestions to help you get started. Don’t forget to encourage your friends and families to join too!
Host an online quiz
Become a quiz master and ask friends, family and colleagues to take part in your very own virtual quiz on video call.
Charge an entry fee with donations made direct to our donations page.
It's time to get quizzical!
Donate your commuting savings
With many people currently working from home, we aren’t spending as much as before on travel.
Why not donate the money you’ve saved from your commute to a good cause? Whether it’s a day’s travel or a months, it all makes a difference.
It is your birthday, ask for donations
An easy way to fundraise for us is setting up a birthday donation link on Facebook and asking for donations instead of presents this year.
At the same time, you’ll be helping to make the ordinary possible for children and young people with autism.
Run a virtual class
Do you have any hidden skills that you’re bursting to share?
Whether it’s yoga, brilliant recipe ideas, or teaching a foreign language, share your skills with your friends and family virtually and support children and young people with autism.
Ask your participants to donate per class.
Missing out on drinks after work with colleagues?
Host a virtual drinks evening for a good cause and donate what you would spend at the pub.
Do you miss going on movie nights with your friends?
Grab your popcorn and drink, and host a movie night by using the Netflix Party Chrome Extension for your friends, with everyone logging on from the comfort of their own sofa.
Donate the cost of your cinema ticket.
House clear out
Spending more time at home and finally got around to that spring cleaning and clear out?
Sell your unwanted items on eBay and donate a percentage of the profits to help make the ordinary possible for children and young people with autism.
Have you missed socialising with friends and family?
Why not host an intimate dinner party, either virtually or following social distancing guidelines.
Ask for donations to cover what you would have spent at a fancy restaurant.
Drawing, baking, photography or lego building, create a competition based on your interests.
Choose your judge, set up an event on Facebook and ask people to donate to take part or to be able to vote.
Chores for cash
Challenge your kids to raise money by completing tasks like cooking, washing up and tidying their rooms, with prizes for meeting their goals!
