Top Fundraising Ideas

SOLD! – De-junk that wardrobe and have a good clear out. Sell your things on Ebay and choose to donate a % of the sale price to Exeter Deaf Academy.

Head/Beard Shave – brave the cold and clip those locks – get sponsored for the deed and even organise a mini party at your local hairdressers so people can come and watch – a leg wax is a great alternative.

Sweepstake – hold a sweepstake at work or with friends. Choose a topic, from the Football results, new baby weight or sweets in a jar.

Dress Down Day – Organise a dress down day at work or school, come in your casual clothes, wear a themed jumper or dress up in Purple for the day and make a donation.

Supermarket Collection – Ask your local supermarket for permission to hold a bucket collection. Recruit some friends and family to help and we can provide you with lots of buckets and information.

Sports Match – organise a charity cricket, football, tennis or darts match. A great way to have some fun with friends whilst raising money and you could include a raffle or cake sale.

Give it up day/week/month – give something up for a day week or month and get sponsored for it. Whether it’s screen time, TV, smoking or drinking what would your friends and family sponsor you to give up?

Voice Off Sponsored Silence – The Deaf children at The Academy face communication challenges every day. Why not turn your voice off for the day, get sponsored, and see how else you might be able to communicate (text, mime, hand signals, writing).
