General fundraising ideas
Here are some general ideas below on how you can get involved:
- Did you know that you can support Creativity Works every time you shop online – at no cost to you? With Give as you Live, thousands of brands including Sainsburys, John Lewis and Expedia have signed up to donate a percentage of every purchase you make online to us. All at no cost to you and at no cost to us. Please help by telling all your friends and family.
- Host a Creative Supper Club, fundraising event or Creative Ramble. Or simply come along!
- Gifts in kind: providing your experience and advice, venues for events, or items for auction will help our fundraising activities and reduce costs.
- Asking your employer to consider us as their Charity of the Year or put on a fundraiser for us.
- Buying Creativity Works gifts: instead of corporate gifts or Christmas cards. These include scintillating and immersive creative gift experiences, sessions and workshops.
- Promoting: Creativity Works on your blog or website, tweet or like us on Facebook, link with us on LinkedIn!
- Persuade your local group, club, bunch of friends or neighbours to club together to buy in one of our artists to learn a new skill-willow weaving, print making, stain glass window making
- Events you could host and charge entry for / fundraise at:
- Creative Exchange. Swap your skills and talents for someone else’s – a massage for a knitting lesson, a stain glass window session for an etching lesson…trade in a collection of books for your pile of ironing!
- A Creative Obstacle course. Find a park, lay out some weird and wonderful obstacles and time people to complete. BBQ to enhance the fun. Revive the 80s game- It’s a Knock Out – silly costumes and silly games
- Singing and poetry reading around community centres, pubs
- Open up your house and garden for a creative ensemble – a magical evening, or ‘what 3 things you would save from your house and why’ followed by your Desert Island Disc favourites
