Fundraising ideas

Get inspired by our favourite fundraising ideas

Whether you take on the Kiltwalk or organise a World AIDS Day event, your fundraising will help Waverley Care to end HIV stigma for good.

Take on a sponsored challenge

Whether you’re up for the Edinburgh Marathon or Great Scottish Run, all you need to do is choose your challenge and ask friends and family to sponsor your hard work. The average amount raised by our Kiltwalkers is a huge £500!

To get started, choose an event and create your online fundraising page on JustGiving.


Organise a bucket collection

Could you rally a group of friends or colleagues to collect donations? We’d love to help you organise a bucket shake in your local shopping centre, theatre, university, workplace or on the nearby high street. We’ll provide you with materials, and help you secure a permit from the council or permission from the venue. Learn more about bucket shaking.


Host an event

Do you love baking? Host a bake sale. What about quizzes? Talk to your local venue about hosting a pub quiz or drag show. We’d love to work with you to organise a ceilidh, brunch, party or dress down day (or dress up night). You could include a raffle to raise even more. Learn more about hosting an event.


Celebration giving

Share the love on your special occasion. Asking for donations to Waverley Care instead of gifts and cards works great for birthdays, anniversaries, retirements and weddings. You can set-up an online giving page on JustGiving or host a party to fundraise.

Register your fundraising
