With your birthday coming up, why not do something extra special to celebrate this year?

Get started

Do something different this year and dedicate your big day to a cause you care about! Whether you’re celebrating a big birthday or planning on keeping it low-key, a birthday fundraiser is perfect for any milestone.

Simple and secure, it’s a great way for friends and family to show that they care by supporting a cause close to your heart. Not only does their donation make a meaningful gift, it will also play a key part in changing the lives of others. Plus, once your birthday fundraiser is complete it may even inspire them to continue giving to your chosen charity or set up their own birthday fundraiser!
