Bake sales have always been a fun (and tasty) way to raise money for the charities you care about. Fundraisers of any age can put on their aprons and bake some delicious snacks for a good cause. Whether it’s cookies, cakes or buns… sweet treats are a great way to draw in more donors.
Set up a stall at your local community centre, school or workplace – put a smile on peoples’ faces whilst raising funds for a cause close to your heart. In the age of online fundraising, you no longer have to rely on donors carrying cash – you can accept online donations directly through your JustGiving page and a personalised QR code. Print it out and hang it by your stall, and watch the donations come rolling in!
Set up a page today to raise money for a charity and share with your family and friends. You might be surprised how much you can raise for your chosen cause when you combine your hard work in the kitchen with an online fundraising page.
