CEF is a community-driven organisation that receives no government funding. Holding a fundraising event or campaign is a great way to support CEF, engage with your community or workplace, and have some fun too. You can choose to fundraise for CEF as a national organisation, or you can fundraise for one of our 46 local CEF foundations that is close to your heart.

When you choose to fundraise for CEF, we can provided you with plenty of support to make your event or campaign a success. This can include thinks like:

  • Collateral to promote your event
  • A dedicated page on the CEF website to advertise and accept donations
  • Media and communications support
  • Access to CEF’s network to promote your generosity
  • Addition of you event to the CEF calendar


There are endless ways you can raise funds for CEF. Every option has its pros and cons, but the most important thing is that you do something that will resonate with your community or the group of people you are targeting.

Events are often the staple of fundraising for our foundations. There are so many types of events from a basic chocolate fundraiser to an extravagant cocktail party right through to pushing a paper mâché pig across the country … but there is one thing that stays a constant … it must make money!

Whatever your event, some key points to think about to make sure it is a success are whywhen and how … you will also need a key driver (that could be you!) and a great team behind you.
