Fundraise for War on Want

Run, walk, cycle, swap, bake, party... there are lots of ways to raise money for War on Want. And we’re here to help out with ideas, advice, materials and so much more.

Taking on a personal challenge is a great way to get friends and family to sponsor you for doing something inspirational. Or you could hold a bake-sale, clothes swap or pub quiz to raise money.

You can also add a touch of global justice to your celebrations. Whether you're celebrating an anniversary, birthday, retirement or wedding, you can ask your friends and family to make a donation instead of gifts to you.

For helpful ideas, practical advice, materials and more, please get in touch with us about your fundraising. We're happy to help! Give us a call on 020 7324 5040 or email us at

Set up an online fundraising page

Setting up a personalised online sponsorship page is a quick and easy way to invite friends and family to make a donation, and to keep track of how much you’re raising. 

You can create a page with Virgin Money Giving – they’ll send the donations directly to War on Want, and automatically claim Gift Aid on any eligible donations, adding an extra 25% to your fundraising at no extra cost to you or your supporters.

Make the page yours with a story and photos, and then share your page with friends and watch as the donations start rolling in.
