Students! Are you passionate about design and development? Do you have the creativity and commitment to become an Article 25 fundraiser or to raise awareness of our cause? If so, there are lots of ways you can get involved.
Up and down the country our Students raise awareness amongst students of the importance of good design in sustainable, replicable development and raise funds to support our projects.
Led by students wanting to engage in a humanitarian challenge, Chapters give students networking opportunities and a chance to research how to best support the world’s poorest people to create the infrastructure they need. Chapters also provide an opportunity to meet like minded people, raise money for us and have fun.
Fundraise as an individual
Student fundraising is great fun and something that helps our work enormously, such as the center for cleft lip and cleft palate reconstruction we are building in Eastern Morocco, or the work we are doing in Afghanistan. There are many ways to raise money for us, and our fundraising team are always on hand to help. Your efforts fund our vital work in constructing safe, sustainable buildings wherever they are needed most.
- Who doesn’t love Lego? Think of the fun you could have as part of a Lego fundraising night. Dig out your old Lego, hit ebay, or borrow some. Once you’ve collected as much as possible arrange a suitable venue (local pubs or your union are great) for a Lego night. Recruit small teams and set them a range of Lego challenges, such as building the best robot, or, taking inspiration from our work, perhaps build a model of an eco-friendly school. Charge everyone a fiver to enter (and see if the pub will let you keep some of the bar takings), have a great night and build a better world.
- You could follow in the Nottingham Student Chapters footsteps and hold a masked ball in your Student Union. Why not see if the bar can offer you a deal on you getting a portion of drink sales?
- Movie nights can be a great way to raise money. Arrange a screening somewhere and charge people a small entry fee, or alternatively you can do the classic quiz night!
- Could you fundraise around a university event? The opening of a new building opening at your university, perhaps or an annual party? We can provide you with collection buckets and resources for this.
We are here to support your efforts, so get in touch. Of course student chapters are also always welcome to take part in one of our challenge events.
