We need your help
Action for Women is an independent, non-proﬁt organisation funded entirely by private donations and run by non-salaried volunteers. This ensures that your donations go directly towards helping women on the run and allows us to respond dynamically to the ever-changing situation.
There are many ways that you can raise funds to support women in desperate need. We welcome individual or group fundraising eﬀorts and no eﬀort is too small. Whether it’s an athletic challenge, a special occasion, an event or your own unique creation, you can make a big diﬀerence to a woman’s life… and have a great time doing it.
If you register your event with us in advance we will share with you some tips and tools to make it easier for you to publicise or run your activity. If you have any questions please contact us directly.
Thank you for your support.
Ideas for creating your own fundraiser
Donate your birthday or other special occasion
Make a diﬀerence by asking for donations instead of gifts on your next birthday or other special occasion. Pre-register your activity with us and receive some tips and tools to make it easier for you to share information about our organization.
Ready? Set? Run! (or swim, cycle, dance, etc.!)
Organise a sponsored event like a shared marathon, half-marathon or 5k race in honour of Action for Women. Or ask your local gym to nominate a day, or simply a class, where participants donate the equivalent of their class fee.
Organise a pub quiz
Holding a quiz is simple, popular and profitable – with a little forward planning! In one night hundreds and even thousands of francs can be raised for relatively little capital outlay, while participants have a lot of fun and an opportunity to win prizes, while raising money for a good cause.
Hold a book & bake sale
Popular with schools and local communities, a book & bake sale relies on relatively small donations from a lot of people. It’s a chance to clear out the bookshelves and get the whole family involved in baking. Additional activities could include a raffle or tombola, a ‘guess the weight of the cake’ competition and decorate your own cookies. The ideas are endless!
