Organise A Fundraiser

Organise A Fundraiser

Make-A-Wish Ireland receives no government funding and relies entirely on the generosity and support of individuals like you. We’re always looking for new and exciting fundraising events to support, so if you have an interesting idea then we’d love to hear from you.

How you can help us to grant wishes by virtual fundraising;

  • Decide on the fundraising activity that suits you best! 
  • Register your event by filling out the form below, so we can help with making your fundraiser a success.
  • Set up your fundraising page, we recommend DonorBox. Contact Sheila@makeawish.ie to set up!
  • Decide what platform you are going to use for your virtual event; Zoom, Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, Mixer, etc.
  • Invite and promote your virtual fundraising event with your family, friends and colleagues. 

Here are a few examples of virtual events that you could host;

Online quiz: Organise a competitive and fun online quiz amongst family, friends or work colleagues! Create questions for each of the rounds and get ready to become the ultimate quizmaster. We recommend organising the quiz through Zoom or Facebook. During the quiz you can post a link to the Make-A-Wish donation page which can be shared in the 'chat box' if using Zoom.

Virtual night in: Organise a virtual meet up with family, friends or colleagues in aid of Make-A-Wish. Ask for a donation by sharing makeawish.ie/donate at the start of the night! We would recommend meeting through Facebook or Zoom. 

Virtual movie or book club: Create a virtual movie or book club with your family and friends. You can share the link to donate before you start; makeawish.ie/donate. We recommend for the club to meet on Link to Zoom.

Virtual coffee morning: Organise donations through the Make-A-Wish donate page; makeawish.ie/donate and chat with friends and family on Facebook or Zoom with a cup of tea or coffee in hand.

Virtual birthday party: Organise a Facebook birthday donation fundraiser here or, host the party on on Zoom. If using Zoom ask for donations by sharing the makeawish.ie/donate link in the chat during the celebrations! 

Virtual walk or run: Organise a walking or running challenge with family, friends or colleagues and share the makeawish.ie donation page here.

Grow, shave or dye your hair: With there being no hairdressers open currently, there is no better time to experiment with this fun hair challenge! Set up a Facebook fundraiser here.

Charity livestream: Live table quiz, gaming, board games, chess game etc. Publicise your event and ask for donations during the fundraiser! We recommend using Twtich, YouTube or Facebook, and share the Make-A-Wish donation page during the stream. *Twitch and YouTube can be integrated to a justgiving.com page that can show your live Twitch/ YouTube event.
