Unlocking the educational potential of fundraising activities

Unlocking the educational potential of fundraising activities

Involvement in fundraising activities can be motivating and fun for young people as well as supporting charities in their work. Such experiences also have huge educational potential, offering opportunities to develop young people’s understanding and skills as active, responsible citizens. This document explores good practice in fundraising with young people.

DEA has brought together a group of twelve charities involved in development and humanitarian action, including Oxfam, CAFOD, Unicef, British Red Cross and Islamic Relief, to develop and highlight their shared understanding of good practice in fundraising with young people. These organisations believe that fundraising activities that fulfil their educational potential support young people to participate in decision-making, explore the work of charities, engage with underlying issues, consider a range of ways to effect change and carry out safe, effective fundraising.
