From bake sales to sponsored silences, and sporting challenges to artwork auctions, there are so many ways that you can start raising vital funds for Schools of Sanctuary.

Unlike most school award schemes and programmes, all the support, resources and events we offer and the award itself are completely free – but we need YOUR support to safeguard the future of Schools of Sanctuary.

The City of Sanctuary UK fundraising pack is filled to the brim with inspiration, ideas and support ensuring your fundraiser goes off with a bang. Download it today and start planning how you can help build this movement of welcome for people seeking sanctuary.

Fundraising Ideas

This primary school in Suffolk made beautiful illustrated packets and sold sunflower seeds in order to support our work with schools. They sold them at their summer fete and even reached out to their local Lush store to sell them there.
Could your class or school run a seed or cake sale?

Children at this Preston Primary school organised a silent sponsored walk to raise money for Schools of Sanctuary.
Could your pupils think about the difficult journeys people seeking safety make whilst doing a sponsored run or walk?
