Lesson Excerpt:

Part A: Fundraising

Ask the class why they think charities need money. What do they understand by the term ‘fundraising’?

Like everyone else, charities have to pay for the goods they buy and the services they use to do their work. They need a regular income to pay for their supplies, staff, training, transport, printing costs and many other expenses.  Some charities receive money from the government, but many rely on the public’s generosity to support their work.

Fundraising involves asking members of the public or companies to give money to support the organization. This is known as a donation and people who give money to charities are called donors. 

How do charities fundraise?

Ask the class what examples they’ve come across of charities asking people for money. This could be in their parents’ home, in the media, on-line or in their community.
