Fundraise For Us

Getting together with friends, family and colleagues or taking on a personal challenge is a great way to support Young Enterprise.

There’s so much that you could do to fundraise for us. You could take part in an organised event such as a run, triathlon, abseil. Or why not organise your own event; from holding a concert, to washing cars, to collections and sponsored silences – the options are limitless.

Have a look below for our suggestions and ideas for more inspiration. If you’re still stuck for what to do, or you’d like more information about one of our events get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.

By fundraising for Young Enterprise you’ll help to change lives and save young people from ever having to face a life of lost potential. We believe that all young people should be given the best chance for a rewarding future in work and life – no matter where they start their journey. Your support will help make Young Enterprise possible – thank you.
