Student-led fundraising is a fantastic way to showcase your passion about a specific charity or a social issue. Some of the ways that students are involved in charitable endeavours can include organising quiz competitions, spellathons, charity dinners, cake stalls, fun runs, a gala, or even a raffle.

Aside from being given the opportunity to directly support a cause that you are passionate about, organising a fundraiser can demonstrate and develop a number of skills. These include a manifest demonstration of a commitment to your charity's cause, the ability to build and maintain relationships, creativity, imagination and an entrepreneurial attitude towards fundraising. It also involves having good organisational and project management skills, and the ability to motivate others and work as part of a team.
