Fundraising Resources


Here at Warwick SU we want to support you in organising innovative fundraising events. Whilst bake sales might sound simple, they're actually pretty labour intensive and don't generally have a high return on donations for your efforts. Did you know, the average Warwick bake sale only raises £35 for charity? Fear not, we've found some great resources with new ideas for you to try!
