Our Helpful fundraising ideas come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Hopefully you can adapt some of them to have fun and raise funds for your group. We often include similar information to reflect possible variations. You will definitely find some repeats but ... just maybe ... that's because they have proven to be successful! Some of the ideas will work for your group, some obviously will not. But make sure you review the list because there are some real gems from the small raffle nights to full blown concert nights to sporting events. Here are a few.......

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book-gifting charity for young children aged 0-5. Dolly was inspired to set up her Imagination Library as a tribute to her father, a smart and hard-working man who was unable to read or write. Dolly wants to guarantee access to books, inspire a lifelong love of reading and help children reach their full potential.
All children enrolled in the Imagination Library receive a book in the post every month until their 5th birthday. Every book is personally addressed to each individual child. All titles in the Imagination Library are published by Penguin Random House and carefully selected by a panel of experts in early childhood literacy and reading. Books are chosen to support developmental milestones and encourage active involvement. The programme is completely free for children and their families
Reading and imparting a love of books is one of the most important things we can do for our children. Book sharing with a child encourages bonding and development of language, communication and cognitive skills. Books are the fuel for a child’s imagination!
The Dollywood Foundation UK (DWF) works with sponsors to provide the books. Each Imagination Library sponsor funds the books and postage, currently £25 per child, per year. Sponsors do not pay for DWF staff, our database or any other DWF costs; Dolly pays for these in full. The sponsors include those from local and central government, companies big and small, NHS trusts, Rotary Clubs, charities, housing associations, primary schools as well as private individuals – people like you! Sponsors set up Imagination Libraries in entire towns, villages, nurseries... there are even companies offering Imagination Library as a staff benefit. Imagination Libraries range in size from 10,000 children to 10. Each individual Imagination Library is as big or small as the sponsor wants to make it.
