Fundraising is a great way to support MyBnk and help raise public awareness of financial education and enterprise and our work to tackle poverty.
There are plenty of fundraising activities you can get involved in – whether you love to cycle or to bake!
MyBnk can support you in your sponsored event by providing you with leaflets, flyers and information to give to your supporters, and marketing your event using our social media channels.
Fundraising ideas and inspiration
Pub Quiz – Everyone loves a pub quiz, but why not add a twist and include some MyBnk trivia….. “What is the minimum wage for UK adults aged 21yrs?” (£6.31)….. “What is the world’s most expensive football worth, in dollars?” ($2.5 million)
Give It Up – Challenge yourself to give up chocolate or your morning coffee for a month. Take the ‘Demotivator’ test to see how much your new year’s resolution could save you and then pledge the saving to MyBnk.
