Fundraising is fun and it helps raise awareness. Why not hold your own fundraising event to support Earthwatch, or help towards your Earthwatch expedition?
Participating in a sporting challenge or event, such as a marathon or triathlon, is a fun and effective way to raise money for Earthwatch. These events are also something your friends will be accustomed to supporting. Collect sponsorship from your friends, family and work colleagues.
We've developed some resources to make fundraising from this kind of event easier for you. Check them out.
Want to raise money for Earthwatch but don’t fancy running a marathon or feeling the burn following an endurance cycle? Prefer just to enjoy an evening with your friends enjoying good food and good wine? Well now you can do both at the same time! Click the link above to learn more.
Share your experiences
Have you been on an Earthwatch expedition? Did you have a great time that you’d like to share with others? If so we’d love for you to host a talk about your expedition!
Arrange your own evening, perhaps with music and drinks, or speak at your local school assembly, church evening or any community group meeting. Women’s Institutes and Rotary Clubs are particularly fond of hosting speakers.
You can do a charitable collection following the talk, so you are both fundraising, and spreading the Earthwatch message!
We can provide you with a PowerPoint presentation template, a letter confirming your fundraising eligibility, and will be happy to review your presentation content. If you are interested in sharing your Earthwatch experience through a talk, please get in touch .
Organise an event
Organising an event can be challenging, but is always a lot of fun! From bake sales and coffee mornings, to quiz nights and gigs, there are hundreds of event ideas out there.
