9 Fun Fundraising Ideas to Help You Raise Funds For Charity

Did you know there are loads of great fundraising ideas you can do to support a charity?

We’ve done the heavy lifting for you and compiled a list of some ways to help us at ENABLE Scotland.

Each year ENABLE Scotland directly supports more than 1000 people across Scotland’s local authorities to:

  • be connected
  • get specialist information, advice and advocacy, and
  • access community-based support across a network of local groups
  • lead campaigns for change for people with learning disabilities.

Read on to learn 9 fundraising ideas you use to help us raise money to fund our vital work in 2022.


1) Take Part in an ENABLE Kiltwalk

Did you know that the Kiltwalk is back for 2022?

Get involved with #TeamENABLE and raise funds. In 2022, there will be 5 Kiltwalk events.

4 in-person events across the following major Scottish cities:

  • Glasgow – 24 April
  • Aberdeen – 29 May
  • Dundee – 21 August
  • Edinburgh – 18 September

And finally, a Virtual Kiltwalk will take place on the weekend of the 7th – 9th October where you can set your own challenge.

2) Play a Charity Lottery

The Lottery is a great new way to support our charitable activity with the chance to win cash prizes each week.

Tickets cost just £1 per week. There’s a guaranteed weekly winner and a jackpot prize of £25,000!

50p from every ticket goes directly to ENABLE Scotland, 30p goes on prizes and the other 20p pays for the lottery to be run by our partner, Gatherwell.

To sign up, visit the ENABLE Scotland lottery site.

3) Donate Your Birthday

When you donate your birthday to ENABLE Scotland, you’re changing the lives of people with learning disabilities and their families.

For 67 years, we’ve been helping people to live the lives they choose and campaigning for change.

Join us this year by donating your Birthday.

4) Leave a Legacy – Gift a Will

Leaving a gift of your Will is one of the most significant ways you can support the human rights of people with learning disabilities.

Legacies are important to the continuation of our work and will help change lives long after you are gone.

Be part of our legacy and gift a will today.

5) Coffee Morning

You can host your own Coffee Morning and donations raised on the day for ENABLE Scotland.

This can be held at any time throughout the year and with restrictions easing there may not be a better time to get together and enjoy a coffee together.

Share a coffee over a screen or a takeaway cake and cuppa, enjoy a coffee with your friends and family while helping others.

6) Donate monthly

Signing up for a monthly donation through direct debit means you can give small amounts every month that make a huge difference to our work.
