Fundraising ideas for youth groups

Children selling lemonade at a stand

Whether you're in the scouts, guides or cubs, running a fundraiser is a brilliant activity for all youth groups. Here are some of our top ideas for fundraising events for young people. Have fun and raise money for life saving research to help beat heartbreak forever.

Green fingers wear red


Weed or mow your neighbours’ gardens for a reasonable donation. Do a couple a weekend for a month.


Jump Rope For Heart


Sign up for an official Jump Rope for Heart kit. Holding a jump rope fundraiser will help you get fit as well as raise money! 


Cookie Monster


Make cookies and sell them! You know this one. Post pictures online of the best cookie, the big cookie, the most cookies made in one batch, and the cookie monster of the month.

Break the rules

This could be an event at your school, or at your club, such as brownies, cubs or scouts. Raise money by breaking the rules. Check out our how to guide to give you all the fun and playful details to get any group involved.



Everyone loves Dodgeball! Host an official BHF dodgeball event and have lots of fun while raising money for life saving research.  

Stars in their eyes

Get yourself a BHF all-star kit and host a sports day or evening. Make it as fun as you want. You could have straight sprints and high jumps, or hoopla and throw the beanbag.
