Fundraising

Rescue an area of rainforest the size of your school with our fundraising initiative. Working in collaboration with The World Land Trust conservation charity our goal is to help fund the expansion of a nature reserve in an area where a unique habitat and endangered wildlife are under severe threat. It's a fantastic cause and the money you raise will go directly towards purchasing an area of rainforest the size of your school.

Schools Saving Rainforest


Rescue an area of rainforest the size of your school

Working with the World Land Trust conservation charity we are getting schools on board for our fundraising project, with all proceeds going towards the expansion of a nature reserve protecting a unique habitat under threat. If we don't protect this land the home for several endangered species will be permanently destroyed primarily due to the threats of agriculture and logging. It's a great cause and children involved can learn about the nature they are protecting and feel proud to make a real difference to our environmental impact.

Saving species

The proceeds of your fundraising will go towards expanding Laguna Grande Reserve in Guatemala which contains some of the last remnants of a habitat under severe threat from logging and agriculture. Once completed the reserve will cover 4,000 Hectares of rainforest, providing vital protection for endangered species.

“The money that is given to the World Land Trust, in my estimation, has more effect on the wild world than almost anything I can think of.”

- Sir David Attenborough

Fundraising Ideas

Walk to School Week

Depending on where your school is and how your students get to school every morning, this could be a great idea! Organise a week in which the students would come to school on foot, not by car. Ask the students to donate all the money that was saved by not using cars to go to school.

Book Sale

Ask students and staff to bring gently used, no longer wanted books to school. Organise a big book sale day, promoting it a couple of weeks in advance.

The Big Clean Up

Do something that’s both good for the environment and raises money! Organise a cleanup project where donations are tied to specific goals such as the weight of rubbish collected or the area cleared. Litter-pickers and gloves should be used and hygiene carefully monitored due to COVID-19.

Recycling Drive

Get your students to bring to school old cartridges, mobile phones or clothes. Set up a partnership with a company that is going to buy these from you and then enjoy your newly raised money.

Principal Challenge

Get your principal on board to complete a challenge (e.g. dye their hair a fun colour) if a fundraising goal is met. Students can either vote for their favourite idea by donating or simply donate to reach the fundraising goal as soon as possible.

Mufti Day

Ask for a specific, small donation amount for students and teachers to participate in a non school uniform day where they can wear casual clothes to school.
