Searching for ideas on how to fundraise and give back? Look no further, here are some fun ideas from some of our Giving.sg fundraisers!
We hope they may offer some inspiration to you about how to start a fundraising campaign via Giving.sg, or you may support theirs.
1. 9-Year-Old Zoe Bakes and Does Arts And Crafts
You are never too young to start your giving journey. At just 9 years old, Zoe supports Club Rainbow’s community outreach efforts through her fundraiser on Giving.sg.
Established in 1992, Club Rainbow Singapore provides support for low-income families and children with major chronic illnesses. The funds raised will go towards providing for the children’s weekly therapy services and supporting families in the community.
“I admire the work that Club Rainbow does to help the community,” Zoe shares in her campaign. To reach her goal of $3,000, she will bake cookies and make arts and crafts for people who make a donation.
With parental support, Zoe’s initiative is just one of the many ways a young person can start their fundraising journey and nurture the habit of giving from a young age.

2. Siblings Who Fundraise Together
When his mother came home with pretty tote bags, Lucas, 8, and his sister Haley, 4, were immediately intrigued by the design and learned more about the elderly at Assisi Hospice. Affectionately nicknamed ‘Ah Ma’, they learned about one of the elderly patients who could colour without hands.
Since then, the siblings prepared a painting inspired by Mid-Autumn Festival. They wish to use it to help the residents.
Assisi Hospice provides quality care for patients, providing a cosy and warm home for all, regardless of their situation. Donate here and help the elderly in our community get the love and care they deserve.
3. Friends Fundraising For Their Birthday
“If you ever see us at Maxwell, let us pour you a cup – or buy you a kopi, up to you la.”
Keming and Russell are two friends who are marking their 23rd birthday by raising funds and supporting New Hope Community Services. Over their usual chat at Maxwell Hawker Centre, Keming and Russell lamented over being at home due to the lockdown.
However, it also opened their eyes to how it was a privilege to have somewhere to call home and to the issue of homelessness in Singapore. Homelessness raises other serious concerns such as unemployment, social isolation, poor physical and mental health.
They hope to help individuals and displaced families to get back on their feet and lead a dignified life by providing them with lodging and other services. Help them make their birthday meaningful here.

5. Running For Rescue Dogs
Originally from the luxury, fashion and lifestyle industry, Marie Choo now works in the social service sector to give back to those in need of support. Well-known as ‘The Dog Alchemist’, Marie is also a dog behaviourist and trainer – all while being a lifestyle athlete.
She started the “I Run For Rescue Dogs” movement in 2014, running races to raise awareness and funds for no-kill dog shelters in Singapore. Over the past 7 years, her movement inspired donations over $120,000, supporting the fur residents of these shelters.
In conjunction with her birthday, Marie hopes that more can donate to feed the dogs at Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter. Click here to help feed our adorable furry friends until they find a forever home!
