Change starts now!
The Day for Change fundraising challenge for schools has arrived and we need your students to get involved. Change something about your school day and collect as much change and cash as possible – helping to keep children safe from hunger.
Every pound that you raise will be matched by The Power of Nutrition, a charitable foundation, until the end of term, so your fundraising will go even further for children.
Join other schools across the UK to share images and stories of your fundraising activities at #dayforchange
Why take part at your school?
Taking part in Day for Change is a great opportunity to learn about how nutritious food can change children’s lives as well as empowering students to raise vital funds, helping to make sure malnourished children can grow up healthy and strong. Planning fundraising events is a brilliant way to add some fun to the academic calendar and promotes teamwork and cooperation.
How can my school get involved?
- Start by registering your school online now
- Next, organise a fundraising activity of your choice. We’ve got heaps of fundraising ideas to get you started and help you boost your fundraising target
- Look out for an all-new fundraising kit on its way to you – packed with the ideas, resources and treats you’ll need to make your Day for Change extra special
- Inspire your pupils with our fantastic, easy-to-deliver teaching resources
The big Day for Change will be on Wednesday 24 May, but you can fundraise whenever suits your school’s calendar – all funds will be matched until the end of the summer term in July.
Will my school receive resources and fundraising materials?
Every school that registers for Day for Change will be sent their welcome pack in the spring term 2017, which includes a how-to guide and lots of other useful and fun fundraising materials and tools.
You’ll also receive regular updates on how pupils, staff and parents are helping provide children around the world with the food they need to live healthy, happy lives.
Plus, with our ready-to-use teaching resources, including assembly and lesson plans, worksheets, videos and activities, you’ll have everything you need to inspire your pupils to help other children around the world.

How can my school send in the money we’ve raised?
Once you’ve registered your school, you’ll receive a letter with your fundraising pack. This letter will include a unique paying-in slip as well as instructions on how to send in your donations.
If you have not received a welcome letter with a paying-in slip, please complete our sending in your money form, which you can download to the right, and email it to email@example.com, stating when you transferred your donations, including a note with the name and post code of your school.
