What is Day for Change?
Day for Change is a fundraising challenge for schools. The ask is simple: change something about your school day and collect as much change and cash as possible – helping to keep children safe from hunger.
With support from pupils, parents, staff and the community, plus handy fundraising tips from Unicef, you’ll be sure to smash your fundraising target.
Taking part in Day for Change is also an opportunity to teach pupils about the transformative power of nutrition and empower them to raise vital funds to help make sure malnourished children can grow up healthy and strong.
The money that you raise will go even further
This year the money that your school raises will be matched pound for pound by the Power of Nutrition, a charitable foundation – meaning the impact of your fundraising will be even greater.
How can my school get involved?
- Start by registering your school online
- 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. Why not join other schools across the UK to share images and stories for your fundraising activities at #dayforchange?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, stating when you transferred your donations.
