We often get asked how people manage to raise the funds for a Dentaid volunteering trip. There’s no doubt that fundraising can be a real challenge but it can also be lots of fun and a great way to let people know about your amazing work.
We hope these blogs by Selina Sufraz, who joined our Cambodia team in October 2018, and Sally Reading, who leads our Kenya teams, will prove helpful and give you some ideas!
Dental poster competitions for children at local primary schools with a small entry fee and prizes donated by dental companies
Cake bakes and coffee mornings. I used sponsor forms to collect sponsorship through friends, family and patients of the dental practice I was working at. The advice I would give is get the money up front when they complete the sponsor form, that way you aren’t running around chasing up payments after the event. Setting up at BT MyDonate page also works well for this.
