Fundraising is a very broad and interesting area that allows you to be as
creative and inventive as you desire.
Whether it is organising a sponsored walk
or hosting a rock party, it is entirely up to you.
You can either decide to
fundraise alone, or with friends, family or colleagues.We are happy to support
individuals or groups who are interested in raising money for Hope Foundation
through sponsored activities or fundraising events.
Just one example of a
fundraising event is our our RUN & GIVE fundraising initiative. A number of
runners take part in various marathons worldwide to support our Malaria-free
Cameroon project. Each runner sets a fundraising goal before his race and then
calls on friends, family, colleagues and companies to support his action to
fight against malaria. One sponsored kilometer provides a mosquito net to a
family in Cameroon.
There are a number of other
fundraising ideas which people use everyday to raise money for a good cause.

activity. This could be bowling, basketball, football where an entry fee
is collected or by running a sponsored race with each kilometer being

party. Instead of accepting gifts or money for your birthday or marriage
ceremony, you may wish to ask your guests to donate to Hope Foundation.
- Take an average working day and sell coffee,
flowers, baked goods to friends, family, colleagues to be able to raise
some money and support us.

off your beard or hair, stop smoking, climb a high mountain, lose weight!
