Fundraising and Events

Challenge yourself, have fun and help us make a difference.

Thousands of South Africans attend or hold their own events every year to raise funds. Find out how you can get involved with a Save the Children event.  Your efforts can help improve the lives of children in South Africa.  

Every child deserves a safe and happy childhood. But there are still millions of children in South African who grow up without the basics.

That's why we are grateful to all of our amazing supporters who fundraise for us, attend events and hold their own events to support our programmes. Whether it's riding across the country on a bicycle, hosting a morning tea or running a marathon, we have lots of great ways for you to get involved:

DIY fundraising

Got a great idea for a fundraising event of your own? Our supporters come up with many unique ideas! No matter how big or small your idea, we want to hear from you and help you organise the ultimate fundraising event!


Attend one of our incredible events across the country and help improve the lives of children in South Africa. 

Gifts in celebration 

Instead of a birthday present this year, or another set of towels for your wedding, why not ask your friends and family to make a donation to Save the Children South Africa instead.

Our work simply couldn't happen without our amazing supporters who raise the money that funds it. Joining one of our events or setting up your own fundraiser could be the best fun you have all year.
