Fundraise for Us

With your support, we can continue our life-changing reading and writing programmes.

There are so many ways that you can fundraise for Scottish Book Trust – fundraise at work, at school, with your local club or society, or in your community.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Have a book sale or a book swap – help spread a love of reading and raise money at the same time.
  • Organise a quiz night – get your friends/work colleagues together and have a quiz night. Charge an entry fee per team. You can also consider having a raffle on the night.
  • Hold a bake sale – ask your friends and colleagues to bake for books! You could even introduce an element of competition and have a bake off with a judge.
  • Have a dress up or down day – dress up as your favourite book character or have a dress casual day in return for a donation.
  • Take part in a challenge event – join a walk, run or cycle challenge and ask friends to sponsor you. Don’t forget to set up your own justgiving page so people can easily support you.
  • Host a dinner party – cook for your friends in return for a donation.
  • Organise a bag pack in your local supermarket – the manager or community champion at your local supermarket will be able to help you secure a date.
  • Nominate us as your charity of the year at work or at your local club/society – if you need help with information for the nomination, please contact us.
  • Have an Olympic Games sweepstake – pay a donation to pick a country. The person who has the country with the most medals wins a prize.
