Globally, 63 million girls miss out on the opportunity to go to school. Together, we can change this. Get involved and fundraise to support all children to realise their potential. Your school can support us with events throughout the term or make us your charity of the year for maximum impact!

Why supporting girls’ education will help end poverty

How you can help

What can you do

Holding a fundraising activity for Plan International Australia at your school will help to protect girls from harm and help them to access quality education and health services.

Schools are great at coming up with creative ideas for fundraising, from quiz nights and discos, to bake sales and casual days, the list is almost endless. Tell us your idea by completing the Fundraising Proposal Form.

Need some inspiration? Here are some ways we would love your school to get involved:

  • Hold a lunchtime auction of something that almost every student would pay top dollar for – the chance to 'buy' a teacher or principal for a few hours or to do a task…
  • Run a lunchtime bake sale – yum!
  • Instead of buying lunch, why not have your school mates or friends bring in their own lunch one day and donate what is normally spent at the canteen
  • Nominate a sports game or school event to be an official fundraiser and charge entry fee or request donations
  • Hold a non-uniform day - it could be casual clothes or fancy dress!
  • Ask all the students to donate unwanted books and hold a book sale
  • Give it up! Whether it’s chocolate, make up or technology - what could you live without? Try 24 hours, a week or even a month and ask friends and family to sponsor you.

Whatever it is, make it fun!

The difference your school can make

$30: School breakfast for a year
Giving a child breakfast at school for a whole year means providing them with the energy and nutrition needed to concentrate in class and make the most of their education.
$58: Teach hand-washing
Teaching a school hand-washing habits is important for students’ health. The children also learn how to spread this message to friends and family.
$100: Build a school garden
A garden is a fun and delicious way for children to learn about nutrition. A school garden provides healthy and delicious food so children can focus at school – and extra take-home portions for vulnerable families.
