Fundraising guide

Thanks to your incredible fundraising efforts we are able to carry out our lifesaving work around the world, helping those people who need it the most. Our work really couldn't happen without you.

To help you we've put together this quick-start guide, so that raising money for Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has never been easier.

Your quick start guide

1. Decide what you'd like to do

Not decided what you'd like to do yet? Then be inspired by some of our amazing fundraisers. Maybe you can join the list?

2. Get started

We suggest following these easy three steps to kick off your campaign.

i. Get in touch with our fundraising team
We’d love to hear what you’re planning and we’ll help support you and spread the word.

ii. Set up a fundraising page
This will make it easy for your friends and family to donate online. Setting up an iDonate fundraising page is a great way to easily collect funds for your fundraising event.

Or, if you would prefer to collect donations in person use our sponsorship form.

iii. Tell the world about your campaign
Use your social networks to spread the word. You can find some great images and posters in our resources section.

Keep going and finish strong

Use our tips to help spread the word and reach your fundraising target.

i. Send a follow-up email 
We're all busy and often need reminding so it’s a good idea to get the attention of your supporters again.

ii. Keep your community updated
Regular status update reminds your friends why you are fundraising. Why not post a photo of your preparation for the big event?

ii. Thank your supporters
It may sound obvious but it's essential and as up to 20 percent of donations are made after an event it's really worth doing. You can now transfer funds directly to our Bank of Ireland account at any time referencing the following codes:
