Everydayhero for schools, sporting associations, and community groups

Since we were founded in 2007, Everydayhero has been helping schools, sporting associations, and community groups succeed with online fundraising.

Online fundraising is the easiest way for them to raise money for sponsored events or campaigns such as read-a-thons, swim-a-thons or walk-a-thons. There’s no more paper sponsorship forms. Your community creates online fundraising pages which they share via email and social media to friends and family asking for support and sponsorship. Everydayhero collects the donations and pays them directly into your bank account.

It’s easy and hassle free! There’s no need for students, parents or your organisation to handle cash, all the money is collected online and receipts are automatically issued to donors on your behalf.

Joining is easy. Check out our frequently asked questions to learn more about partnering with us.

“I found online fundraising incredibly [with everydayhero] easy. I sent my fundraising page by email to friends and family at the beginning of our school fundraising campaign, but never imagined I would get such a response. I raised $12,400.” David Lloyd, parent of a Clarke Road School student
