For the majority who take on one of our events, the challenge is more than just physical and mental - it's also about helping others and fundraising for a charity that's close to their heart. The fundraising side can appear daunting, however the end result is just as rewarding as the challenge itself!

Fundraising targets seem high at the outset, but by getting off to an early start, breaking down the total into smaller targets, and letting people really know about your challenge and the cause you're supporting -  anyone can not just reach, but exceed, their goal!

By choosing to take on an Action Challenge event you'll be supported 100% of the way - and that includes with your fundraising. Once you have signed up to the challenge your chosen charity will be in touch within a week or so with a welcome pack, fundraising advice as well as regular updates, support and a point of contact.

For companies, schools and private groups - we can make all the arrangements for a bespoke event and agree the fundraising details with a charity that you may wish to support. It transforms an event into a fantastic engaging and motivational challenge!

fundraising options

We have 3 ways for you to sign up to most of our Challenges and support your chosen charity. An 'Open Challenge' is one of our events where you can fundraise for ANY charity.

Self - Funded

Sign up to a challenge by paying an initial deposit, and the balance before the event start date - just like paying for a holiday! Meanwhile - fundraise whatever you can for your charity - no targets - it's all down to your ambitions. All fundraising goes directly to the charity.

Sponsorship - Funded

You pay an initial deposit to secure your place on a challenge, then commit to fundraise a minimum target for a charity of your choice. A sum (between 50-80% depending on the event) of that minimum fundraising target is due to your charity before the start of the event, and from that sum your charity will pay Action Challenge the remaining cost of your place on the challenge. The balance of the fundraising is due no later than 4 weeks after the event. 

Mixed - Funded

Available on our international challenges - this option is a mixture of the two above options; you pay an initial deposit to secure your place, then a further proportion of the event cost before departure, whilst also fundraising a minimum set target for the charity of your choice.
