Fundraise for Us

THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS AND THE CHARLES DARWIN FOUNDATION NEED YOU!

The natural world is under threat like never before and we must work together now more than ever! You can help inspire others to protect and preserve animals and the unique environment of one of the world’s planetary treasures.

Our supporters do amazing things to raise funds for the Charles Darwin Foundation. From donating their birthday, holding garage sales or designing and selling socks! There’s no limit to how you can get involved.

WAYS TO HELP GALAPAGOS

There are plenty of fun ways to get involved and help raise funds for the Charles Darwin Foundation. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Propose a Sports Challenge:

Organize a sporting event such as a local 5k run and ask your friends and family to sponsor you. You could also consider participating in multiple events throughout a set time period to gain more sponsors and raise more funds.

  • Runs / walks
  • Swims / cycling
  • Marathons / triathlons

Organize an Event:

Organizing an event is a great way to fundraise as it raises money and also brings people together so that you can spread awareness regarding the importance of the work you are doing!

  • Birthday party – ask people to donate instead of giving you a gift
  • Movie night
  • Karaoke night
  • Car wash
  • Garage sale
  • Disco
  • Bake sale / lemonade stand
  • Face painting
  • BBQ
  • Costume day / non-uniform day
