There are many ways your school can help raise money for CAUSE. We have interesting fundraising ideas to get you started, but we want you to be creative and support children and young people who have a loved one living with a serious mental illness. CAUSE To DANCE is our exciting and fundraising initiative for pupils of all ages!

Other ways to support us include:

  • CAUSE to DANCE
  • Dress to Dance Day  Non – Uniform or Fancy Dress Days
  • Host a Bake and Make Day
  • Take up the Smartie Challenge
  • Invite us to your Christmas Fair
  • Young Philanthropy Initiative - choose CAUSE - YPI provides secondary school students with real life experience through a strong academic philanthropy course that gives them skills to assess the needs of their community and direct grants to community based charities like CAUSE making a local impact upon those needs.
  • Name the Bunnies - an activity for very young fundraisers

If you would like our support in organising your event or to register your interest please call Anne on 028 90 650 650 or email: [email protected]
