Mercy Corps Online Quiz Fundraiser

Quiz Night

Virtual quizzes have become a fun and popular way to keep connected and socialise with colleagues, friends and family, so why not turn your quiz into a fundraiser. We have put together our top tips on setting up a quiz fundraiser and provided 5 rounds of questions to help you get started. Feel free to add more in - who doesn’t love a music round!

Virtual Bake-Off

A bake off or bake sale is one of our favourite classic fundraising events, and there is no reason why you can’t get your bake on while at home! Choose a date that works best for you and your network and pick your virtual platform; there are plenty you can choose from - Zoom, Google Hangouts or Skype. Ask your participants for a donation or entry fee for joining in then it’s time to see who the real Mary Berry is! Presentation is key when you’re the only one able to do the tasting so we recommend you mark each other on design, visual technique and no soggy bottoms!

Cooking for Mercy Corps fundraising event

Online Cooking Corner

Are you a culinary expert? The next Gordon Ramsay or Nigella Lawson perhaps? Or maybe you just know how to make the best spag bol? Set up a video call on your chosen virtual platform and invite people along to a virtual cooking class. Provide a list of ingredients in advance and ask all participants to make a donation for joining in. Our top tip - go with something that has easily swappable ingredients and allows room for some error!

Your fundraising really does have an impact that is felt around the world. If you have any questions or are looking for guidance and support please get in touch. Call our supporter care team on +44 (0) 131 662 2377 during office hours or email fundraising-europe@mercycorps.org any time.
