The British Dragonfly Society relies on memberships and donations in order to carry out our important work for dragonflies. Whether it is running a coffee morning, cake sale or marathon, there are a whole range of fun ways you can do something amazing for dragonflies.

Some simple fundraising ideas:

1. Carry out a sponsered event: this could be as daring as a bungee jump or as simple as a dragonfly cake sale! It easier than ever to support the BDS through a sponsered event, set up your page on Just Giving and then send to all your friends, family and share the word via social media.

2. Shop via Give as you Live: support the British Dragonfly Society for free when you shop online at over 4,000 stores by registering with Give as you Live. You can raise free donations for us every time you shop online at thousands of stores including Amazon, John Lewis, Debenhams, Expedia, and Sainsbury's. Click here to find out more.

3. Get creative for charity: get your artisitic juices flowing and create drawings, photography, poems and more (dragonfly theme optional...). Set up a stall at local events, your school or office and send the proceeds to us!

If you are planning to fundraise for us, would like help with promoting your event or have an idea but would like some advice then get in touch with our Conservation Officer.
