Each year City of Trees spends at least £1m helping connect people to the places that matter to them. As a charity we rely on the support of the local community to continue our vital work. By fundraising for the City of Trees movement you’ll be helping to plant more trees, manage more woodland and get more people connected to nature across Greater Manchester. To see how the money you raise will make a difference, check out City of Trees in action.

There are loads of ways you can fundraise as an individual, below are just a few ideas. If you are thinking of doing this in your workplace, check out our staff fundraising section

Take on a challenge
Get sponsored to push yourself and do something amazing! There are loads of events going on across Greater Manchester, so whatever your fitness level you can find the right challenge for you.

In the office
Fundraising at work is a great way to bring your team together and have some fun while meeting your CSR commitments. We can help you come up with events and ideas that work for you.

With friends and family
You could stick to the tried and tested cake sales, collections and quiz nights or try something new - there are loads of ways you can fundraise in your community! Bonus points for fundraising ideas that get people outside and connected to nature.

At school
Organise a Go Green day to help raise awareness of the importance of trees and help us plant more. You could do a standalone event or tag some fundraising on to something you’ve already got going on, like your Christmas fair or Summer fete.
