Why not get your school involved and raise money for Exeter Deaf Academy. Whether you hold your own fundraising event, take part in a sponsored challenge, or select us as your Charity of the Year partner, we've got lots of ideas and resources to help you.

If you are interested in covering Exeter Deaf Academy for a school project or would like to raise money and are seeking ideas, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Here are just a few School fundraising ideas:

Sponsored Silence: Could your pupils keep schtum for an hour or even a whole day? If you’ve got a class of chatterboxes then this is a great way to raise vital funds

Hold a Finger Spellathon: Put your BSL fingerspelling to the test and organise a team challenge. Download your easy to follow fingerspelling guide here 

Give it up: Get sponsored to give something up, or get the whole school to give up sweets for a day and donate the money they would have spent to Exeter Deaf Academy

Treasure hunt: Collect a set list of items and get sponsored for each item collected.

Helping Hands: Carry out simple chores and get sponsored for each completed task.

Smartie Change Challenge: An empty Smartie tube will hold £12 in 20p pieces or £27 in pound coins. So once you’ve munched through the contents ask friends and family to help you refill it and donate the contents to the Academy

Non-Uniform Day: Make a donation to come into school without uniforms.

Virtual Challenge: Conquer some great feats without leaving school! If you have a climbing wall you could climb Everest or if you have a sports field you could run a marathon, collectively!

Schools got talent: You don’t need Simon Cowell to host a fabulous talent show! This is one event that teachers and pupils can all get involved in. Sell tickets and showcase your schools’ talents!

Sell, sell, sell: Hold a school art auction, jumble sale or sell home-made jewellery and cakes.

Quiz: Do you have a knowledge of music, TV or films that amazes your friends? Why not set up a quiz and charge teams to enter

School Talks
