NGO in Guatemala breaking the Cycle of Poverty through Education

So you want to get involved? That's great news!

There are countless ways in which you can raise money for EFTC!

Download our 
Fundraising Guide and our Media Pack to find our logo, useful images, leaflets and posters.

Hold a mini-event
Invite some friends over for afternoon tea, have a wine tasting evening or themed dinner, put on a carboot sale or have a clear out by using Ebay... you could even put on a tennis tournament or arrange a five-a-side, the possibilities are endless! In the past supporters have also held hugely successful band and quiz nights to help raise money for the children at the School of Hope. Get in touch with us for handy hints and resources to help spread the word about EFTC.

Donate a Day
Make a donation to EFTC as a gift to a loved one on their birthday or another special occasion. We'll send you a special card to pass on to them which explains how your money has been spent on children who are in the greatest need of help. Some of our generous supporters have even requested that their wedding guests make a donation to EFTC instead of buying them wedding presents.

Take one of our legendary Challenges!
From assault courses and swimming challenges to volcanoes and jungle treks, EFTC holds regular challenge events across the UK and beyond. EFTC challenges provide life-changing experiences and we rely on teams of brave individuals to raise much needed funds in support of the children at the school. If you would like to hear more about upcoming challenge events, check out our Blog or email Lizzie.

Challenge yourself
Sign up for a fun run, swim challenge, bike-a-thon or other crazy challenge in support of EFTC. We can provide you with information packs, fundraising resources and advice on setting up an online fundraising page. You could also think of something you enjoy and can try to give up, such as smoking, alcohol, chocolate or even Facebook! Make it hard– then you can ask for more!

Spread the word about sponsorship
Our sponsors are our mainstay and allow us to continue providing education to over 650 children and young adults in Guatemala.  If you think you might know someone who would be interested in joining our community of dedicated sponsors, please put them in touch with us. We can also send your sponsorship forms to share with friends and family members and additional information about EFTC to help you on your quest (click here for more information on sponsoring a child).

Ask your school to help
EFTC would like to get as many schools involved in our project as possible. A school can very easily hold a non-uniform day, a bake sale, quiz night or simply start a mobile phone collection.  If you have connections with a local school or if you have children at Primary or High School, please ask your school to raise money for us this year!  The EFTC team would also be delighted to visit any school in the UK to give a talk about the children and our school in Guatemala.
