Host an Event

Hosting a non-profit fundraising event for ERDO is an exciting way to make a difference in poverty-stricken communities around the world. You can choose to raise money for a specific ERDO project or area of need. The money you raise for ERDO helps us empower children, their families and communities. By hosting an event you will be giving your guests a chance to give to lifesaving development work.

Why hold an event?

You can share your passion for humanitarian work with your loved ones. Plus, you can raise money for a great cause! Really, there are no downsides to hosting an event.

Event Ideas


  1. Host a Meal or BBQ Ask your guests to buy tickets and the proceeds will go to an ERDO project
  2. Cupcake Auction Are you a baker at heart? Use your talents to raise money for an ERDO project and spread a little cupcake love. Who doesn’t love cupcakes?
  3. Tea Party A twist on a traditional tea party. Send invitations to your guests with a tea bag. Note the time and date so your guests can enjoy their tea from the comfort of their own home. Ask them to give to a family in need in exchange for their tea.
  4. Make Your Own Cookbook Gather your friends and have them share their recipes. Create a personalized recipe book and sell them. The money raised could make a difference in an area that is struggling to have food for their family.

Event Ideas


  1. Walk-a-thon, Skate-a-thon, Bike-a-thon or Swim-a-thon Let your imagination run wild with the possibilities for making a difference in the world through fun activities.
  2. Pajama Day Arrange with your school to host a pajama day. On the special day students and teachers will be able to wear their pjs for a small cost to them. The money raised could help children in one of the areas that ERDO has child sponsorship.
  3. Child’s Birthday Party Ask your guests to give to an ERDO project rather than giving gifts for a child’s birthday. Tell them about how their gifts will help people in need.

Event Ideas
