Dd is soon turning 16 and asked for charity donations instead of gifts . She would like to have a fundraiser party but we can’t come up with anything cool enough for a bunch of teenagers that will raise money.

Any suggestions? Thanks

Charity fashion show? Ask local college to help out maybe or just loads of tat clothes doesn't matter would be fun anyway

Charity auction. Auction people to do things like clean , clean someone's windows. Dog walk etc. Have a meal cooked by them

Charity silent disco that doubles as a party for dc . They. Pay entry or hire the mps or headphones etc.

Charity fake casino.

Charity fait- cake sale, stocks and sponges , stalls etc

Charity mini v festival ask local acts or college music students to perform or put something out in Facebook. Food stands. Drink stands etc

I'm sure a church or village hall or maybe anyone will land may be able to help with the venue ?

Maybe you should keep this donation rule just between family. Asking people to give money (even if it is to a good cause) instead of giving gifts is a bit uncouth. You really should never expect a gift and never specify what you would like (with the exception of a very explicitly optional wedding registry with lots of differently priced options). You daughter can fundraise even on days when it is not her birthday!

I don't see anything wrong with if she's having a part for herself to ask for no presents will be a charity donation box at party instead

Or doing a event and stating all proceeds will go to charity 'xxx'

Check with local churches, many do a coffee morning after the service and sell cakes. The proceeds are donated to a charity. They could do the baking the day before as a 'party'.
