CDEC is always appreciative of the efforts of others to help raise money to keep our work going to ensure Cumbria is a beacon of global citizenship.

If you have a passion for global citizenship and want to see it extended through Cumbria for years to come; if you have a desire to challenge yourself to do something you never thought possible whilst raising money for a local charity; if you have benefited from the work we have done in schools or your community and you wish to see other individuals benefit; or even if your company is looking for a local charity to support, please choose CDEC!

How can I raise money for CDEC?

There are so many ways to raise money for CDEC. Your school could hold a world dress-up day; in return for a donation your children could come to school dressed as people from other cultures around the world.

You could invite your friends to make a donation in return for a coffee morning in your home with cakes and treats from around the world.

At work, you and your colleagues could challenge yourselves with sponsorship to take enough steps to walk from Cumbria, UK to Cumberland, USA, and ask your employer to match what you raise!

Are there simpler ways to fundraise for CDEC?

Back to basics, you can simply make a donation to CDEC via Paypal. Or if you would like to make regular donations, please contact us for further details of how to do this.
