Best Fundraising Ideas

Posted on: August 6th, 2012 by Ian Stormnet

Organising a foreign coin collection is one of the best fundraising ideas…

One of the best fundraising ideas is to organise a foreign coin collection – here you can collect people’s unwanted foreign coins and notes and then get us to exchange these for cash for your school, PTA, charity or club.  You’ll be amazed at how many of your followers have foreign coins just sitting around at home. These coins can easily be transformed into Sterling you can use and it’s Cash4Coins that can arrange this for you. We offer expert help and advice for any charity, school, hospital or museum looking to quite literally cash in on the abundance of foreign coins out there.

As banks and bureau de change operation will not exchange foreign coins back into sterling it means that most people have a pot of foreign change lying around their home or office. This currency is basically worthless, especially when you think that most people never bother (or forget) to take it away with them. This is why organising a foreign coin collection is one of the best fundraising ideas.

Especially in tougher financial times, it’s harder to get people to donate. However, the difference with a foreign coin collection is that people usually don’t mind donating what is just leftover shrapnel. This means that you can take advantage of the foreign coins for your fundraising. Many organisations just like you benefit from collection foreign coins everyday – don’t miss out.

The best fundraising ideas are those that you can use time and time again. The great thing about arranging foreign coin collections is that you can run this type of event throughout the year.  In fact, the best time is after the school holidays when everyone has returned from their foreign holidays. Strike whilst the iron is hot and you could have a wide range of foreign currencies flooding into your collection tin.  And the best bit is that we can exchange them all!  Your bank will not do that for you as it is simply not cost effective for them to do so.  At Cash4Coins it’s different and we welcome these coins through our doors.

If you’d like to organise a coin collection for your school, PTA, hospital, charity or club (or for any cause) then we can definitely help you. Here at cash4coins we’ll count and sort your foreign currency and provide you with a valuation offer to buy your coins. If you accept then we pay you directly – and in the event that you don’t accept our offer then we will return your coins free of charge.

Above certain weights we’ll even collect your foreign coins for FREE – please go to ‘How to send us coins‘ for full details.  It really has never been easier to get some of the best fundraising ideas around and to get easy money into your charity account.

This is why organising a foreign coin collection is one of the best fundraising ideas – it’s fast, simple and effective. Contact us today for some free help and advice on how to organise a fundraising coin collection.

Charity Fundraising Ideas

Effective charity fundraising ideas…

At Cash4coins we have assisted many large and small organisations with charity fundraising ideas. We are always on hand to advise you and talk through any ideas you may have to ensure you have a successful collection. We would love to hear from you and have a specialist charity team on hand for help and advice.

Our charity specialists can tell you everything you need to know about charity fundraising ideas involving foreign coins and notes. For example, we can tell you how to get the best from your charity events by asking for donations of foreign coins.  This is money that many people across the country have left over from foreign holidays and business trips and which is simply sitting around untouched and unused.  Think about the difference this money could make to your charity especially if you can find hundreds of people to contribute to your cause.

At Cash4Coins we give you a service that is hard to find elsewhere. Simply collect together your foreign coins and notes and send them to us. We don’t even need you to sort or count them as our dedicated team will take care of that for you.  We know you have far better things to do than sitting down on the floor with a mountain of coins!

We provide a very fast, reliable and secure service to exchange all your old and unwanted foreign currency. We will even collect it for free if it weighs more than 5kg. Your coins are then counted and recounted by our team of specialists, before we make you an offer, to ensure you receive the maximum value for your collection. If for some reason you don’t accept the offer made we will return it without cost to you. So there really is nothing to lose. This is our 100% satisfaction guarantee and just one of the reasons that we are the trusted partner to exchange foreign coins for so many charities.

When people are searching for charity fundraising ideas they often hit a brick wall, in this age of austerity it is often hard to ask people to reach in their pockets and part with hard earned cash. A foreign currency collection is a great idea as it is only asking people to donate currency that is no good to them, coins that are probably just cluttering their drawers. For this reason most charities find people to be very generous when they donate.

If you’re searching for charity fundraising ideas and would like more advice, call us today to find out how you could start a collection for your cause – alternatively you can e-mail us at or call us on 0161 635 0000.  Our team will always be very pleased to help you and to give advice and unique charity fundraising ideas that will get the foreign coins and notes pouring in.  Remember, this is a great way to turn your foreign coins into Sterling that you can use right away for anything you like!

Fundraising Ideas for Schools

Fast and easy fundraising ideas for schools…

Most PTA’s that approach us are always looking for fast and easy fundraising ideas for schools. Especially in this time of austerity when everyone is feeling the pinch it can be difficult to get parents and friends of the school to donate money.  People are less and less able or willing to dip into their wages to give to charity and this can mean schools everywhere are losing out.

However, here at Cash 4 Coins we have the perfect answer – a foreign coin collection for your school. This is probably one of the best fundraising ideas for schools because foreign coins have almost zero value for most parents as they can’t be exchanged by banks. Therefore parents don’t mind donating their leftover foreign coins for school collections. The great news is that we CAN exchange foreign coins for cash so this is why a foreign coin collection is one of the most popular ways to raise funds for schools.

Most of us have loose currency lying around in change pots and drawers, destined to never be used, which is why a foreign coin collection is one of the best fundraising ideas for schools. If you make an appeal to all the children in the school to collect from all their family and friends at home, it should accumulate a substantial amount of foreign coins.  This is great for the school and for the children as they will get to learn more about the different currencies of the world and also a little about exchanging money – it could even spur some on to become stars of the stocks and shares world of the future!

What’s more all the schools that have taken part so far have commented on how much fun the children have had doing it. We have also found that all parents and family friends are keen to donate as you’re not asking them to dip into the monthly income to contribute, just raid their change jars and drawers!

If you’d like to see what our customers are saying about our fantastic service then take a look at our customer comments page. We are proud of the good words our customers have to say about us. It just shows what a great service we have to offer and we would be delighted to extend the same great service to you.  We mean it when we say we can exchange any currency so don’t worry if you have a few odd coins in your collection. We look forward to our coin collections coming in as we never stop learning about the many different currencies of the world.

If you are a teacher or PTA member looking for one of the best fundraising ideas for schools then contact us for some information on how to start a collection. We’d love to help you make the most of the money you have spent so much time and effort raising. You’ll be surprised just how much Sterling foreign coins can net for you!
