Scouts partners with GoFundMe on fundraising badge (Civil Society)

Scouts can now earn a fundraising badge by working with the online fundraising platform GoFundMe to launch a campaign and raise money for a chosen cause. GoFundMe approached the Scout Association about the partnership that will see young people involved with the Scouts get tips and resources about online fundraising.  Resources will be aimed at Scouts, who are between ten and a half and 14 years old and Explorers, between 14 and 18 years old. The platform will give tips and resources to Scout groups and leaders to help the young people select a charity or cause and fundraise and aims to inspire the next generation to be active citizens and connect with charities.
