Donate or fundraise in celebration

Share your love of books by starting a fundraiser or by giving in celebration and help BookTrust change more lives through reading!

Whether you are celebrating a birthday, wedding, anniversary or retirement, make your occasion truly special by getting family and friends to support a good cause to mark your big day!

Simply start a birthday fundraiser on Facebook or set up a JustGiving fundraising page to mark a special event like a birthday or wedding, and ask friends and family for donations rather than gifts. Get inspired by seeing how others are fundraising for BookTrust on our JustGiving page.

To donate a gift on behalf of a loved one, such as for their birthday, simply donate online and select to donate ‘On behalf of someone else’. You will be sent a certificate that you can send on to mark the occasion.

Alternatively, you can send an e-card to friends and family to celebrate an event and make them feel special.
