Fundraise your way

We recommend each student create their own Socktober Star page and take control of their fundraising, seeking sponsorship from friends and family as they kick goals throughout Socktober. It’s safe, secure and straightforward, but we know that’s not for everyone. Here are some other ways you can fundraise for mission projects through Socktober:

  • Collect donations at a Socktober Event Day. Contact your local Catholic Mission representative to find out how to bank these donations.
  • Use an offline donation form to tally up cash pledges from supporters.
  • Fundraise throughout the year. Choose some class goals and add to the pot each time you kick them.
