If you’re looking to fundraise for Operation Smile there are lots of different ways to go about it. It can be something as small as putting a collection tin out on your desk at work or in a common area at your school, or you can go as big as you like organising a gala, charity football matches, non-uniform days, or fetes and charity parties!

We have a really friendly Fundraising Team here at Operation Smile who are on hand to answer any of your questions and who will be very happy to support you from Day One! You can drop them an email at or give them a call on 020 3475 5126.

There’s also the option of taking part in one of our challenge events whether it be running, cycling or taking part in a group obstacle race! All the information you need can be found on our Community Hub.

45 Minute Challenge

We all have busy and active lives, so we are asking for just 45 minutes of your time to do something life changing for children born with a cleft in the developing world. Join our #45minutechallenge starting on World Health Day to help change children’s lives! Take on a sponsored #45minutechallenge for Operation Smile from 7-14th April to help provide the free and safe 45 minute surgery these disadvantaged children need.  


Hold a Collection Tin

Holding one of our new collection tins on your premises will not only help change the lives of thousands of children every year, you will be raising brand awareness for such a vital cause!

On average, a collection tin holds about £50. This means that if you fill up your tin once every four months, at the end of the year you will have changed a child’s life!

You can request your collection tin today here


Get others involved!

We know that it's hard to find time to fundraise, but maybe you know someone else who can? Pubs, schools, employers, religious institutes, community groups, scouts/guides, local businesses, and many more are always looking to support a good cause!

Do you know anyone involved in one of these? Could your office do a dress down day, Bake a Smile, or  hold a collection tin? If so, get in touch with them and tell them why Operation Smile is so important.

All you need to do is introduce them to Operation Smile’s Fundraising Team - and we’ll do the rest – it’s that simple!
