One Day Together 2019

Once a year we hold a national fundraising day – One Day Together – and ask the Educate Together community to come together, dig a little deeper and chat a little louder, to help us achieve our goal of providing inclusive, equality-based education to all families in Ireland who want it. Schools, start-up groups, alumni and families up and down the country mark the day with celebrations and fundraisers, all in aid of our charity Educate Together.

This year One Day Together took place on 25th October 2019 and it was incredibly heartening to see so many of our school communities and supporters take part. We are so grateful for your generosity and all the time, energy,  enthusiasm and creativity that went into each event.

Now, we know how busy the run-up to the mid-term break can be so if your school or workplace wanted to hold a fundraiser on behalf of Educate Together but just didn’t find the time, don’t worry, it’s not too late!

If you scroll to the bottom of the page, our handy One Day Together 2019 fundraising pack, as well as customisable posters to advertise your event and sponsorship cards, are still available to download. Our staff in the national office would also be delighted to support and publicise your event in any way they can and can be reached at fundraising@educatetogether.ie

No matter what date is chosen or how you choose to celebrate the day, know that we would be thrilled to have your support!
