Open a Branch

Start an SPF Branch at your high school or university and take the chance join a network of motivated students around the world. 

Leave your philanthropic mark on the world. 

STEP 1

Fill out the application: 

Are you passionate about charity work? Are you a university student looking to start something meaningful or an IB

student seeking to fulfill CAS requirements? If yes, apply now to start your own SPF branch.

STEP 2

Create SPF social media accounts for your branch.

Instagram and Facebook accounts are a great way to inform people at your school or university that you are starting a branch. Using social media you can recruit members, advertise events and share important information! 

STEP 3

Recruit motivated members and build a sustainable branch. 

Once people at your institution are aware of SPF and our mission, you can start recruiting members. SPF branches have between 5-20 members,and once you have selected motivated individuals to join you, you can divide up the roles (i.e., decide who is Head of Finance/ Marketing/ HR and more.)

STEP 4

Be creative and plan fundraising events with your friends!

After assembling a group of motivated students you can start planning fundraisers. Branches have hosted charity parties, bake sales, second-hand clothing sales and have partnered with local restaurants/bars and gyms to host fundraisers for other students. All funds go directly to our project! You can also organize speaker or advocacy events to emphasize the issues SPF focuses on. 

The SPF Global Board and other branches are there to support you in building your branch. We are excited for you to join our community!
