Raise your own

Zip Zap holds special events throughout the year to raise funds to cover our programmatic and operational costs. 

All our programmes are offered free of charge, so we consistently fundraise to keep programmes free and the show on the road.

We invite companies, individuals or organisations to be a part of the show by hosting their own events in honour of Zip Zap, becoming an invaluable contributor to our running costs.  

Before associating the Zip Zap brand to your fundraising event, consent will need to be requested. All community fundraising organisers need to meet certain criteria and must complete an event application form. This form also details brand and event protocols. Upon approval, Zip Zap will issue the event organiser with a Letter of Authorisation on a Zip Zap letterhead. 

Please contact Debbie Sykes for more information.

Here are some inspirational ideas for your next ‘feel good’ fundraiser!

Join our Cycle Warriors Team as a ‘Fund- Racer’ in the next Cape Town Cycle Tour.

Thousands of avid cyclists descend on the Mother City annually for the largest timed cycle race in the world. Some cyclists choose to unite for a common cause – to fundraise for their favourite non-profit organisation, like Zip Zap Social Circus.

Each year we mobilise our Cycle Warriors around the world and an enthusiastic group of cyclists jump on their bicycles and to generate some much-needed funds.

Want to hop on board as a Cycle Warrior in 2022?

As a charity we are allocated our entries a little earlier than the public. So, we offer early entries for a limited group of just 30 very important Zip Zap Cycle Warriors.  

Your entry package will be more expensive than the general entries because we use the opportunity to fundraise for our cause, and in return we love the opportunity to spoil our team and to take the hassle out of registering.

Run our way and join the Circus.

Become a Zip Zap Fund-Runner in your next marathon or race.

In October 2020 we had 33 runners join to #RunforSomething GREAT in the first virtual Cape Town Marathon. They were cheered on by our colourful, vibrant Zip Zappers dressed in glittering circus magic, at 14 Motivation Stations along the Atlantic Seaboard. An impressive R96 000 was raised to keep our Zappers programme in action!  

This could be you too, raising money for Zip Zap with every kilometre you run. Imagine, getting fit and supporting a great cause while you’re at it. 

Watch this space for news on the 2022 event.  

Send us an email if you want to join our amazing team of fund-runners.
