Fundraising tips

Here are some tips to help with your fundraising efforts:
  • Make the first donation yourself
  • Create your online fundraising page and share it with family, friends, work colleagues and have some fun. Be creative - spread the word by email, Facebook, any other social media apps, anywhere
  • Create a personal flyer or poster and post it on the noticeboard at work, drop it into your neighbourhood’s letter boxes, etc. A generic poster is also available on our website.
  • Organise a fundraising event, for example:
    • Sausage sizzles (Bunnings, Woolworths and Officeworks all have established sausage sizzle set up. Contact them to book a date.)
    • Raffles
    • Trivia night
    • Movie night
    • High Tea
    • Dinner (many restaurants are happy to donate a portion of the meal cost to your fundraising. Talk to your local restaurant and see what they are happy to offer).
    • Auction
    • Comedy night
    • Book sale
    • Golf day
    • Garage sale / community garage sale
    • Fashion parade
    • Karaoke night
  • Ask your employer if they will match your funds or get people to sponsor you by kilometer.
  • Other ideas:
    • Donation drives (chocolates, lamingtons, etc.)
    • Lolly jar guessing competition
    • Ask others for ideas and join with others for a combined event.
    • Use your imagination and have fun!
