Fundraising ideas

If you are planning an event, please make sure that you are doing so safely and within the current level restrictions in your area.

Minimise contact with others, wear personal protective equipment where possible and check the government website for updates on levels, and event restrictions. Head to www.covid19.govt.nz for more information.

Sports Tournament

For the sports people out there, it's worth considering your local clubhouse or indoor sports facility to stage your own mini-tournament. You can charge teams to enter and reward the winners with prizes at the end of a rewarding day or weekend of sports. If you play touch, cricket, league, netball - or anything really - this is a potential option for you. The traditional golf day is of course another great way to raise funds, if you have a friendly local course.

Poker Tournament

Poker nights are all the rage these days and a great way to raise some funds. Remember, cash prizes are not encouraged, but prizes for the winners could still be avaliable. If you and your friends/network are keen players, this is a fun way to raise money.

Auctions & Raffles

Do you, your network or organisation have prizes or goods to contribute? A raffle or auction can be the best way to maximise value. Remember, raffle prizes must legally be kept below $5000.

Bowls Day

The ultimate social Sunday fundraiser. Organise a bowls day at your local club and your friends will all enjoy it. Most bowls clubs will ask a nominal $10 per casual bowler, so you can look to charge a little more than that, and include BBQ fundraisers, raffles, and games of chance on the day to boost your fundraising.

Movie Night

A great one for friends and family - approach your local cinema and ask them about hiring out a whole theatre. Often the smaller, local cinemas will be better value and will allow you to hold your own events with less risk. Watch the latest blockbuster with your supporters and give them a rewarding night while they support you.

Sell yourself

What is your most valuable asset? Are you handy on the tools? A great teacher? A singer or performer? Think about organising a 'people auction' where you and your team get together and sell yourselves to the highest bidder for the day.

Bake Sale

If you are a wizz in the kitchen then why not whip up some sweet treats and do the rounds at your office. This might be something you can repeat every couple of weeks - as people hear about how delicious your treats are, more people will want to get their hands on them.

The hot seat

Do you have a supportive CEO in your organisation? If so, you could set them up to a day's work within the organisation - for sale to the highest bidder of course. Your co-workers will have the opportunity to submit a bid to have the CEO do their job for a day!

Head shave

Are you precious about your hair or have long locks that you are emotionally tied to? Shaving your head can show true commitment to your cause, and your network will be willing to support. Put this one out to your network, alongside staging it as a live event and ask people for a donation to attend. Get your whole team involved and make a day of it! Or for the really brave... what about a wax-a-thon to take it to the next level?

Car wash

Get your friends or colleagues together. Write up some signage. Grab a bucket, some soap, and sponges, and make a fun car wash for a cause.

Please note; there is currently a water shortage in Auckland. A car wash is not recommended when water restrictions are in place. Check with your local council to see what restrictions you have in your area.

Merchandise

We have a range of merchandise available for sale. We will provide you merchandise stock at wholesale prices, and when you sell the products at retail value, you can attribute the balance to your fundraising. This can be a great activity to compliment your event efforts.

Garage sale

We all have valuable items lying around the house or in storage. Why not have a garage sale where the profits go to your fundraising? You can even engage your neighbours and friends to donate goods to the sale.

Quiz night

Most local pubs have quiz facilities, and will be willing to allow you to stage your event at their premises. That means you do not have to organise food and drink, and the bar wins by you bringing in a crowd.
