Are you wanting to fundraise for us but stuck for ideas on how? We are sure that you will have some amazing fundraising ideas and you will have plenty of fun planning them.
To get the ball rolling, take a look at some of the ideas below to help inspire you. Be positive, energetic and motivated, and you can make it happen!
Don't forget to tell us about your plan so we can support you!
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you are nervous or apprehensive about fundraising, do not hesitate to contact us.
We do this stuff everyday. Our fundraising staff are happy to help you help us.
