Safe Online Fundraising for Groups
Stay Cybersafe Online Fundraising
We are committed to ensuring the safety and privacy of all users of our online fundraising platforms. Here are all the ways we make sure your data is safe and secure when fundraising online with Australian Fundraising.
With many schools and groups now opting for online only fundraising, cybersafety must be top of mind when selecting a fundraising provider. Australian Fundraising is committed to ensuring our online fundraising platforms align with the highest standards for cybersafe fundraising, with a particular focus on identity and privacy protection. Learn more about how we achieve this, through:
- Being Australian-owned and operated
- Complying with the ST4S Nationally Consistent Risk Framework
- Limiting your data
- Reducing Personal Identification requirements
- Minimising identifying features online, including student avatars and no last names
- Eliminating search functionality
- Choosing trusted, Australian affiliates for financial processing
Australian Owned and Operated
Australian Fundraising’s Australian-owned and operated platforms mean that your data is subject to strict privacy and security laws, protecting it from third-party access, transfer and sale.
Nationally Compliant with ST4S
Australian Fundraising has achieved a compliant Safer Technologies 4 Schools (ST4S) result. ST4S is a nationally consistent risk assessment approach. ST4S assess services used by schools against benchmarked criteria, including information security, privacy, and online security.
Limited Data Retention
Unlike other fundraising companies that may keep your data for years, Australian Fundraising deletes your data and resets our online databases at the end of each school year. This reduces the risk of having your data ending up in the wrong.
Personal Identification Requirements
Some online providers who trade in Australia ask for your personal information documents such as a passport or driver’s license. Not with us! Australian Fundraising does not ask for personal identification, making registration secure, quick and easy. All that is required to set your organization up with our online fundraising platform is an ABN and a bank statement.
No Identifying Features
Keep children safe online with no profile photos, surnames or class groups. Instead, children can create their own profile avatar, including hearing aides, glasses, hats, and over 12 different skin shades!
No Search Functionality
Keep children safe online with no profile photos, surnames or class groups. Australian Fundraising’s URLs are private (only access by direct link sharing), protecting students from being found via search engines.
Trusted, Australian Affiliates
Australian Fundraising is proud to partner with GoFundraise, an Australian, online fundraising service. When choosing a fundraising provider, ensure that their affiliates are also safe and trusted – like GoFundraise!
