The Biggest Fundraising Year Yet!

With all the inconsistency and tumultuousness of 2021, it might be difficult to believe that this year was one of the biggest years for Australian school and group fundraising.

But with the help of a brand new, gamified online platform and more program inclusions than ever before, local Australian communities have raised more than $15 million for their schools and groups in 2021!


More Fun

The most important thing in any fundraiser is the FUN! Australian schools and groups sure had fun this year, with 1,010 Fun Runs happening in 2021! This is more than 1 in 4 government schools in Australia and doesn’t even begin to count the 220,000 tubs of Billy G’s Cookie Dough sold this year.

From climbing obstacles, cookie costumes, colour powder and, of course, our brand-new slime, members from all across the community had a ball supporting their school.


Students across Australia had lots of fun in 2021!

“It’s terrific! A highlight for our students every year!”

– Nick Gillard, Sports Coordinator


More profit

Profit is important when it comes to fundraising! Schools and groups definitely outdid themselves this year, raising a huge $15 million for their communities!

Across our communities, schools and groups are benefiting from the hard work of their P&Cs, parents and teachers! It is their time, effort and dedication that helps schools and groups reach their fundraising goals with flying colours.

All around Australia, schools and groups are benefiting from new playgrounds, shade cloths, excursions, books and materials, sports equipment, and so much more!

In 2021, Australian Fundraising was excited to launch our Profit for Playgrounds initiative. The program saw schools and groups partner with Imagination Play, a leading playground provider for schools and groups.

Connecting organizations with reputable, affordable and well-managed construction services, schools and groups can take the stress out of their major playground renovation. To learn more about our partnership with Imagination Play and how Australian Fundraising can help you achieve the playground of your dreams, contact us at 1300 133 022!

– Tammy Donnovan, Kindergarten Teacher


Bigger difference

Fundraising is all about helping out our schools, groups and local communities. In 2021, schools and groups took generosity to the next level with their incredible support for Australian Fundraising’s charity partners.

Launching in 2021, schools and groups around Australia raised a remarkable $100,000 for bullying prevention charity Dolly’s Dream. Participants filled the air with colour and laughter as they said no to bullying and helped fundraise for greater awareness, education and support in our schools and communities.

Lissa Lathwell, a teacher from a participating Do It For Dolly Colour Explosion School Run4Fun encourages anyone to consider supporting Dolly’s Dream. “You won’t regret it all!”

“The smile on everyone’s faces is the most amazing thing we have seen. From the time we announced we were having the Colour Explosion, everyone was excited and looking forward to it.”


“Being a school that values sustainability, swapping incentive prizes for tree planting made so much sense for us!”

– Sonia Leggit, P&C Committee Member


Sustainable fundraising soared to new heights in 2021, with schools and groups planting over 30,000 trees in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor! Environmentally friendly fundraising allowed students to give back to their local communities and consider the impact their actions have on the environment. You can discover more about environmentally friendly fundraising on the blog!
