Pre-Reg vs Book Now? What’s the Difference?
Organising your fundraisers a year in advance may seem like a big commitment! It is, if you are booked into a non-flexible arrangement like some fundraising providers do. However at Australian Fundraising, we offer pre-registration instead – a flexible, low-commitment option to express your interest in a 2022 fundraiser, without the risk.
In the world of school and group fundraising, few things are set in stone! Plans may change, participant numbers may change, your group’s preferences may change. But one thing is for sure – and that is that you require the most flexible programs possible to make your fundraisers are soaring success.
Ensure you choose most flexible option for your school and group, by pre-registering with a provider that gives you all the benefits if you go ahead – but doesn’t lock you in if there is a spanner in the works!

What is a Pre-Registration?
A pre-registration with Australian Fundraising is all the best parts of an expression of interest and a booking! Think of it as a tentative booking, with all benefits of booking in advance, without the pressure of a lock-in contract. A pre-registration is:
- A quick online form, expressing your interest in a 2022 fundraiser;
- Secures your preferred event date for 2022;
- Makes you eligible for Early Bonus Bonanza Prizes if your event goes ahead in 2022;
- Very flexible, meaning you can change your preferences at any time;
- Completely in your hands!
A pre-registration allows you to secure a huge prize from our Early Bonus Bonanza if your event goes ahead in 2022. By pre-registering, you are eligible to receive 50% MORE Colour Powder or Slime per student for a Colour Explosion or Slime Spectacular School Run 4 Fun, a free carton of Cookie Dough with Billy G’s Gourmet Cookie Dough fundraiser, a Climate Change STEM Kit or so much more!
The best part of a pre-registration is that you can secure your preferred event date, ensuring you don’t miss out on all the added event day extras we may have to offer! But, you still confirm the exact details of your event closer to the time, meaning that if you decide a Slime Spectacular School Run 4 Fun is better suited than a Colour Explosion School Run 4 Fun, it’s as easy as making a phone call! No storing materials for months or returning stock – simply give us a call, and we can switch you over!
How is a booking different?
Depending on the fundraising provider, a booking may be far more complicated than a pre-registration. A booking requires much more information about your school, including bank details, student numbers, dates, and more. This can be challenging if your P&C group or school is not confirmed for 2022!
Lots of fundraising companies release new fundraising programs and events at the start of the new year – meaning that if you are booked in already, you may not have the flexibility to change to a provider with a better, bigger offer! Pre-registrations are simply an expression of interest – securing your preferred dates and free extra inclusions IF you choose to go ahead in 2022!
A booking indicates that you are definitely going ahead. This means that the fundraising company may provide you with your materials at the beginning of the year – even if your event is not for many weeks or months later.
Unfortunately, all of these materials can be difficult for you to store or manage for months on end, and can lead you to feel obliged to go ahead with your event even if you no longer want to. Making a booking can limit your flexibility and prevent your school or group from making the best choice for fundraising!
