Frequently Asked Questions


How does a school fun run work?
A School Run 4 Fun is the easiest school fun run fundraiser!

Once you register your school or group for a school fun run with Australian Fundraising, we will help set up your online fundraising platform (My Profile Page or Plant-A-Difference). Your school or group will then fundraise for 4-6 weeks!

Australian Fundraising will send you everything you need for a successful school fun run! All you need to organise is any obstacles, like a commando crawler, slime pit or crazy noodle tent!

Once you have run your fun run and your fundraiser has closed, it’s time to order and receive your incentive prizes! Your profit will be deposited into your account at the completion of the fundraiser, and you will be charged an invoice from Australian Fundraising.

How much does a school fun run cost?
All school fun runs at Australian Fundraising have no upfront costs. Instead, we run a percentage-based model. Your school or group will keep 60% of the profit raised, assuming you are eligible to reclaim the GST on our invoice.

Your school fun run will cost your school or group 40% of the amount you fundraise, to cover the costs of your fundraising and advertising materials, account management, freight and more.

Who can participate in a school fun run?
A School Run 4 Fun is open to any school, sporting or community group! Our school fun runs are safe, inclusive and available for any school or group to participate.
How do we fundraise?
Fundraising with a school fun run is best done online! With our state of the art fundraising platform, you can host a cashless fundraiser that is exciting and engaging for all participants.

At the beginning of your fundraiser, each student will receive a sponsorship booklet with instructions on how to create their online profile. From there, participants will share their profile page via Facebook, email and text message!

How do incentive prizes work?
Every participant is eligible for an incentive prize when you choose a school fun run with Australian Fundraising. Simply by creating an online profile page, participants receive a FREE Monty the Monstar Hologram sticker, even if they don’t fundraise.

For students who raise $10 or more, they will also receive their first incentive prize. You can choose traditional prize ordering (where students can pick up to five prizes from various prize categories) or automated prizes. School who choose automated prizes give participants the chance to win up to 15 unique incentive prizes!

The more money participants raise, the bigger value their incentive prizes can be worth! Australian Fundraising also awards prizes based on the lower dollar value. That means, if a participant raises $100 and chooses a prize from the $24 – $49 category, they will still have $76 left to claim on other prizes!

What is Go Green?
Are you a sustainable school or group, looking to reduce your impact on the environment? At Australian Fundraising, you can replace incentive prizes with tree or coral planting! Host an environmentally friendly Go Green school fun run and make a positive impact on our environment.

In partnership with Carbon Neutral and The Great Barrier Reef Foundation, you can choose to swap incentive prizes for one tree or one coral to be planted in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor or the Great Barrier Reef! For every $20 raised, Australian Fundraising will replace your incentive prizes with a tree or coral. Ask our team about Going Green today!
