Online Fundraising

Powerful online fundraising platform at your fingertips

Our powerful online fundraising platform enables your school to hit your goal by reaching donors far beyond the local community and saves hours during the collection process. This year we are projected to raise over $7.3M online – a record breaking year.

Australian Fundraising empowers our members to raise the greatest amount of money possible with a safe, positive online experience. It is of critical importance that we ensure the safety of children who use our online fundraising platforms. Children can now create their own avatar.

We were the first school fun run company to ensure photos of children do not appear online with reference to their name and organisation. With this in mind, we’ve implemented the best practice solution to benefit from online fundraising whilst keeping children safe online.

Free Online Platform Fees

Schools no longer pay online fundraising platform fees of 6.6% (inc GST) and will benefit in saving hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in online fundraising fees. Best of all, it’s exclusive to Australian Fundraising.

Incentive Prizes

Award winning, on-trend prizes or Go Green. The choice is yours!

What better way to reward your students than by offering outstanding, on-trend prizes, some award winning and exclusive to Australian Fundraising. Create success with the industry’s best prize program!

A New South Wales Public School turned an $8,000 in-house Walk-a-thon into a $65,759 with only 278 students due to the level of incentive prizes on offer. Each student will receive an incentive prize simply by raising $10 or more.

“We were hoping to raise over $20,000 and we were absolutely blown away to have raised that amount of money. The kids have also been well rewarded for their hard work. There’s no way we could have provided the level of prizes without partnering with a professional fundraiser”. Mrs Kelser

No Prizes. No Worries!

Schools have been asking for an environmentally friendly fundraising option without offering student incentive prizes. Our new “Go Green” Option gives you the flexibility of replacing the incentive prizes with native tree planting in communities throughout Australia. View our Go Green Sponsorship Form here.

With every $15 raised through the fundraiser one native tree (or shrub) will be planted in Australia’s only global biodiversity hotspot which is located in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor. This region has an exceptionally high number of plant and animal species found nowhere else in the world. The biodiversity hotspot label recognises that these plants, animals and ecosystems are at extreme risk of destruction.

The Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor was once vibrant with expansive woodlands of York gum and Salmon gum trees. But from the early 1900s, Europeans have cleared more than 97% of the vegetation so they could farm. Now, parts of the landscape are not suitable for traditional agriculture due to problem soils that are increasingly uneconomic to farm in a drying climate.

Tree planting with the Go Green Fundraiser brings many valuable benefits to the environment such as:

– Sequester carbon,

– Help reduce soil salinity,

– Help combat wind and water erosion,

– Enhance biodiversity, and

– Restore habitat for native animals

It also directly contributes to the following United Nations’ Sustainable Development Global goals criteria:
