Technology that drives results!

It’s now easier than ever to boost your fundraising profits with an exciting, gamified, user-friendly online fundraising platform.

We have made our cyber-safe online platform as robust as possible, to help ease the load on your volunteers and encourage BIG donations from your school community.

You will benefit from huge advancements to our online fundraising platform, now with gamification elements to encourage engagement and $200,000 in free sponsorship credits. You can elevate your fundraising achievements beyond what would be otherwise possible.

It is of critical importance that we ensure the safety of children who use our online fundraising platforms. We were the first school fun run company to ensure photos of children do not appear online with reference to their name and organisation. Children can now create their own avatar. With this in mind, we’ve implemented the best practice solution to benefit from online fundraising whilst keeping children safe online.

We Innovate to Motivate

Add excitement and boost participation with our innovative selection of incentive prizes! Our huge range of popular toys and gadgets reward participants for fundraising, motivating them to reach their fundraising goal.

Offering more prizes across every fundraising milestone, students only need to raise $10 to receive a prize! From squish balls to PlayStations, every participant will aim for prizes they love.

Students will aim for bigger prizes in 2022, sharing in $200,000 of free extra prize credit! Collect Golden Coins on our online platform and claim them for real-life prize credit. Incentive prizes are an incredible way to motivate students and families to fundraise! They add an additional level of excitement and anticipation that is separate to your event day.

Bigger and better prizes are just the beginning with Australian Fundraising.

Go Green on Land and Sea

Join our goal to plant 150,000 trees and 100,000 coral by 2024! 

Make a difference on land and sea with our Go Green School Run 4 Fun options! Swap your incentive prizes for our environmentally friendly alternative. For every $20 you fundraise, you can fund the planting of one tree in sensitive environments, or give a coral a new home in the Great Barrier Reef!

Can’t choose between tree and coral planting? No problems, let your students decide instead! Your school can do a combined Go Green fundraiser and let each individual participant decide whether they plant trees in a biodiversity hotspot, or plant a coral on the Great Barrier Reef!

A Go Green fundraiser swaps incentive prizes for tree or coral planting, but also reduces landfill by using bulk-packed colour powder. Plus, the chance to win an eco-friendly Great Barrier Reef Whitsunday Escape is another awesome way to help your fundraiser reach massive fundraising targets for your school or group!

Planting trees and coral also has a positive impact on reducing climate change and directly contributes to the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

Offering more prizes across dozens of fundraising milestones, students only need to raise $10 to be eligible for an awesome fundraising prize. From squish balls to Playstations, every family is sure to find a prize to aim towards.

Incentive prizes are an incredible way to motivate students and families to fundraise! They add an additional level of excitement and anticipation that is separate to your event day.

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!

Our Go Green Option gives you the flexibility of replacing incentive prizes with native tree planting in communities throughout Australia.

For every $20 raised through the fundraiser, one native tree (or shrub) or coral will be planted in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor or the Great Barrier Reef.

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 Option 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
