We all remember doing a class school fun run! A great way to encourage physical activity, the added incentive of bonus prizes and extra inclusions make a school fun run a favourite of all ages. Standard fun runs are the easiest on the market, with minimal organisation and our flexible online online fundraising platform.

Our School Fun Run can be adapted to suit any type of A-thon. Perhaps add a fundraising element to your annual sports event, a Lap-A-Thon or Walk-A-Thon. Or why not use our fundraising support to host a Spell-A-Thon. The opportunities are endless with Australia Fundraising. McDowall State School used our standard School Fun Run to host a Spell-A-Thon and raised $80,000 over two events.

Forget the days of time consuming fundraisers, logistical nightmares and paperwork galore. The School Fun Run is designed to put the fun back into fundraising!

Australian Fundraising have been making fundraising successful and stress-free by doing the heavy lifting for fundraising committees like yours. We can help you take your fundraising profits to new heights.

Although our online platform is the ultimate fundraising tool, the real results are generated by fundraising heroes. People who are committee members, just like yourself, and the generosity of your school community. We’ve helped raise more than $110 million for schools and organisations since 1999. We promise that you are in good hands!

Technology that drives results!

Did you know, participants that fundraise online usually raise three times more than their peers who don’t? It’s now easier than ever to boost your fundraising profits with an exciting and 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.

Incentive prizes or Go Green. The choice is yours!

Motivate families to raise more money with the hottest incentive prizes in fundraising. There are new prizes every year, in every single category, and students can reach for bigger goals.

Add excitement and boost participation with our bumper selection of incentive prizes. 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 smart watches, 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

Students can also share in $200,000 of free sponsorship credit by reaching milestones online and become a Fundraising MonSTAR, rewarding themselves with a real life MonSTAR Bag Tag. Each student from the class with the most profile pages created online will also receive MonSTAR Handballs.

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 the incentive prizes with native tree planting in communities throughout Australia.

For every $15 raised through the fundraiser, one native tree (or shrub) will be planted in Australia’s only global biodiversity hotspot, 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 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:
