There are so many different ways YOU can get involved as a fundraiser for Telethon Kids. Start by having a think about what you’re good at, and what you enjoy doing. Need some inspiration? Here are just a few ideas to get you started:

  • Challenge yourself – Ask your friends to sponsor you to run a marathon/ride your bike/compete in a swim.
  • Host an event – Invite your friends to a morning tea/picnic/dinner party/dress up party and ask them to make a donation at the door.
  • Forego your presents – Instead of receiving presents for your birthday, wedding, or any other special event, ask people to make a donation on your behalf to the Telethon Kids Institute.
  • Put on a performance – Are you a singer, dancer, comedian or actor? Why not put on a special performance, and donate the proceeds from the ticket sales?
  • Get your local sports/community group or school/university involved – hold a sausage sizzle, have a bake sale, hold a raffle – and then donate all the proceeds to Telethon Kids.

We run all our fundraising programs through an online platform called Funraise, as it’s a safe way for your friends and family to donate to your event. It allows them to donate straight to Telethon Kids Institute through your personalised page (all they need is access to a mobile/tablet/computer) which cuts out the hassle for you of having to collect each donation. To get started, all you have to do is set up your own page - it’s easy!

Prefer to fundraise offline? Get in touch via email or give us a call (our details are in the 'contact us' box), so we can help facilitate your event.

The key to fundraising is to let as many people as possible know about your event. The more people you send your page to, the more people that you’re giving the chance to donate! Send people the link to your fundraising page, for the easiest and safest way for them to donate to your event.

By setting up your own fundraiser for the Telethon Kids Institute, you've done something amazing. Thanks to people like you, the Telethon Kids Institute is able to continue its important work of bringing hope and health to children throughout the community. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
