Community fundraising ideas

Get active

Join a sporting event such as a fun run or cycle race, or create your own sponsored event, and challenge yourself while raising funds.

Raise funds at school or work

Get your colleagues and friends together and create an awesome event. Ideas include morning tea; casual Friday; talent contest or free dress day.

Celebrate

Upcoming birthday or other celebration? Ask your friends and family to donate in lieu of gifts and create a lasting memory. 

Activity ideas

Host a run, cycle or triathalon event. A 5k is an easily organised event. Rather than rely solely on entry fees, implement peer-to-peer fundraising so participants can start raising money upon registration.

Host your own charitable flag football tournament. Charge an entry fee per team, or ask participants to fundraise for entry. 

Exercise lessons. Whether you focus on yoga, tennis, or self-defense, host an afternoon where participants can donate to receive a lesson. To find an instructor, reach out to experts at local gyms or studios who might be interested in donating their skills for a good cause.

Workplace or school ideas

Have a sweet tooth? Why not have a bake off at work? Participants compete to bake the most delectable treat out there, and guests can donate for the chance to taste test and vote for their favorites.

At school? Organise a cake sale; talent show; car wash; free dress day; games tourniment or activities such as a 12 or 24 hour dance marathon. 

A pub or wine crawl can make a fun night or day out equally as meaningful. Plan your route with local breweries or vineyards, charge for entry, and invite registrants to secure donations for each stop they make. Put a fun twist on the event by adding a strict dress code. 

Creative or talented?

Host an event that displays your creativity and puts you and your art in the spotlight.

Host an art show. Charge a few dollars for admission and set up a donation table or booth for general contributions. Not only will you raise money, but you’ll also show the community your amazing talent.

Battle of the bands — Invite some local bands and give your community a chance to support Ambulance Wish WA and enjoy the performance.

Create One-of-a-Kind Pieces.  If you’re an artist or an inventor, you can use your creativity to fashion one-of-a-kind pieces that you can then sell or auction to members of the public.

Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding is an online fundraising campaign for a specific project. It differs from traditional fundraising in a number of ways, but the most significant is the importance of setting a target: the fundraiser sets a target, people pledge an amount – usually in exchange for some form of reward, but sometimes just as a straight donation – and the amount pledged/donated is remitted to the fundraiser.

Crowdfunding offers individuals, groups and organisations a way to raise funds via an online crowdfunding platform. A project must have a funding goal and a time limit set by you, the project creator. During this time you spread the word about your amazing idea to your fans, friends, family, and any strangers and sponsors you can wow with your pitch. Supporters simply register and help fund the project.

You’re required to set a specific funding goal for your project and a time limit for meeting this goal. Your timeframe can be as short as one day, and up to 6 months, although the majority of organisations opt for a 30 day campaign. The project deadline is the date until which supporters can contribute funds toward your target.
