Know your responsibilities as a fundraiser for Lifeline Tasmania, the use of the Lifeline Tasmania brand (name and logo), money management and legislative requirements.
Lifeline Tasmania will register your event and send you a Community Fundraising event identification number and Community Fundraising Kit so you can start organising your event.
Within 4 weeks following your event, please forward any funds raised to Lifeline Tasmania along with your Donation Return Slip and Fundraiser Results Summary page. Please also send through any remaining donor receipt templates, receipt books or any left over marketing collateral.
Lifeline Tasmania reserves its right to disapprove or withdraw its approval for a fundraising event at any time if it appears that there is a likelihood of the event organiser failing to adhere to any of the terms and conditions as set out in the Fundraising Proposal and Agreement form. In the event that this does occur, written notification will be provided by Lifeline Tasmania.
Community fundraising event ideas and examples
There are plenty of fun and engaging ways to raise funds to support your community. Find one that suits you or come up with your own idea!
To get you started here are some ideas and examples of how others have challenged themselves and raised funds for Lifeline.
Get mobile for charity
Enter a fun run, walk, or bike ride event and have family, friends and colleagues sponsor you.
Dinner and Auction
Organise a dinner with friends, family and colleagues and include an auction to raise more funds, seek out local businesses who may be interested in donating goods to auction.
Get together with friends, share your favourite movies, grab some ice cream and popcorn and donate what it would usually cost to go to the cinema.
Undertake a personal challenge and be sponsored
Give up chocolate, learn a new skill, go on a long hike or other physical challenge.
Donations in lieu of gifts
Instead of Christmas, wedding or birthday gifts, why not consider asking for donations instead.
Seasonal or themed fair
Hold a Valentines, Easter or Christmas fair, selling crafts, cakes, cards and homemade gifts.
Host a trivia night and charge an entry fee. If you hold a trivia night in a pub, restaurant, club or café, you could ask the owner to donate some takings from the night.
Wash cars, mow lawns or other odd jobs
Offer your services to friends, family and neighbours and get them to make a donation in lieu of what they would normally be charged.
Hold a talent quest or karaoke night
Dare your friends to perform by sponsoring their talent!
Dress up day
Get together with your school mates or colleagues and sponsor the principal or boss to dress up for the day. Persuade them to match the funds raised and donate themselves!
Girls/Boys night in
Ask your friends to bring a dish, have a night in and donate what money would usually be spent on a night out.
Second hand clothing fashion parade and sale
Get together with friends and donate clothing that isn’t wanted anymore, price the items, hold a fashion parade and sell them to the highest bidder.
