Fundraising Ideas
Host your own event

Whether it’s a dinner party, afternoon tea or a picnic in the back yard, hosting your own event can be a great way to get family and friends together for a good cause. Why not think about having a theme to make the event extra fun.

Movie Night

Most cinemas support movie fundraisers. Simply contact your cinema of choice requesting that you wish to hold a fundraising event. The cinema can often advise on what to charge. You may also want to include finger food and or a choc top ice cream depending on the venue and the time of your screening.


Urban Descent runs a fundraising abseil every April. It’s a great way to push yourself out of your comfort zone and raise vital monies for lung disease research.

Bake Sale

Bake your way to fundraising success. Whether you run the event at work, school or your home, be sure to find out about any specialist diets (or perhaps just favourites) first to maximise your sales.

Sausage Sizzle

This is a popular fundraiser and it doesn’t matter what the time of year, you can’t refuse a sausage and onion on bread. A request to run a Bunnings sausage sizzles is made in writing on the community or charitable organisation’s original letterhead, and sent to your nearest Bunnings store, to the attention of the Activities Organiser. Bunnings sausage sizzles are very popular and can be booked out six months in advance.
