There are many different and creative ways you can
fundraise. It doesn't matter whether you're an individual,
group or business - with an interest in the great cause that
is children's health, your fundraising can be a great success.


As a fundraising organiser, you're making a special contribution that Finnan’s Gift both greatly needs and appreciates. When deciding what to do, consider what you would like, and what would appeal to your friends and family, like social or sporting events…

Events and activities can raise significant funds and make a huge impact on the lives of children. And remember, the Finnan’s Gift team is here to help you plan along the way.


Its a great idea to combine more than one activity to fundraise, or use multiple activities at one event, such as a dinner dance with a raffle and silent auction, or a fete with a 'guess how many jelly beans in the jar' competition.


Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Family fun day with picnic games

  • Trivia night

  • Dinner dance, gala ball or cocktail party

  • Concert or music performance

  • Dinner party - at home or at a restaurant

  • Movie night - at the cinema or in the backyard

  • Sporting days - cricket, footy, lawn bowls

  • Fun endurance challenges - a walk, run, swim, bike ride,
    skipping or triathlon event

  • Calendar themed events - Christmas, Valentine's Day,
    Mother's Day, Spring Carnival, Winter Wonderland…

  • Casual or themed clothes day at your school or workplace

  • A prize raffle or auction

  • Pre-loved fashion sale, garage sale, market stall or
    homemade goods stall

  • Or unique event of your own!
