IDEAS TO MAKE FUNDRAISING MORE FUN!
Hosting a morning tea can be loads of fun. Whether you’re a first time host or a seasoned pro, here are some great tips to make your morning tea a success. Remember that every dollar you raise helps fund Cancer Council’s vital research, prevention and support service programs. Here are a few tips on how you can maximise your chances of success:
Tips for Fundraising
Be clear on how your guests can donate to your morning tea. They can donate:
- Online at any time: via your fundraising page link
- With cash donations at your event: set up a donations box and make sure everyone can see it on the day
- Via the fundraising app, by asking your donors to enter their donations straight into your mobile device at your event
- SMS donations: by texting their donation amount to 0459 11 44 11
- Charge an entry fee
even if it’s just a gold coin donation it goes a huge way to getting great results when it comes to fundraising.
- Host a Charity Function
If you manage to secure goods to use as prizes, a charity auction or raffle can help you raise significant extra funds. Anyone can buy tickets to your raffle - and you can draw the winners at the event.
- Ask people to donate their talents
If you have talented friends or family, get them to donate their services rather than money - then auction them off in order to raise money. For instance, you might have a friend who is a designer - or another who is a plumber. They can then provide their services to other guests as a donated prize.
- Hold a Bake off
Hold a bake-off and get your guests to anonymously judge who has made the best morning tea dish
- Make it Fun!
By setting a theme for your event, and organising prizes, you increase the chances of people attending and making donations.
The Biggest Morning Tea is an opportunity to support vital cancer research and contribute to the provision of essential prevention and support services. Every little contribution counts so roll up your sleeves and support this worthy cause!
