Ready to get started?

Great! Before you go further, talk to your family and school about your idea and be sure they are happy for you to go ahead. Then:

  • Step 1

    contact us to obtain an authority to fundraise. (We will check your ideas comply with our fundraising policy and comply with the rules in your state. If it is a school based event, we’ll need the name of a contact person we can liaise with.)

  • Step 2

    sign up to our online fundraising page on either everydayhero or gofundraise. This will make it easy for you to promote your event using social media and online, (provided your school and family are agreeable to this) and easy to track the donations you’ve received. (If you prefer the low-tech way, we will send you out a booklet of receipts and other paperwork you will need.)

  • Step 3

    spread the word amongst your friends, family and school! Use social media, flyers, posters, school newsletters, assemblies etc. The more people know the more they can help.

  • Step 4

    hold your event! Have fun, we hope it is great!

  • Step 5

    Forward your collected donations to us. You may choose to use our online donation page or speak with your school about the best way to send us donations raised in cash.

Oh, and don’t forget to take some pictures and email them to us, we would love to hear about how you went!!

Why use everydayhero or gofundraise?

These 2 online fundraising platforms have been developed to make it easier for individuals and groups to raise funds for their favourite causes through sponsored events and other activities. There is no need for paper sponsorship forms and donations can be made directly online, using a secure portal. All of the receipting is done for you too, making the whole process very simple.

You can create your own event or join an existing one and easily share this via email and social media to friends and family. You can also choose to set a fundraising goal and let your friends and family see how your donations are tracking. Depending on the kind of fundraiser you are holding, this can be a big help.
