Hosting an event
Online or offline, individual or team, your fundraiser can be as simple or as exciting as you want to make it.
Here are some tips to turn up your donations
REGISTER TO GET YOUR LOUD SHIRT DAY ONLINE FUNDRAISING PAGE
It’s free and, with one click, you can email friends and family about your page or link to social media to make some noise about your fantastic fundraising feats.
GET THE BOSS ON BOARD
You’ll be amazed how much this helps your fundraising efforts
Challenge other workmates, or even neighbourhood businesses to take part in Loud Shirt Day and compete to see who raises the most money.
Ask your employer and workmates if they will match your fundraising total, dollar for dollar.
THINK BIG AND SMALL
Give people a range of options on how they can contribute and get more people on board. If it's a bake sale, sell $2 biscuits and $50 cakes. If it's a raffle, set tiers of prizes.
Sell refreshments at your event or even run a raffle – ask friends or family to donate items, or perhaps your boss will donate something exciting as a prize.
COLLECT LOOSE CHANGE
Label up an old jam jar and put it at the end of your desk all October to gather everyone’s loose change.
Create an entertaining way to mark your fundraising achievements.
Sending in your donations
So you’ve raised a few laughs, possibly a few eyebrows, but most importantly some lovely life-changing cash. Here’s how to hand it in so we can put it to work.
Funds raised through your online page will automatically get directed to us, which means you don’t have to do anything. Your supporters will be emailed a receipt when they make a donation to your page.
For those of you collecting donations at your event, you can still add these to your online fundraising page.
Alternatively, it's OK with us if you want to keep it all offline.
Either way, you'll just need to deposit the money into our bank account (details below) and flick us an email with your details and we’ll make sure it’s added to your page.
