Tips On How To Organise Unique Charity Events

Every year thousands of Australians hold unique charity events to raise donations for our aid programs in Australia and internationally. Our Ultimate Fundraising Kit Book of Ideas has some fantastic unique charity event ideas, from corporate fun-runs to school bake sales and dinner parties.

How To Host A Charity Event

How to host a charity event will depend on the type of event you are hosting as there are different ways you can host a charity event. If you are holding a party or celebration you can ask your guests to donate instead of giving a gift or to donate in memory of someone. You can even have a personalised online donation page where guests can make their donation. When hosting a charity event for Save the Children you can create a fundraiser account then create your donation page.
Alternatively, you can make a once-off donation of all funds raised at your event or you may even be able to make a monthly donation. Regular donations help to provide children in need with healthcare, essential food and clean water and keeping them safe in emergencies and conflict. Donations from your unique charity event will help us make sure that no child, alone, at home or overseas, fears for their life.
