Organise your own fundraiser

If you are an individual, family, community group or small or large organisation, just follow these three simple steps to start fundraising for UNICEF:

1. Decide on a fundraiser 

You might already have a fundraising idea in mind – if so, perfect! If not, why not check out our fundraising ideas for inspiration.  


2. Complete a proposal to fundraise
Before you get started making your fundraising event a success, we need you to complete and return a proposal to fundraise with a few details of what you have planned. 

Download your proposal to fundraise here 

If you are a school and plan to hold a fundraiser in your grounds then you do not need to get permission from UNICEF to fundraise. Schools have different fundraising regulations to other individuals or community groups. So please go ahead with your event. For more information contact education@unicef.org.au

Once we receive your proposal, we’ll send you a fundraising pack, team UNICEF logo, a poster and an authority to fundraise letter within 5 working days, so your donors can be assured you’re legitimately fundraising for UNICEF Australia.

3. Get started fundraising

Once we have approved your fundraiser you can start fundraising straight away. You might find it helpful to set up an online fundraising page to make it easy for your family, friends and colleagues to contribute. Two of our favourites are EverydayHero and JustGiving


Celebrate and Give 

You can make a huge difference to children’s lives by asking your loved ones to make a donation to UNICEF instead of buying you a gift for your birthday, wedding, or any other special occasion.  

Whatever the occasion, setting up an online fundraising page at Everyday Hero is fast and easy to do! All you need to do is to decide on an occasion and simply follow these three steps:

1. Create your own birthday, wedding or any other special occasion page on the Everyday Hero website. 

2. Invite your friends to visit the page and chip in for your birthday — no donation is too great or small. A gift of $51 can provide 200 vaccines to protect children from Polio. 

3. Track your donations on your Everyday Hero page to see how much you’ve raised.  


Choosing to donate in lieu of gifts will help raise vital funds to support the world's most vulnerable children ensuring they have access to clean water, education, health support and vaccinations.
