COVID-Safe Fundraising Ideas

Coronavirus has turned just about everything on its’ head around the world – and school and club fundraising in Australia has been no exception. Practically overnight, Fundraising stopped abruptly and events were cancelled – but this doesn’t mean that your chappies don’t need vital funds to continue delivering mission.

So to help you out (along with a bit of guidance from the Fundraising Directory), we’ve pulled together this list of COVID-safe fundraising ideas.

The Tea Towel Fundraiser

Your children’s artwork on tea towels, bags, and aprons for a treasured keepsake. It’s easy, contactless and it brings the community together, like a yearbook on a tea towel.

Everything you need to get started is in your free coordinator’s kit. They can create a group design or print full-colour individual artworks on tea towels, tote bags, and aprons.

They make it simple by providing everything you need, then you get to do the fun part of getting the kids (and adults) to draw something special. When you’re done, upload or post all the drawings to them.
