Community fundraising is a great excuse for getting your mates together to raise money for a good cause.

By becoming a Cerebral Palsy Alliance community fundraiser you will be joining our wonderful community of supporters, helping build futures for children and adults living with cerebral palsy and their families.

Before you start, think about what size of event or activity you can realistically do and much money you can raise. Set a realistic fundraising goal for yourself that you think you can reach. It doesn’t matter if you raise $10 or $10,000, every cent counts!

Take a look at your immediate networks, friends, family, employer, work colleagues and local community. Think about how they could sponsor or donate to you and the amount that could be raised from each group.

How you raise your funds is completely up to you! You can try something new and unique, or go with tried and tested activity that you know will be successful. Why not try online fundraising? It’s fast, easy for you and your donors to use and takes most of the stress out of fundraising.

Take a look at the How to Fundraise section on this page.

Before you can proceed with your activity/event you’ll need to apply for an Authority to Fundraise. Simply fill out the application form or email our Community Fundraising Assistant for help.

When your activity/event has been approved you’ll receive your Letter of Authority to Fundraise on behalf of Cerebral Palsy Alliance.

Other important things to consider:

  • applicable insurance requirements (your activity/event will not be covered under Cerebral Palsy Alliance insurance policy)
  • applicable council/government permits
  • applicable licences
Get the word out! The more you promote your event, the more chance you have of achieving your fundraising goal.
Think about your supporters and the best way to reach them. There are endless ways to promote your activity/event from email, Facebook and Twitter, flyers and posters, word of mouth…

Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s logo is available on request; any use of this logo must be approved by Cerebral Palsy Alliance.

Please email our Community Fundraising Assistant a copy of any promotional material prior to distribution. Depending on the event we might be able to help promote your event to our social media community too, so just ask!

This is the part that makes all the hard work worth it! To ensure we can start putting your funds to good use (and to keep everything legal) Cerebral Palsy Alliance requires funds to be presented no later than two weeks of your activity/event, wherever possible. Funds can be deposited to Cerebral Palsy Alliance in a number of ways.
