Fundraising for organisations

Events and activities

Quiz nights

If you are conducting a quiz night or an event where alcohol is consumed a liquor licence may be required. If raffles or charitable collections are being conducted in conjunction with the quiz night, a licence also may be required.  For more information, visit the Consumer and Business Services website.

Special events

A special event will generally be a distinct and planned event of community, cultural or sporting significance. Special events can be used by organisations as a fundraising opportunity or to help raise the profile and promote the organisation's functions.

Fetes and festivals

Fetes and festivals are a great way for organisations and community groups to raise money.

Information about organising the perfect fete can be found on the Our Community website.

Chocolate or biscuit drives

Generally no licensing is required, however if raffles or charitable collections are being conducted in conjunction with the drive a licence may be required. If alcohol is consumed a liquor licence may also be required. For more information, visit the Consumer and Business Services website.

Raising money for one-off needs

Raising money for a specific one-off event such as to send an individual or group of people interstate or overseas can be a difficult task, especially if the timeframe is tight.

Even if this may not seem difficult, you will still need to be satisfied that you are going about it the right way.

Suggestions to help volunteer organisations when it comes to raising funds for one-off needs can be found on the Our Community website.
