Events and activities
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 may be required. If alcohol is consumed, a liquor licence may also be required.
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.
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 time-frame 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.
