So, now that you’ve decided how you’re going to go about fundraising, there’s a few other things that you need to consider.


Unless you’ve got previous event planning experience, you may have a lot of questions about the do’s and don’ts of organising your own one. Don’t worry, we have plenty of experience and have pulled together some simple suggestions to keep you right.


In this section, you’ll find our top 10 tips for organising a successful event. Work your way through these and you’re off to a great start.

While you’ll want to have fun, it’s also really important that you stay safe and legal. If you’re organising a raffle, public event, plan to include children in your fundraising or will be handling cash, then you need to read our guidelines.

Finally, if you’re going to all the effort of raising funds you’ll want to make sure that you raise as much as you possibly can. Check out our ‘Maximise sponsorship & donations‘ page to find out how you can do just that.
