Listed below are some of the fundraising organisations we are aware of who work with Parent Groups. If you have other suggestions based on your school's experience, please let us so know and we will add them:
Students can turn their colourful artworks into keepsake items like plates, drink bottles, clocks, placemats, mouse pads, reusable bags and much more.
Children complete their drawings on the included paper, either in class or at home. The templates are then sent to the warehouse in the reply paid envelope supplied with the starter kit and posted back once completed. Determine your pricing to raise up to $6 per item.
Telethon Community Cinemas
Raise money for your P&F group and Telethon’s children’s charities. Buy adult tickets for $10, sell for $14. Buy children’s tickets for $5 and sell for $7. (Minimum order 25 voucher tickets).
All voucher tickets have no expiry date and can be used at any of the four locations- Bassendean, Burswood, Joondalup, and Murdoch.
Your P&F receives $2 per pair of socks sold, with a $50 bonus for each 100 pairs sold. For example, if your school sold 510 pairs, you would raise $1020 + $250 bonus = $1270. If you choose the classic option, you can also set your own selling price to raise even more.
You may like to order the coloured powder and equipment and run it yourself, or let an organisation manage it for you:

Trivia Nights and Bingo Fundraisers
These parent only events are a great way to “friend-raise” at your school, but also raise funds if you incorporate silent auctions, raffles and games throughout the evening. We recommend you develop a committee for these larger scale events. For more information and suggestions to get you started, please contact our office on 9338 9985.
Containers for Change
