PLEASE READ THE BELOW TO ENSURE THAT YOUR FUNDRAISER IS NOT ONLY FUN AND SUCCESSFUL, BUT
ALSO MEETS THE CANCER SOCIETY GUIDELINES.
You are responsible for the coordination and management of your fundraising activity, this includes looking after your own health and safety.
If applicable, ensure you have the necessary permits, permissions, licenses and insurances in place and that you follow legal and local council requirements.
Your fundraising activity aligns with Cancer Society’s health promoting messages.
- You are responsible for the publicity for your activity. The easiest way to do this is by promoting your online fundraising page and using the resources available on website.
- If you are producing your own publicity and printed material, obtain approval from the Cancer Society when using the Cancer Society name and/or logo.
- When you are dealing with the public, sponsors and supporters, make it clear that you do not represent the Cancer Society, but you are raising funds to support the Cancer Society.
- Get approval from the Cancer Society before you sign up any sponsors.
- If there are any costs involved in organising your event, discuss these with the Cancer Society before the event to clarify whether or not you can deduct some of the costs from the money that people have donated to the Cancer Society through your fundraising.
- Promote the use of your online fundraising page as much as possible to save the hassle of receiving cash donations.
- Bank all funds raised within four weeks of the completion of your fundraising activity and keep an overview of who donated what amount for those who want a tax receipt.
- The Cancer Society does not accept any financial risk of the activity and is not responsible for the health and safety of you and people involved in your event.
