Decide on your fundraising idea

There are so many fun ways that you can choose to fundraise for Foodbank Queensland, so pick something you love.  Be sporty, host an event, set yourself a challenge.  It can be big or small because every cent raised is important!  Scroll down for some ideas.

Create your fundraising page

It doesn’t take long at all to get your page up and running to kick start your fundraising. The online system is very easy to use and leads you through everything you need.


Start fundraising!

Your fundraiser will make a positive impact on the fight against hunger in Queensland. So let as many people as possible know about it! Use these four simple steps to get the word out and your fundraiser rolling.
   

Here's some ideas to get you started:

Get Sporty

Run, bike, swim, yoga, skip, climb, dance - do whatever you love. Smash your PB, clock a distance or set a daily goal simply to get active.  Set your target, then go chase it.

Host an event

Have fun with friends and raise funds at the same time. What could be easier! Host a dinner, have a sausage sizzle, hold a movie night, organise a garage sale. The options are endless!

Kick a habit

Making change is hard, but what better way to keep yourself inspired and on track by doing it to raise money to help others.  Keep that resolution to quit smoking, learn a new skill, reduce screen time…

Celebrate a milestone

Instead of gifts at your next birthday, anniversary or major milestone, ask your friends and family to donate to Foodbank Queensland.  Talk about the best feel-good present ever! 

In Memory

Donating to Foodbank Queensland in memory of a loved one is a very special way to honour their life and legacy. It also makes a significant impact to those experiencing hunger.

Fundraise your way

Make your fundraising as unique as you are.  We only ask you to let us know your idea before you get going. Send a message to fundraising@foodbankqld.org.au.

 

It’s so simple to start your Fundraiser:

Set a target.

How many dollars would you like to raise? Remember if you are close or have reached your target – increase it! People may be less likely to give if they think you are near your target so increase it and raise more! Also, it’s a good idea to share how donations will help. For example, “Did you know that every $50 will provide 100 meals to Queenslanders in need?”

Donate to yourself.

Show your supporters how much fighting hunger means to you by donating to yourself. This will also encourage your supporters to match or exceed the $$$$ donated.  

Share share share.

Make sure you share your fundraiser with family, friends, and colleagues across all your social channels. Post as much as possible, even after your event, to encourage as many donations as possible! Also, make sure you tag @foodbankqld. 

Ask ask ask.
