Should I contact Plan International Australia before organising my fundraising activity?
We would love to hear from you prior to your fundraiser. You can let us know what you’re planning by completing the Fundraising Proposal Form here. Once complete, you can promote your activity as an official Plan International Australia fundraiser giving your supporters confidence in where their donated dollar goes. We can also provide you with resources and support to ensure that your fundraiser is a success.
Where will the money go?
Donations you raise bring lasting improvements to the lives of children and their communities in developing countries. Plan International Australia works with communities all over the world to provide food, water, sanitation, education, support as well as resources for emergencies.
Our website is the best source of up-to-date information on our activities and programs if you need more information on what we do.
How should I collect donations?
We recommend that you carefully consider the risks associated with collecting cash and, where possible, enable people to donate online. Sign up to GoFundraise and share the link. This is the easiest way to promote your activity, and raise funds.
Where you do collect cash, we recommend that you convert it to a bank cheque or money order as soon as possible.
Can donors receive a tax deductible receipt?
If a donor wishes to receive a tax deductible receipt from us, we recommend that you advise them to make their donation directly to us via our website, call us on 13 75 26 or donate to your GoFundraise page.
How and when should I provide the funds I have raised to Plan International Australia?
After your fundraiser, please return the funds within 14 days.
Securely post cheques and money orders to GPO Box 2818, Melbourne VIC 3001 with your contact details on the back (in case we need to call you to clarify anything).
If you would like to deposit the funds please call us on 13 75 26 for banking details.
Once received, our friendly fundraising team will then be in touch to confirm and give you a big thank you!
