Fundraising for the Cathy Freeman Foundation can be really simple and fun! 
HERE ARE SOME IDEAS to get you started.


At the Cathy Freeman Foundation, we take fundraising very seriously because without it, we wouldn't be able to deliver our life-changing education programs to Indigenous students. But that doesn’t mean we don’t like to have fun at the same time! Here are some gold-coin donation fundraising ideas:

Wear red for a day
Host a morning tea

Wear a red t-shirt to school or work. 

Gather some treats and have a cuppa. Invite a local Traditional Owner to do a Welcome to Country and tell you about their local history and culture

Host a sausage sizzle
Run a quiz

Who doesn't like a sausage sizzle? 
Run a gold-coin-donation sausage sizzle.

How much do you know about Indigenous culture? Dedicate some time to learning more about your local Indigenous culture

Host a walkathon
Give something up

Get sponsored to give something up. What will it be? Chocolate? Social media? TV?
