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