Fundraising for an ACF sub-fund or Gumnut Account is a great way to get it growing! ACF welcomes fundraising activities but care must be taken to comply with various laws and to make sure the public are not mislead as to what they are supporting.
To start fundraising, follow the steps below.
What about online fundraising?
The benefits of using Everyday Hero or Go Fundraise are that donations are processed through a secure payment gateway and receipts are automatically emailed to donors. All funds are then received directly into the sub-fund.
Note, donors are not permitted to enter into any agreements with other 3rd party fundraising providers without gaining prior approval from ACF.
ACF allows donors to produce published and electronic material on sub-funds and Gumnut Accounts to help in attracting funding and donations. When marketing a sub-fund or Gumnut Account, it’s important that the legal requirements are met.
The ACF Marketing & Fundraising Kit outlines these requirements and provides example wording to help get you started. You can find the kit here.
