Here are ideas to help you on your way. The way you choose to raise funds is completely up to you...we're just here to help you get your creative juices flowing!

  • Make sure you let everyone know exactly why you're raising funds for Kidney Health Australia. Give them the heart of your story, what it means to you personally and why they should help you achieve your fundraising goal.
  • Organise a school or work cake stall / bake sale.
  • Talk to your boss, gym or school to consider "matched giving", i.e. whatever funds you raise, they match!
  • Invite your staff/social/sporting club to support you with a sausage sizzle, trivia night, auction, or golf day.
  • Organise a garage sale or swap night; pull out all our old books, clothes you no longer wear.
  • Conduct a raffle - ask local businesses to donate products or services for you to raffle or auction at work or social/sporting groups.
