Fundraise for Liver Kids

If you would like to fundraise to help us implement our programs and resources, this page contains the information you need. In most states in Australia, anyone wishing to raise funds on behalf of a charitable organisation must hold an Authority to Fundraise issued by that organisation. To obtain an Authority to Fundraise from Liver Kids Australia, the Terms and Conditions shown below need to be accepted and a Proposal to Fundraise form completed and sent to us.

You are not authorised to name Liver Kids Australia as a beneficiary of and fundraising activity until you have received an Authority to Fundraise letter from us.It will usually take around a week to review your proposal and send the Authority to Fundraise.

We do not currently use commercial fundraising sites due to the fees involved. However, it you would like to set up tracking of dollars raised and targets for your event, we are able to do so on this website through your dedicated fundraising event page.

If you have any queries about fundraising or would like to discuss your ideas before filling in the proposal form, please don't hesitate to contact us at admin@liverkids.org.au
