Start your fundraising journey here and set up your very own online fundraising page.

Or simply, get in touch with our team using the contact form at the bottom of the page and we will help you get started.

Online vs Off-line

Setting up an online fundraising page is the easiest way to start fundraising.

Going online is social media friendly way to fundraise and a great promotion tool. It's easy to provide your supporters with a link to your page via email or text.

For offline fundraising activities you will need an Authority to Fundraise Letter which allows you to fundraise on behalf of Aspect. If you are not creating an online page please contact the Community Fundraising team at initforautism@autismspectrum.org.au or fill in our community fundraising contact form below. You can also call us on 1800 288 476 (AUTISM).

Our team will contact you to discuss your fundraising idea and give you any help you need. We will provide bank details and steps on how to make a direct deposit to our bank account.

Next Step!

Decide on your fundraising activity.

If you haven’t got an idea already, some of the below might help you get started:

For Individuals/Employees:

  • Give something up e.g. technology, TV, alcohol, coffee - whatever your vice of choice may be
  • Bunnings sausage BBQ – get your team together at Bunnings and cook up a storm.
  • Have a trivia event: Everyone loves a good quiz master, grab a great prize, approach a local venue and sell some tickets.
  • Dollar for dollar – ask your boss to match your donation.
  • Sports days/evenings – games nights/poker/snooker/darts – invite friends over to watch a game.
  • Step challenge – who gets the most steps in a day/week – walk at lunch time, take the stairs, walk home.
  • Shave your beard or moustache fundraiser

For Schools:

  • Host a bake sale at school - this is a really easy way to raise money and kids love baked goods!
  • Walkathon – get active and try to walk 10,000 steps each day for a week, get sponsorship from friends and family
  • Get wacky - sock day, hat day, crazy hair day - It's always a winner!
