We were looking for a different fundraising option and found St John offered a First Aid Kit Fundraiser. It is a great deal for the club, getting 25% of total profits and we got a free workplace first aid kit for raising over $7,000!

For schools in the Perth area, Cash4Clothing pays per kg to hold a clothing drive and they even provide the flyer design and pick the bags of clothes up from the school for you. A great no effort way to raise serious $$$ by having the kids just clear out the family wardrobes. A great way to encourage inter-house competition as well.

We held a fundraiser last year at our school with photography. Parents could get a stretched canvas for $25 or print for $15. It was a great success with 52 families out of about 380 families at the school participating (Raising over $2000 in one day!!). We have used Border Studios( http://www.BorderStudios.com.au ) twice now and the last year parents could book through their website meaning all we had to do is send the supplied advertising material home with the children and we received $25 per family. By far the easiest fundraiser I have ever been a part of and the parents just love the photos.

Our school held a Family Photography Fundraiser with www.carreephotography.com.au
they are a great company and have lots of incentives, if you book 20 families they donate an extra $250.00
The ladies were brilliant including bookings and the photos are amazing!!!
We raised just over $1500.

We are currently looking at MyPhoneVoucher.com as a fundraiser and I must say its seems too good to be true. Not only is the product easy to sell but they also give free memberships to the schools for staff and volunteers. We also got 10 free memberships to use as prizes for other fundraisers. Payment straight to our bank account...No outlay can't get better than that...
