IDEAS AND

INSPIRATION

The MS Melbourne Run + Ride Festival is a fundraising event, raising money to support people living with MS.

All fundraising efforts, however large or small, help Australians living with multiple sclerosis to live well and thrive at home, work and in the community.

Organising your own event can be a great way to involve your friends, family or work colleagues in your personal challenge to fight MS. It can be as simple as you like and it's a way to give something back to those that are supporting your efforts.

Do something that you'll enjoy. Ask your friends for help and most importantly, have fun!

HIT YOUR TARGET IN NO TIME

WITH THESE EASY FUNDRAISING TIPS!

PERSONAL DONATION

Kickstart your fundraising, and show your supporters how serious you are, by making a personal donation to your fundraising page.

SEND AN EMAIL

Did you know that over 50% of donations come from email? Plus, sending individual emails is always more effective than a group email!

SHARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Ask your social networks for help to reach your target, by sharing your fundraising page on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

SHARE AT WORK OR SCHOOL

Put a poster up on your school or work noticeboard, or share a link to your fundraising page on your school or work's intranet and newsletter.

SMASH YOUR FUNDRAISING GOAL

WITH THESE FUNDRAISING IDEAS!

IN LIEU

In place of a gift for any special occasion ask friends and family to donate.

TRIVIA NIGHT

Everyone loves a quiz night! This could be from the comfort of your living room, with friends online, or down at your local pub!

BAD HABITS JAR

At home, or at work, you will be surprised how quickly a bad habits jar can fill up!

UNIFORM SPONSORSHIP

Reach out to local businesses and see who wants to support your fundraising efforts. In return you can pay it forward and wear their logo with pride.

GROOMING CHALLENGE

Still have that "iso" beard? Overdue for a haircut? Now is your chance to use that next grooming session for good!

POKER NIGHT

Get your friends together for a night of fun and play for a cause. Remember to play responsibly and encourage everyone to set a personal limit.

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD

Whether it’s a bake sale, dinner party or a cooking lesson – everyone loves to eat! Feed your friends, family and colleagues in exchange for a donation.

SAUSAGE SIZZLE

Who doesn’t love a sausage sizzle? Many local businesses and large hardware stores will allow charity groups to hold a sausage sizzle outside their stores. Remember to approach your local stores for donations of sausages and bread.

SILENT AUCTION OR RAFFLE

Get some prizes donated and you can host a silent auction or raffle, online or in person.

Planning to run an event or activity where you may collect money other than through your fundraising page link? Want an official document to help you request prizes or other donations?
