Go for Gold!

Set up your own fundraising event to help sick kids

Join thousands of Australians choosing to help sick kids this year. During the Gold Appeal host your own event to raise funds for the latest equipment, medical research and vital services that help young patients survive and thrive. You’ll also be giving children the priceless Golden Gifts that come with world-class care - more understanding, less fear and better outcomes. 

There are so many things you can do to raise money for sick and injured children, from organising your own individual or team fundraising event, to collecting donations in celebration or in memory of someone. You could also get sponsored to participate in a community organised activity, including our Team Kids events. 

You are only limited by your imagination and it’s easy to get started!

See the options below of what you can do. If you’re unsure then that’s OK too. You can contact our Community Fundraising team for inspiration and advice. They would love to hear from you! Otherwise, download our How to Fundraise guide.   

How you can help

Collection tins

Collect coin donations in your shop, reception area, office or at an event - it's an easy way for you to support Sydney Children's Hospitals Foundation!

Collection tins can be picked up from our office in Randwick or delivered to your business. Once the tin has been filled, simply return it to us and we’ll send you a thank you certificate. Call 1800 244 537 to order your tin.

Fundraise at work

Get your workplace involved in our Gold Appeal by bringing your colleagues together to fundraise and have fun. Why not ask your your boss to undergo a challenge for the right price! Dare them to spray their hair gold or wear a gold outfit for the day. You could also organise a gold themed trivia night for your team.

If you'd like more ideas and support contact our Community Fundraising team - 1800 244 537 or fundraising@schf.org.au. We'll send you a fundraising kit and help you with your fundraising goals.

Fundraise at school

Our Gold Appeal brings hundreds of schools across NSW together to raise money for our Hospital. There are plenty of ways to get involved, from simple fundraising activities, like a mufti-day or a disco, to large events, such as a whole-of-school sporting event or a gold treasure hunt.

Register your school’s fundraiser by contacing our Community Fundraising team - 1800 244 537 or fundraising@schf.org.au. We'll send out a fundraising kit and support you every step of the way with fundraising ideas and stories to share with your school.

Create your own fundraiser

When it comes to organising your own gold fundraiser we recommend finding something that you love and adding a bit of sparkle! 

How you decide to fundraise is up to you but if you'd like some inspiration and advice contact our Community Fundraising team - 1800 244 537 or fundraising@schf.org.au.
