Hosting a fundraiser morning tea is a great way to bring your community together and to show outwards support for LGBTQIA+ Australians while you’re fundraising for Pride Foundation Australia. Not only can a morning tea fundraiser be an enjoyable event, but the donations you raise will also make a great impact in increasing the amount of philanthropic funding towards improving the lives and equity of LGBTQIA+ Australians. Below are our recommendations for hosting a successful fundraiser morning tea.
Step 1: Set a date and time
Choose a date and time that works well for your community. Generally, morning tea is a great option as it is a relaxed and casual time of day, and people are often free to attend. Choose a date that is at least a few weeks away to give yourself enough time to plan and promote the event.
Step 2: Invite your
Invite your guests to your event via email, social media, or traditional invitations. You can also ask attendees to RSVP to help you plan for the right number of guests. Encourage people to bring friends and family along, as the more people who attend, the more money you can raise for your chosen charity.
Step 3: Plan the menu
A morning tea is all about the food, so plan a menu that will tempt your guests. You can include a mix of sweet and savoury items, such as muffins, scones, finger sandwiches, and pastries. Consider asking your guests to bring a plate to share to add to the variety of food options.
Step 4: Organise decorations and tableware
Decorate your venue with items that match the theme of your event or reflect your donation to Pride Foundation Australia. You can access downloadable and printable material made especially for fundraising for Pride Foundation Australia right here. Make sure you have enough tableware, such as plates, cups, and cutlery, for your guests.
Step 5: Plan activities
To keep your guests entertained, plan some activities that are related to the charity you are supporting. For example, you could have a quiz or trivia game about the charity or cause, or have a silent auction or raffle. Make sure to have some small prizes for the winners, such as chocolates or small gift cards.
Step 6: Set up a CrowdRaiser and put out a donation box
Set up a donation box at the event so that guests can make a cash contribution towards Pride Foundation Australia if they prefer. You can also set up your own unique fundraiser using GiveNow’s CrowdRaiser tool and ask for donations online, click here to learn more about how to set up a CrowdRaiser for your workplace fundraiser event.

After the event, make sure to thank your guests for attending and supporting your fundraiser. Let them know how much money you were able to raise and how it will help those in need.
