Any person or organisation wishing to raise funds in New South Wales must, by law, have an ‘Authority to Fundraise’. Once your event/activity is approved, we will provide you with confirmation and a letter giving you legal ‘Authority to Fundraise’ for the Public Education Foundation. Until you have received this letter you are not authorised to fundraise, or advertise that you will be fundraising, for the Public Education Foundation. Each state has different legislation, so please contact us to discuss requirements if you are interested in raising funds in a state other than NSW.
It is important to continue liaising with the Public Education Foundation after you have received initial approval for your event/activity. Additional or altered plans for the event/activity must be approved by the Public Education Foundation.
It is also important for you to remember that the event/activity you hold will not be a Public Education Foundation event/activity. It is an event/activity to raise funds that will be donated to the Public Education Foundation upon the completion. When promoting your event/activity, suggested wording is:
“Funds raised will support the Public Education Foundation to deliver life changing scholarships for students and educators in public education…”
