Fundraising at School

What a school community can do to support people living with allergy and anaphylaxis.

Here are just a few ideas?

Food Allergy Week

Every year A&AA promotes allergies and awareness during Food Allergy Week, why not use one of the following ideas during this week, however, anytime during the year is OK too!

Go N.U.T.s

Wear No Uniform Today!

Mufti day at school with gold coin donation.

Paint One Fingernail

At your school, why not take in some nail polish to paint the students’ fingernail, and charge a gold coin donation! Why only one? It symbolises the one in 10 babies born with food allergies in Australia. Post pictures on your social media channels using #allergyaware.

Face painting

Have a team of students do face painting for students at school for gold coin donation!

Baby photo guessing

Everyone in the class brings in a baby photo of themselves, and the classmates need to work out who is who. Gold coin entry fee and a small prize to the winner of the most correct answers.

School Disco

Why not run a school disco and make it a fancy dress theme too. Sell glow sticks for extra profits. Prizes such as stickers could be handed out for categories like best dressed, best dancing, craziest hair style etc.

Crazy Hair Day

Have a team of students using hair colour spray to decorate the students’ hair for a gold coin donation! Why not sell hair accessories too?

Film evening

Using your school hall/oval, host a film evening selling popcorn and cold drinks.

Teddy Bears Picnic

The Infants section of your school could have a Teddy Bear Picnic, for a gold coin donation. Prizes such as stickers could be handed out for categories like happiest bear, most loved bear, smallest bear, biggest bear and most colourful bear.

Silent classroom

Why not challenge a class to being silent for an hour, any students who make a noise pays a 5c fine to a total of $1 per student. Challenge the teachers to teach without talking with the same fine system.

School Fete

Why not run a stall at your school’s fete with proceeds going towards A&AA.


Run a raffle and ask students to donate items towards hampers.
