Fundraising in the Workplace

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

Here are just a few ideas?

Workplace Giving

A&AA are registered on Good2Give. People can give a lot or a little, as many times as they like throughout the year, while they work. Workplace giving is an effective, efficient and ethical way for businesses and their employees to support the charities they care about.

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!

Paint One Fingernail

At your work, why not take in some nail polish to paint your colleagues’ 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.

Racing Sweepstakes

Run a sweepstake at work with 50% of entry fees going toward A&AA and the other 50% as prizes.

Tipping Competition

Run a footy tipping competition at work. 50% of entry fees going toward A&AA and the other 50% as prizes.

Trivia Quiz Night

Run a trivia quiz night with your workmates, charge an entry fee per group of people and arrange for silent auctions. Ask local companies for donations towards prizes.

Cinema Night

Some cinemas will allow fundraisers. This can feature a new release or an old classic, chat to your local cinema to find out more details.

Baby photo guessing

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

Comedy for a Cause

For larger work places, there is an organisation which helps to fundraise by arranging for a selection of comedians to come and entertain for you. Visit for details.

Office swearjar

Did someone say…?

Why not start a swear jar in the office and charge a gold coin penalty.

Profanity, foul-mouthed, cuss, curse, bad language

Host a Facebook Fundraiser

The new and exciting way of raising funds for A&AA from the comfort of your office!
