5 fundraising tips for your Biggest Morning Tea!

Posted 3 May 2018.


Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is an opportunity for friends, family or workmates to come together, share a cuppa and some delicious food, and help West Aussies affected by cancer.This year, the official date for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is Thursday May 24 - but you can hold your own tea any time during May or June.

Funds raised through Australia's Biggest Morning Tea help us to continue funding life-saving cancer research, running state-wide education and prevention programs and providing much-needed support to thousands of WA families affected by cancer each year. To help you along the way, we've put together our top 5 fundraising tips, check them out below!


1. If you’re hosting a bake-off, charge entrants an additional gold coin donation. They've gotta be in it to win it if they want the title of Best Baker!

2. Including a raffle in the agenda is a great way to raise money! Want to motivate your guests with a great prize? Contact local businesses, explain the cause and ask if they’d like to contribute to your morning tea by donating a prize!

3. Know an excellent cook or baker? Get them to donate delicious goodies for sale on the day! You can ask guests for a gold coin donation.

4. Place a donation box at the entrance of your morning tea and also at each guest table (or if you’re hosting buffet style, include some donation boxes throughout the food and beverage table)

5. Download a copy of our ‘How Your Money Helps’ poster from the Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea website to display at your event.
