The best time of the year to fundraise

Australia is one of the most charitable countries in the world so it is important to find any opportunity to fundraise for your organisation. Fundraising events are valuable for your charity and it is important to organise events year-round. Not only to raise significant funds for your charity but also to promote the important work you do and to build connections with companies and organisations. Ezybidz is your number one fundraising consultant company and is always available to assist you with every aspect of your fundraising by using our unique Electronic Auction system.

Here are a few annual calendar dates, listed in order, to get you started on your 2015 calendar. Let’s kick off 2015 to be the best fundraising year for your charity!

January is still in play! While most people are likely to be generous towards non-profits during the December month, Ezybidz has found that the curve of year-end giving continues until January-February. Some donors allow for their budget to recover, then they give. Other donors, those who had given away their budgeted charitable amounts long before 31st December, are now able to reconsider you in January because they are looking at their New Year budget. So go ahead and ask your donors for support in January and let Ezybidz assist you so you can get the most out of your fundraising event. It is great to host a fundraising event early in the year to kick off the New Year and keep your charity on the map for the donors and corporate support!      

Summer-Autumn: A great time to fundraise. 
This period is full of public holidays such as Easter, Queen’s Birthday and Anzac day, which is a great time to organise a themed charity event! People are looking for an event to attend so charities should take every opportunity of this.

Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day are underused days to ask for support. People are drawn to value-oriented ways to celebrate these holidays, so giving in memory of, or in honour of, our loved ones or “Mums” works well. The histories of these holidays are rich and culturally varied so you can take an approach that best fits your non-profit organisation. Ezybidz offers several unique and fantastic auction items that would be perfect for these occasions, such as our wonderful Ultimate Indulgence, Champagne Class or Luxury Sailing Packages.

July and August create a cosy family feeling amongst people and therefore a higher level of generosity is present. Ezybidz offers year-round fundraising solutions and will be able to assist you with all of your fundraising events throughout these chilly months. There is nothing as magical as a Winter Ball!

From September to December, Australia is entering spring time and is slowly getting into the Christmas spirit. This leads to an even higher generosity and therefore it is important to start organising your End-of -Year events early so you can ensure that you will raise as much money as possible for your charity, and make the most of your event. Ezybidz offers many amazing items that would be perfect for this time of year such as the Tuscany Winter Wonderland experience which is one of our best selling items.
