1. Take part in local fundraising events
Taking part in events is a great way to get involved in your local community, whilst also raising much-needed funds for EdConnect Australia. For every dollar raised we return $3.95 in value back to the community.
That means more young people and more schools who need our help receiving support. You’ll also be helping to raise awareness about the important work we do to help young people get the most from their education.
It’s easy to get involved in existing fundraising events or organise your own.
2. Organise your own event
Raising funds through your choice of event has never been more fun or simple! Help us reach more young people in need by organising a fundraiser of your own.
There are so many to choose from – whether you want to host a dress down day at work, host a morning tea, hold a trivia night or anything else that sparks your imagination. You could even give-up presents for a special occasion, like your birthday or engagement, and ask for donations instead of gifts.
Team Building Events
Get your team together and come help us out in school for a day.
Dates as required

We will work alongside your team to develop an action packed fun day that will help your team come together whilst giving back to one of our school communities. As each of our school communities have their own unique needs activities can be varied and will be tailored to also suit your organisation’s needs, experiences and skills.
Activities can include revitalising or developing community gardens, refurbishing playground equipment, or helping out with much needed grounds maintenance. You may be able to help out in the school canteen for a day at a breakfast clubs or even assist in helping listen to kids read.
What’s included: Tailored package facilitated by EdConnect Australia, lunch, refreshments and an EdConnect Australia Cap that you can wear proudly.
Snag for Success
Flip a Snag or more! (Various Dates)
Looking for something a little different for your team building. How about helping us out by getting your team together and running one of our sausage sizzles for the day. Ever watched MKR and the pressure build in the kitchen and watched the sparks fly…well it may not be quite as dramatic at a Sausage Sizzle but it can be challenging and always fun. It takes organising, coordination, timing and great communication skills.
Wondered how kids manage in maths at school, well now’s your chance to test your mental arithmetic as you manage multiple combinations of snags and drinks and deal with change…all without the help of a calculator.
Up to 12 people on a rota system
8am – 4pm, usually on a Sunday
This helps provide mentoring support services to 2 students for a full school year or learning support to 15 plus students each year.
What’s included: We will work with your team to plan the day at one of our pre-selected locations and will provide all the food, drinks and equipment needed for a successful day. You will be supported throughout the day, receive a fantastic EdConnect Australia Cap and have a sausage sizzle for lunch…what could be better.

- Finish plastered in colour!
The fun doesn’t stop at the Finish Line! With the chance for all fabulous Color Runners to burn a few extra calories by showing off their finest dance moves! Think music, dancing and of course our infamous Color Throws! Trust us when we say, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!
