Fundraising Tips

We rely heavily on the generosity of the Australian public to deliver our services and research — we literally cannot do this without the support of people like you.

The vehicle and participant entry fees paid on registration only covers the cost of delivering the Kidney Kar Rally. That’s why we ask participants to fundraise as well, so the funds donated go towards our Kidney Kids and Youth Programs.

You’re making a big difference by taking part in the Kidney Kar Rally and we need your support to raise as much money as possible!

Check out all our top tips on how to fire up your fundraising engines here.

Here’s how to kickstart your fundraising...

Upload a photo to your fundraising page

Update the wording too, and share why you’re taking part in this year’s Kidney Kar Rally. The more personalised you make your page, the better!

Go to your dashboard

Put your foot on the (fundraising) gas and make the first donation to your fundraising page

It might sound silly, but the most successful fundraisers always make a donation to themselves first. It lets people know that you’re serious about raising money for kidney disease, and sets the bar for the average gift amount.

Go to your dashboard

Rally your friends & family and get the word out

No point building a lovely fundraising page if you don’t show it to anyone, so email your page to friends and family, or simply copy the link and post it to your social media accounts, and ask people to sponsor you.

It’s not as scary as it sounds. People get a kick out of helping out their buddies! Remember, it’s all for a great cause.

Don’t stall, share on Social Media

Use #KidneyKarRally and your posts will also display on the Kidney Kar Rally home page

Including us in the conversation can also help spread your message.

Email kidneykarrally@kidney.org.au

Thank each person for each donation

Nothing makes a person feel more special than when you thank them individually for sponsoring you. 

Ask again

Don’t be afraid to send another email or make another Facebook post asking friends and family to help you reach your fundraising goal (and beyond), especially in June / July as the event day gets closer. Remember the old saying, if you don’t ask you won’t receive. So don’t be shy and ask again.
