Fundraising Guidelines

All com­peti­tor groups in the club are encour­aged to under­take fundrais­ing to sup­port the Club in gen­er­al and also their own group’s com­pe­ti­tion activ­i­ties and inter-state cam­paigns, par­tic­u­lar­ly to help pay for freight of equip­ment and trav­el costs for the entire group, such as the hire of vehi­cles.

There is a sim­ple pro­ce­dure that must be fol­lowed pri­or to mem­bers under­tak­ing any activ­i­ty, which uses the name of the Club, or its good­will, or from which mon­ey is raised for the ben­e­fit of mem­bers who will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in any club activ­i­ty or surf sport event to rep­re­sent the Club.

Mem­bers wish­ing to organ­ise a fundrais­ing activ­i­ty must fol­low the 7 process steps out­lined.


An inte­gral part of the process is to iden­ti­fy to which aspect/cost of the operational/competition activ­i­ty the funds raised will be allo­cat­ed.

Organ­is­ing groups will receive 85% of the funds raised which can be allo­cat­ed to their nom­i­nat­ed operational/competition expens­es.

The remain­ing 15% of funds raised will be retained by the Club for gen­er­al use in the nom­i­nat­ed competition/operational area of the organ­is­ers.

The peo­ple involved, antic­i­pat­ed prof­it, and any Club facil­i­ties or equip­ment required for the activ­i­ty should be advised at the plan­ning stage.

The process is out­lined in the Club’s By-Laws (17.2) which can be found on the Club’s web­site.

Please note the Club will not pro­vide funds in advance to sup­port fundrais­ing activ­i­ties.

The organ­is­ers take on the respon­si­bil­i­ty and risk of pur­chas­ing items for the event, then deduct from prof­its.
