Healthy, Fun Fundraising that Makes a Difference

The Fundraising Group is committed to providing healthy, fun and easy-to-coordinate fundraising programs. Its two programs, The Golden Circle School Fun Run Program and SunBlock Suncream, have become two of the most popular fundraising programs throughout New Zealand in the past few years, with many schools adopting these as their annual fundraisers. The programs are suitable for schools and groups of any size, are flexible, require minimal coordination and can be easily integrated into the school curriculum.

A total of more than 275 schools and groups throughout New Zealand are currently participating/or have already participated in the Golden Circle School Fun Run Program this year

This flexible, fun & healthy program that can be combined with any school/group activity i.e. Cross Country, Fun Run, Walk-a-thon, Dance-a-thon…the type of event, date & location of the event is entirely up to the school/group involved. The program offers an amazing 47% profit + prizes and increases student participation and motivation. All students and teachers participating in an event receive participation certificates and free Golden Circle Products. Great incentive prizes are also available to all participants raising $10 or more.

The Fundraising Groups’ other successful program, SunBlock Suncream, gives schools and groups the opportunity to raise money whilst promoting the Sun Safety message at the same time. SunBlock Suncream is the perfect fundraising formula – a high quality product with great profits, excellent payment terms and great incentive prizes. The high quality SPF30+ suncream is available in 100gm tubes, 50ml roll-ons and 100ml after sun gels, and conforms to Australian & New Zealand Standards for Sunscreens. Schools and groups receive a profit of $2.50 per tube or gel sold and $2.00 per roll on sold.
