Fundraising with Girls’ Night In is easier than ever before!
Every host will get their own Girls’ Night In fundraising page which your friends and family can easily donate to. All you need to do is share the link!
Your fundraising page
When you register for Girls’ Night In, a fundraising page will be created for you. This is where you can show some flare and share why you’re passionate about fundraising for Girls’ Night In. You can upload your own profile and cover image, and update the name and description for your personal fundraising page.
Your fundraising page is the easiest way to collect donations for your event. Your guests can donate directly to your page, and if you collect cash on the night, these can be added as an offline donation in your fundraising dashboard. Every dollar you raise supports Cancer Council Victoria’s work in helping people facing women’s cancers.
Set a fundraising goal
Remember that no amount is too small when you’re contributing to a cancer free future! Knowing how much you’re hoping to raise will give your friends a sense of how much they should donate to help you.
Spread the word
Sharing your fundraising page through social media and email is a great way to inspire donations. What a great way to fundraise before and after your event, so you can kick back and have fun with the girls on the night!
We’ve seen so much solidarity in the Victorian community through the challenges we’ve had to face recently, so don’t be afraid to ask for support.
Ask your guests if they’d share your page too. Unfortunately, cancer touches everyone at some point, so you’d be amazed at how many friends and family members will want to support you.
Approach your employer
Ask your employer to match the amount you raise at your event and double your fundraising total.
You’ll never know if you don’t ask! Many employers are happy to match-give, so why not give it a try?
Involve local businesses
Find some local businesses that could supply raffle prizes or items for auction. Approach businesses well in advance of your event as they might take a while to get back to you.
Highlight the cause
Don’t be afraid to share your personal story and tell your guests about your passion for a cancer free future. Unfortunately, most people have felt the impact of cancer in their life, so they will understand what you’re trying to achieve and will want to support you.

Jodie and Tracy's story
"It started off as friends of friends and we had 10 -20 people and now we're up to 130 women. We have had a second-hand clothing store, sold candles, worked with a local Aboriginal artist, invited musicians and having better prizes brought in a lot of fun as well.”
