How do I register? 

It is simple and free to register to host a Telethon Party and raise funds for sick kids. Just click on the register button at the top right of this page and fill in the details of your Telethon Party.

What do I have to do?

To help work wonders for sick kids firstly you need to register your party and set up a fundraising page. Then you need to set a date for your party (between 1 April to 30 April), invite your guests, plan your fundraising activities and ask your friends, family and community to support your event through your social media.

You will find lots of useful resources for your party here: https://fundraise.childrens.org.au/event/telethonparties/resources 

Do I have to host my Telethon Party on the evening of Nine Telethon?

No! Watching Nine Telethon on Saturday 23 April, while you host your party will of course add to the atmosphere of the event, but we know this date may not suit everyone.  We encourage you to host your party whenever it works for you between 1 - 30 April 2022.

Can I have a Children's Hospital Foundation representative attend my workplace or school event?

This time of year, is extremely busy for our team, preparing for Nine Telethon.  However please email us at fundraise@childrens.org.au with your request and we will see what we can do.

I have hosted a Telethon party and received cash, how do I bank funds? 

First, you will need to go to your bank and deposit the donations into your personal bank account (make sure you have a credit card or debit card attached to this account).

To get the donations added to your fundraising page you must add the donations as a offline donation.

To do this go to your online fundraising page, click on my your name in the top right corner, click on the my donations drop down, then add an offline donation. Fill out the appropriate details including the credit or debit card details. The funds will then be deducted from your account and reflected on your fundraising page. 

I shared my fundraising page on Facebook and it prompted me to add a donate button, should I use this?

If prompted to add a donation button on Facebook we do advise against it, as we cannot link these donations to your Telethon Party page. If you share your unique fundraising page web address, your supporters will be taken to a secure site specifically for your Telethon Party and be issued with a tax-deductible receipt.
