Terms & Conditions
Terms & Conditions for Fundraising Activities undertaken by an individual or organisation for the McGrath Foundation
Thank you very much for organising an activity to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation.
Your enthusiasm and generosity enables us to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia, to make life that little bit easier for families experiencing breast cancer, as well as increase breast health understanding.
In order to meet the Foundation’s obligations under fundraising laws, we ask you agree to the following terms and conditions.
We operate under several charity licences and to meet the requirements of those licences, every individual or organisation that does fundraising on our behalf must be registered and approved by us before beginning its promotion or activity.
- Fundraising process
- Once you have submitted your online application through the Funraisin platform you will receive a welcome email from the McGrath Foundation which will include your fundraising activity registration number and your authority to fundraise.
- You may then purchase McGrath Foundation merchandise via Shop Pink.
- Please submit any promotional materials that you would like to include in your fundraiser to us for review and approve, prior to printing or distributing any promotional materials.
- If you made a donation when you registered, this will be displayed on your online fundraising page.
- Funds must be remitted within four weeks of your fundraiser and you must:
- complete the remittance form sent to you in your welcome email and return it to us by email or post: and
- deposit the total amount of your donation into the bank account using your fundraising activity registration number as a reference:
McGrath Foundation Limited
BSB 062-000 Account Number 1389-1910
f. You will be responsible for all costs associated with your fundraising activity.
- Costs and benefits
You will not be entitled to receive any commission, wage or fee in connection with your organisation of the activity raising funds for the McGrath Foundation.
At all times before, during and after your fundraising activity, you must conduct yourself in a manner which reflects the objectives of the McGrath Foundation and does not harm or diminish our good name in the community. You must also make sure that each person involved in your activity conducts themselves with decency, dignity and good taste.
You must not solicit public donations through general door-to-door, street or telephone collections or in public places such as shopping centres or on public transport. People under 18 collecting donations or money need to have an adult with them at all times.
Please do not name your activity after the McGrath Foundation (e.g. "McGrath Foundation Trivia Night") the McGrath Foundation should be stated as the beneficiary of your activity (e.g. “Trivia Night in support of the McGrath Foundation”)
If you are organising a raffle or auction, all prizes should be donated.
The Foundation reserves the right to review and cancel any fundraising activity within three business days of registration if the registered fundraising activity is, in our belief, inappropriate or may harm or diminish our good name in the community.
- Using our name and logo
If this application is approved, you will have the right to use our name and ‘Community Friend’ logo in connection with your fundraising activity, at no charge, provided that your use complies with our brand guidelines (which we will supply to you). This limited right to use our name and logo is granted only to you/your organisation for the 2020-21 campaign only and is not transferable to any third party.
You must not use any of our other intellectual property without our written consent.
If we direct you to stop using any of our intellectual property (including our name or logo) you must do so immediately. You must fully compensate the McGrath Foundation for any loss, cost, damage, expense or liability that we incur as a result of your misuse of our intellectual property.
- Promotional material
If we supply you with any promotional material, you must use that promotional material only for the activity for which you have been granted Authority to Fundraise and only in accordance with our brand guidelines. You must return any unused material to us at our request.
If you plan to publish any promotional material for your fundraising activity (including invitations, advertisements and website copy) that includes our name or our logo, you must obtain our approval of that material (and any changes to it) before its publication.
- Records and reporting
You must keep accurate books and records relating to your activity and the money you raise, including any records required by any charitable fundraising licence or authority that we hold and all other records that we may reasonably require. You must provide copies of those books and records to us on request.
At our request, you must permit a representative of the McGrath Foundation to view your books and records (at a reasonable time agreed between you and us), to verify the amount to be paid to us in connection with your fundraising activity.
- Complying with laws
When fundraising for our benefit you must comply with all laws and regulations relating to charitable fundraising, as well as any conditions of the McGrath Foundation's licences to undertake fundraising that apply to you or your activity (this includes any addition to those conditions, and any variation or deletion of them). Please refer to Schedule 1.
If either one of us receives a complaint or grievance from a member of the public or an employee relating to your fundraising activity, then we must notify the other as soon as possible. Each of us will use our best endeavours to resolve any such complaint or grievance as soon as possible and, at the latest, within 60 days of the day it was first received.
Please note your activity will not be covered by the McGrath Foundation’s public liability insurance. You must make sure that your own insurance policies cover you for all insurable risks associated with your fundraising activity. We reserve the right to require you to take out additional insurance coverage as a condition of your Authority to Fundraise.
- Dispute resolution
If a dispute arises between us in relation to your fundraising activity, either of us may give the other written notice of the dispute. Once that notice is given you must, within three days, send a representative to meet with us with a view to resolving the dispute within 10 days of the date that notice of the dispute was given.
Neither of us may instigate court proceedings or arbitration relating to a dispute without having used best endeavours to resolve the dispute as set out here (however each of us may seek urgent interlocutory relief in relation to the dispute).
Either one of us may terminate our agreement regarding your McGrath Foundation fundraising activity, by giving the other 10 days' written notice. Terminating our agreement does not affect any rights or obligations arising before the date of termination.
You may not transfer any of your rights under any agreement with us, unless we have given our written consent.
This letter is governed by the laws of New South Wales.
