Fundraising Legal Requirements

The organiser of any fundraising event or activity needs to abide by Consumer Affairs charities legislation and apply for any permits and authorities that may be required. A copy of valid identification may be requested. Any organisation raising more than $10,000 must complete an Application for Fundraiser Registration, available on the Consumer Affairs website. Copies of any permits must be sent to Berry Street.

Raffles or competitions with a combined prize value greater than $5,000 require a permit in Victoria. For further details on the regulations relating to any raffles and competitions, and information on applying for permits, please check the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation website.

Upon receipt of this form Berry Street will consider the adult contact (18+) listed above as the 'responsible person' who will completely take responsibility for the running of the event.

A current police check may be required for the named responsible person who is conducting the fundraising activity. Berry Street reserves the right to not authorise an individual, group or organisation to conduct a fundraising activity.

Any allegations or indication of fraudulent fundraising activities will be referred to Victoria Police and Consumer Affairs Victoria (Department of Justice). Any organisations that are outlawed under State or Federal legislation may not fundraise for us.

Organisers wishing to use Berry Street's name and logo must gain approval from Berry Street. All artwork for any posters or other collateral must also be approved by Berry Street.

All publicity in reference to the fundraising event/activity should clearly state that the event / activity is being organised by yourself or your company. It must be made clear in all promotional material that Berry Street is either the only beneficiary, or is one of a number of charities benefiting from the event.
