  1. Fundraisers must provide Youth Off The Streets (YOTS) with a clear written description of the nature, extent and duration of the fundraising activity, provide a budget of the proposed activity and provide information about the group or individuals organising the activity.
  2. All publicity should clearly state the intention for the money raised e.g. ‘Net proceeds’ go to Youth Off The Streets or ‘X percentage of funds raised will go to Youth Off The Streets’. Please ensure you keep accurate financial records with all incomings and outgoings as YOTS may need to access these.
  1. Fundraisers must make it clear in all their dealings with the public, sponsors and supporters that they do not represent YOTS, but are acting on their own behalf to raise funds which will be forwarded to YOTS.
  1. Fundraisers are not employees or agents of YOTS, nor are they acting in any other representative capacity for YOTS.
  1. Fundraisers undertake all fundraising activities on their own behalf and at their own risk. YOTS will not be liable for any injury, damage or loss sustained as a result of any fundraising activities. Fundraisers should note that they are not covered by YOTS’s liability insurance. Please check if your activity requires local council approval or any permits. This is the fundraisers responsibility.
  1. Any material or products requesting logo representation must be submitted to YOTS for approval. Permission for logo usage will attract conditions to protect the integrity of the charity and its brand, especially if the logo is marketing the activities of an external organisation. Approval is compulsory in this instance.

Soliciting donations in public places such as shopping centres is forbidden unless specifically arranged. Special permits may be required in this instance which will be the responsibility of the fundraiser.
  1. Please also discuss with YOTS any intended approaches to corporate sponsors. Please check our website for lists of people you are unable to approach at www.youthoffthestreets.com.au
  1. YOTS reserves the right to withdraw approval to fundraise should it be deemed necessary by our Organisation. All fundraising would therefore also cease immediately.

  1. The fundraising activity shall be conducted in the Fundraiser’s name, and is the sole responsibility of the fundraiser. YOTS does not assume a coordination role in the activity and its employees cannot assist in soliciting prizes or organizing publicity, (unless specifically arranged and agreed under special circumstances).
  1. The fundraiser is required to keep accurate financial.
  1. YOTS cannot pay expenses incurred by you, but you can deduct your necessary expenses from the proceeds of your event, provided they are properly document and the expenses to not exceed 30% of the total proceeds.
