Fundraising Permits

If you or your organisation intends to collect raffle monies, gifts or subscriptions you need to complete a Fundraising Permit Application.

In deciding whether to grant a permit, we will consider:

  • any other prior approvals for collection of monies, gifts, subscriptions or raffles for the areas and dates requested.
  • any other matter relevant to the circumstances of the application.
  • where relevant, whether permission from the relevant shopkeeper has been obtained in order to collect outside their premises.

Our preference is to support local charitable groups wherever possible.

Insurance

A photocopy of your public liability insurance cover to the value of $10,000,000 will need to be provided. Please contact the Community Safety Team on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) if you have any further questions regarding this permit.

Please ensure all sections of the application are completed and any documents are attached with the application. Please email applications to local.laws@basscoast.vic.gov.au or hand in your application at one of our customer service centres.

Our Local Law No 1 Neighbourhood Amenity 2012 prohibits the collection of monies, gifts or subscriptions without a permit from Council.
