School fundraising in Australia - the good, the bad and the ugly
Fundraising in schools. Whether you love it or hate it, are totally involved or stay away, we want to hear from you.

We are two journalists writing about school fundraising, thanks to a grant from the Walkley Foundation.

We are keen to hear from anyone involved in school fundraising - parents, grandparents, teachers, community volunteers and more. Even if you have no direct personal connection but have heard about it or seen reports in the media, please share your thoughts.

We're keen to hear views relating to all school types - primary, high, city, regional or rural - as well as across school sectors - public, independent and Catholic.

By taking part in this survey, you'll be helping us understand school fundraising so we can share our insights with a national audience. We're also looking at data and speaking with principals and education experts, so your response will be one piece of the big picture puzzle.

We'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences!

We estimate that this survey will take between 10 and 20 minutes to complete.

All questions are optional.

[A technical note: If multiple choice questions aren't letting you select more than one response in, please select 'Other' and type in all the numbers of the options that you would have ticked.]
