A happy crowd involved in fundraising for charity.


Surf Life Saving is a community cause and we depend on the fundraising efforts of people like you to ensure our volunteer Surf Life Savers have the training and equipment required to keep our beaches safe. Every dollar you raise will help us to save more lives.

Many people and organisations across Australia help keep our beaches safe by running an event or activity that raises money for us.

Charity fundraising for Surf Life Saving

Every year our supporters take part in charity fundraising events to strengthen Surf Life Saving.

For example;

  • Schools and sporting clubs often run fairs and sausage sizzles to raise money for Surf Life Saving;
  • As the beneficiary of Golf Days and other corporate events with Surf Life Saving receiving the proceeds;
  • And of course, we get lots of people who love to run or swim for Surf Life Saving in the many organised events across Australia, like the City 2 Surf or the Melbourne Fun Run 

The easiest way to register your event and start getting sponsored is to visit our fundraising pages:
