You need a permit to hold fundraising activities on Council land such as:
- sausage sizzles
- raffle ticket sales
- appeal stalls
- street collections (such as UNHCR)
You do not need a permit if you wish to hold a fundraising stall on private land. However, you must get permission from the landowner.
If you are serving or selling food
If you serve food as part of your fundraising activities, you must register as a food business. This includes if your stall is set up on private land.
Register as a fundraising organisation
Register with Consumer Affairs Victoria
You may need to register as a fundraising organisation through Consumer Affairs Victoria if you will be raising more than $10,000.
Register your raffle
If you are running a raffle, you may need to register with the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation.
You must have public liability insurance
You must hold public liability insurance with a minimum of $10 million to receive a permit. The permit must be held in the name of the applicant and contain the following clause:
The Permit Holder agrees to indemnify and to keep indemnified, the City of Casey (the Council), its servants and agents, and each of them from and against all actions, costs, claims, charges, expenses, penalties, demands and damages whatsoever which may be brought or made or claimed against them, or any of them, in connection with the Permit Holder's performance or purported performance of its obligations under this Permit and be directly related to the negligent acts, errors or omission of the Permit Holder. The Permit Holder's liability to indemnify the Council shall be reduced proportionally to the extent that an act of omission of the Council, its servants or agents, contributed to the loss or liability.
