Fundraising is defined differently under the different laws in each state. In general, the following types of activities are fundraising:
- requesting donations to help a person, cause or organisation (whether in person or online)
- selling merchandise where some or all of profits will go towards helping a person, cause or organisation, or
- holding events to raise money for a person, cause or organisation.
