Fundraising permits allow charities to collect funds on footpaths, at intersections and set up street stalls within Hume.
There are different permits depending on what activity you wish to conduct.
Council charges no fee for fundraising permits, however there is a limit on how many permits can be issued. You can only apply for twelve permits per calendar year, one day per month. Any additional requests may be considered on a case by case basis.
Applications must be accompanied by the relevant request supporting documentation to be considered.
Fundraising permit application
Fundraising activity permits
Fundraising activity permits are for charitable organisations or not-for-profits that are looking to conduct a fundraising appeal, pledge program or a door knock to raise money.
Street stall and leaflet distribution
Street stall and leaflet distribution activities are for organisations that would like to set up a display on Council land and share information. The Environmental Protection Act 1970 places certain restrictions on the distribution of material such as leaflets which may become litter. This means when applying for a permit you must provide a litter management plan to ensure any distributing material does not end up as litter.
Highway collection permits
Highway collections must be submitted to Council and then to Victoria Police for approval. Applications must be submitted one month prior to the event date and not more than six months in advance of the event date.
If Council permission is granted to conduct highway collections, you will be required to submit an application under regulation 28 of the Road Safety (Traffic Management) Regulations 2009 with Victoria Police. For more information, visit the Victoria Police website.
