Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
You buy our products at wholesale prices and sell them to your community. You bank the difference. Please know that while we provide suggested selling prices as a guide, your group can set your own prices. We will be happy to provide you with guidance and tips to help you make the most money.
Who can do a fundraiser?
Any Australian small local group affiliated with a charity, school, recreational group/club that has members. Groups must be approved by Life Cykel before holding the fundraiser. It’s simple to start, just fill in the enquiry form, we’ll be in touch and you’ll receive everything you need for a successful campaign.
Why should we choose Life Cykel?
Life Cykel allows you to raise money in a sustainable and educational way. Children gain food-connection and curiosity by growing mushrooms and microgreens at home. Life Cykel are connecting people to nature with delicious and convenient medicinal mushroom products in forms of drinks and home growing kits. With 5 farms across the country promoting a circular economy and using recycled coffee grounds Life Cykel urges others to join the Mushroom Movement and turn more waste into food!
How does the WA Education Department Healthy Food policy affect Life Cykel fundraising?
Food rewards provided to students must comply with the policy, including food vouchers. Activities and rewards consistent with the policy will also support the school curriculum. Rewarding with confectionery sends the wrong message and reinforces the RED foods, which are already being consumed frequently and excessively by children and young people. Life Cykel fundraisers support this policy.
Is it only Mushroom Grow Boxes we can sell?
No you can also now sell our mushroom coffees and keep cups
Are there any upfront costs?
It is risk free. It does not cost anything to hold a fundraiser and we don’t require money from you until after the boxes have been sold to your supporters.
How soon can we start?
We will send your fundraising details out within 3 days. You start and finish when you are ready.

What's the best way to sell?
This can vary from group to group, depending on who is selling. Take a look at our fundraising ideas. We care about you and are here to help.
Establish a clear goal for the fundraiser and set a target. For example:- $1,000 for a new school garden or a school trip to Japan. People respond better when they understand the objective.
Build interest with a kick off activity, preferably upbeat and fun, where you announce the fundraiser and challenge everybody to participate
FIll out our enquiry form to get your free fundraising kit
Use notice boards, newsletters, school assemblies, student made posters and P&C representatives to promote the fundraiser. Remember, promote your GOAL! We provide some handy free PDF flyers.
SHORT N SWEET
Run over 2-3 weeks. Any shorter and the students and other volunteers don’t get organised, and longer and they lose the momentum and the forms
BUILD A BUFFER
We suggest you give yourself a “cushion”. Mark the deadline date a few days ahead of the actual deadline, so you have time to deal with changes or last-minute orders.
These dramatically improve sales. There are two forms of reminders: – The organisational ones e.g. newsletters etc. The personal ones. Personally go around to each classroom and reminding the students when they need to have the forms returned, where they have to take them to and what the goal of the fundraising is. Do one about halfway through the activity and the second, the day or two before the final closing day for the orders.
Collect the money with the completed order forms and group them into classes or other logical groups. Tally the results and send us your order
Hand out the orders after we deliver. In larger schools and organisations, sort them into logical groupings e.g. classes or locations to make distributing them easier to organise.
Promote your success to your community, thank your volunteers and start planning for a bigger goal next time around!
