Fundraising is a fun and rewarding way to make a big difference to the lives of vulnerable children and families we support.
Fun run, trivia night, bake sale, online fundraiser, high tea or art exhibition – there’s no end to the ways you can fundraise for us! Whether you’re fundraising as a school, parish, community group or on your own, your support makes a big difference to the families we work with.
If you’re planning a fundraiser, get in touch with us for ideas and support. Call our Community Engagement Officer, Susan Parajuli, on 1300 218 935 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are just a few of the many ways you can fundraise.

When: Wednesday 18 September
Where: VenU at Victoria University, Footscray Nicholson Campus

Collect Christmas gifts for children in care
Christmas can be a difficult time for children and young people who are unable to live with their families, but a Christmas gift can show them you care. Unwrapped gifts, which allow our staff to choose a gift that truly suits each child, are welcomed.
