One of the easiest things you can do to help protect Aussie kids from child sexual assault is fundraise online. When you register to fundraise you will automatically get your very own Online Fundraising Page that your friends, workmates and family can use to make quick and easy donations.
All the funds you raise will go towards counselling, preventative education and research, as well help fund our essential lobbying and advocacy on behalf of child sexual assault survivors (for more information on how your donation dollars will make a difference, please GO HERE).
When you register your online fundraiser you will automatically get your very own online fundraising page. This fundraising page can be personalised to reflect the things that are important to you (i.e. why you are raising funds for child protection and what the cause means to you.) You can also add your own photos and post updates on your page and share it across your social media channels. Registering your fundraiser also means we can properly acknowledge and thank you for your support.
You can register and start personalising your fundraising page now by clicking the link below, or if you need assistance in setting it up, GET IN TOUCH with our friendly fundraising team here at the Bravehearts head office.
To help you reach your fundraising goal download our Fundraising Toolkit. This booklet gives you a complete step by step guide to organising a fundraising event or activity (if you’re planning one), as well as tips and tricks for reaching your fundraising goal and a guide to promoting your fundraising efforts.This booklet also contains our fundraising terms and conditions, which are very important to read before you begin.
Bravehearts’ fundraising team is here to support you in your fundraising. You can CONTACT US directly if you have any questions or need advice, but we also have a wealth of essential fundraising resources that you can download right here from this website. Explore these resources to help with your fundraising efforts.
We have provided you with lots of promotional resources to help you raise awareness about protecting kids and promote your fundraiser. You can find these resources in the promotional resources section. We also have a great White Balloon Day MESSAGING GUIDE that gives you instructions on how to compose emails and social media posts to get more donations to your fundraising page.
Yes, you can, but we would prefer that you don’t do it this way. Why? Because when you fundraise via Facebook they do not provide the charity (ie Bravehearts) with any information about each individual person who donations to your Facebook fundraiser. This means we have no way of thanking the people who donated, or communicating with them about the important work we do. It also means that their donation will appear as ‘Facebook’ on their bank statement, rather than getting a tax receipt from Bravehearts. So to cut a long story short, yes you can raise funds for Bravehearts via a Facebook Fundraiser, but it’s far better for Bravehearts AND the donors if you do your fundraising via the online fundraising platform we have suggested.
If you really wish to use Facebook Fundraisers to raise money for White Balloon Day, of course you may do so (and we thank you for this!), just make sure you choose ‘Bravehearts Foundation Ltd‘ as the chosen charity. Below is a link to more information about Facebook Fundraisers.
