I’m not sure what kind of event to do!
Not a problem. We have hundreds different ideas and tips to get you started. Give us a call, check out our Inspirationpage, or ask your community what they’d like to see!
How do I set up a fundraising page?
There are many websites that allow you to set up a fundraising page – we don’t mind who you use. Some examples include mycause.com.au, gofundme.com.au and givenow.com.au. There are some things you can do on your fundraising page to make it as successful as possible: add as much detail as you can, add plenty of images to allow people to find out more about you, donate to yourself first – then share with your close circle. Then share on your social media!
How can I promote my event?
You can promote your event multiple ways. It all depends on the type of the event (and indeed, if it is open to the public. Many community fundraisers involve a private group of friends.)
Can you share my event on Breast Cancer Care WA’s social media?
Unfortunately, we can’t share all our community fundraisers on our social media. Do talk to our team about how to publicise your event, as we may have ways to talk about it, or contacts that can help. We’re all ears!
