Fundraising is a fun, rewarding way for individuals, families and workplaces to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children suffering from trauma, abuse and neglect. Whether is it by hosting a morning tea, running a chocolate drive or creating a personal challenge your efforts make a real difference to the lives of the children and families we work with.

Getting started is easy. Set up your own fundraising page online through Everydayhero and spread the word about your event to friends and family.

5 Steps to Success

1. Set a Goal

Work out your goal and the best way to achieve it. Plan a timeline and research details such as location, staff, budget and other essential requirements. 

2. Get in Touch

Contact us and tell us about your proposed fundraising activity. Once approved, you will be issued a Letter of Authority allowing you to proceed with your event on behalf of Berry Street.

3. Promote

It is important to get your message out there and get as many people involved as possible. We can assist with promotional material and ideas on promoting your event. 

4. Plan your Event

Create a schedule for the day of your event. Let us know if you need any help. Don’t forget to enjoy yourself and take plenty of photos.

5. Evaluate

Think about what worked and what didn’t. This way you can improve for next time. Most importantly thank everyone involved, from donors and staff, to yourself! Everyone needs to be acknowledged.
