fundraise for scarf

Fundraising for SCARF is an opportunity to do something fun while making a difference.

By raising money for SCARF, you’ll be helping us to provide holistic, friendship-based support to refugee entrants in our community, ensuring they have the tools to build a secure, happy and thriving life.

For every $250 you raise, you’ll be supporting one refugee entrant to access SCARF’s programs for one year. It’s life-changing stuff!

Through our fundraising platform, you have the ability to create your own online page. In just minutes you can build and customise your page, then start sharing the link with your friends, family and colleagues and asking them to make a donation.

You’re also able to fundraise as a team – perfect for workplaces, schools or community groups!

Every donation is then recorded on your fundraising page along with a message of support from your donors. All donations are tax-deductible, and donors will be issued with an automatic receipt.

Ways to fundraise:

1. Join an existing event:

Get sponsored to take on a challenge, like hiking a mountain, taking on an long-distance walk or run, or giving something up. You could even pledge to ride, run or swim 1km for every dollar donated!


4. Celebrate

Sick of getting gifts you don’t need or want? Use your special occasion to do something meaningful instead. Ask for donations in lieu of gifts for your wedding, birthday or another gift-giving occasion.
