The Bernie Banton Foundation is blessed to have, and relies on loyal fundraising supporters, a small number of corporate backers, some government funding and members of the general public making donations, bequests and people giving in memory of a loved one, to maintain our 24/7 asbestos diseases victim support services and to keep our head above water. Without supporters raising funds for the Foundation we quite frankly wouldn’t be able to continue with our vital asbestos victim support and advocacy services as we currently do. There are many ways to fundraise for the foundation. Unfortunately, unlike the large charities, we do not have the resources to employ a dedicated full time Fundraising Officer, so hopefully the tiles below will give you at least the initial heads up on how to get started.
As you read through the information, it is worth remembering, the Foundation is aligned with both the Everyday Hero and GoFundraise online fundraising portals. It is quick and easy to set up a fundraising page on either portal, and what is really great, as with the online credit card donation portal, everyone who makes a donation (and fills out the required contact information) receives a tax compliant receipt automatically. Please click on the tile images below to find out how you too can become a Bernie Banton Foundation Community Fundraising Hero, or else call us on 1800 031 731, we’d love to hear from you.
