Fundraising Month

August 2014

Get involved with MarionLIFE Fundraising Month in August 2014 and fundraise for us!

Every day people who are homeless, lonely, sick, mentally ill or unemployed walk through our doors seeking some hope, often at a time of crisis. Our aim is not only to deal with these emergencies, but help our clients move towards lives that are not just surviving... but thriving.

Right now we are able to offer emergency relief, financial counselling, community meals and many other opportunities for friendship and love but we need additional funds.

Will you consider fundraising for us?

Whether it’s holding a morning tea for friends, making and selling cakes or any other great ideas you may have, your practical help right now will be much appreciated! See below for more ideas.

We are also looking for regular givers who can donate a few dollars each month so that we can plan for the future. Find out how you can start regular donations.

Fundraising ideas:

  • Hold a morning tea and ask people to donate what they might normally spend at a cafe

  • Host a dinner party and ask guests to donate the amount they might spend for a night out

  • Bake and sell cakes and biscuits

  • Sell MarionLIFE Soap Nuts at your workplace of to your friends

  • Make and sell goods

  • Hold another event and donate funds to MarionLIFE

  • Any other great ideas you may have

Where will the money go?

Donations will go towards supporting our vital work with vulnerable people in the local Marion community.
