Hold a Fundraising Event

Fundraising can be a fun, social and creative way for individuals, businesses and community groups to support their favourite charity. All it takes is a great idea, a passionate team of 'fundraisers', and a little (or a lot!) of effort to get the funds raised.

Whether it's something simple like a bake sale, an office mufti day, or more elaborate events such as a movie night or a charity auction. Your support will make a difference.

As we are not government funded, each year Tauranga RDA relies on funding from the community to support the delivery of our programmes. We are extremely grateful when people help us.

If you're interested in holding a fundraising event in support of Tauranga RDA, then please contact us on (07) 544 1899 or email fund@taurangarda.co.nz
We can help you make the event a success and can sometimes assist with resources and advertising.

Fundraising ideas for individuals:

  • Arrange a monthly donation by creating a direct debit arrangement with your bank
  • Put on a lunch, dinner or BBQ with friends with a gold coin entry fee
  • Donate one hour of your wages, once annually
  • Create a family swear jar, with all levies going to Tauranga RDA
  • Run a marathon (or half-marathon) in support of Tauranga RDA, and ask people to sponsor you for finishing the race
  • Organise sponsorship from friends and family for the completion of a key goal, such as meeting a weight loss target or overcoming a fear
  • Sell some of your unused items on TradeMe, and donate the income generated to Tauranga RDA.

Workplace fundraisers can be a great team-building exercise, as well as an opportunity for a business to show their clients and customers how they support the community.
