Fundraise for Us
There are a number of ways you can support us! CAPS resources are limited, and community events on our behalf really help us put more of our donations into our key programs so we can truly empower families to thrive.
We work with supporters to help your events and fundraising initiatives succeed with our handy downloadable fundraising kits.
Check out our event ideas, our social media tips and our community fundraising kits. If you’ve got anything you’d like to run by us first, please just get in touch!
Here are just a few ideas to get you started:
Challenge yourself for sponsorship. Getting people to sponsor you to take on something that is outside of your comfort zone is a great way to stretch yourself and support our valuable work. Consider running a marathon, weight loss challenge, ride to work day
Sign up to our newsletter and stay in touch with our upcoming events!
Ask guests at your next birthday party to donate to us instead of buying gifts
Cut out alcohol or soft drinks for a month. Get your family or co-workers involved and get sponsored for doing so as well as donating the money you saved in the month from doing water only See who beats your score
Host a fundraising event for us. Host a fundraising dinner or lunch for clients or a business fundraising challenge.
Have a fundraiser at your school
