Financial donations and sponsorship
The best way to deliver impact through our work is by donating funds to help those in need. We can tag donations for specific projects or programmes, or it can go to where the need is greatest. Donations may be eligible for tax deductions.
We also offer sponsorship opportunities to allow organisations to get behind local and national Red Cross projects, programmes and events.
Products and services giving
Products and services can make a huge and direct impact, as well as providing great promotion opportunities. We run several programmes that need the donations of goods and services to deliver impact in the community.
Products and services giving could be:
- Donations of products and services towards: refugee settlement programmes, Red Cross Shops, disaster management work, or any of our community programmes, like Meals on Wheels.
- Charity event support: provision of refreshments, auction prizes or printing, video services, event planning or sponsorship.
- Communications and advocacy: developing and donating fundraising campaigns, direct mail or email marketing campaigns, copywriting for print and social media, photography for social media.
A customer fundraiser - which donates a margin of sales or allows people to donate when they shop - gives consumers an extra incentive to spend with your organisation. It’s an excellent way to promote your positive impact while boosting sales and customer engagement.
