This is your opportunity to get involved and make a BIG difference!
At C4C we do a lot with very little - in 2017 the results of our Conversations were similar to those of established organisations with multimillion dollar budgets. But we can't survive - and we can't grow - on volunteer labour and good intentions alone.
Luckily, we have an incredibly community of supporters and volunteers who each year over six weeks do and give what they can to help us raise over 50% of our budget through our annual crowd funder.
That crowd funder and those efforts are quite literally our lifeblood. Without them, we would not have done any of the groundbreaking work we have done so far - face to face conversations with over 3000 people in 18 months and expanding to Queensland would never have happened.
This year our plans to double our reach and expand to other areas where our work can be most impactful depend on raising $165,000 by the end of May - which we can do with your help.
Sign up today and do something fun, rewarding and incredibly impactful!
Last year over 100 people engaged their communities in all sorts of creative ways over six weeks to raise a combined total of $150,000. Some raised $300; some $3000 or even more! Every bit helped. This year we're looking for 150 people to do their bit to enable conversations with over 4000 people.
Not sure? Nervous?
That's normal, but the world won't change if we don't make it - and this is a really powerful way to make a difference. And we'll support you all the way. And you'll be amazed how much you learn and grow through it. Have a listen to what last year's fundraisers have to say about their experience:
When you sign up, you’ll get your own fundraising page on our crowdfunding site. You can personalise it as much as you like, then set a fundraising goal and do whatever you like (as long as it is legal and not offensive) to reach it.
Last year people did everything from simply asking friends to donate to their page to cycling from Melbourne to Canberra! Lots of people did challenges and events (from simple movie nights to a Harry Potter Trivia Night) and others signed up to our wine drive, selling wine to friends and family.
Whatever you choose to do, we’ll support you with resources, tips, pep talks and by connecting you to an fantastic community of the people fundraising just like you.
To find out more about the different ways you can fundraising, check out our info sheets below:
Challenge Fundraiser: Set yourself a challenge. Ask your friends and family to sponsor you. Be as creative as you like
Event Fundraiser: Put on an event like a movie night, a cocktail or dinner party, an art & craft show or a trivia night
Wine Drive: Invite your friends to order wine through our wine drive. It’s all set up for you. All you have to do is promote it and organise your friends to pick up the wine from you when it’s done
Sales Fundraiser: If you’re creative or you have a secret talent making something, sell your work/wares, to friends or through other channels, and donate some or all of the sales to Climate for Change.
Sign up here now and when our fundraising site is ready, we'll make you your very now page, which you can personalise. We'll also be in touch to provide regular support and answer any questions.
We can't wait to have you on board!
