 FUN'RAISING!

Flagstaff is holding an exciting fundraising event to celebrate the International Day of Disability! From 26 November - 3 December 2019, we are calling upon you to host a charitable food event that will encourage guests to donate generously for a great cause.

All of the proceeds that come from your scrumptious event will have a huge social benefit! Flagstaff needs your help to fund the construction of an accessible kitchen and accompanying cooking program for people living with a disability. This initiative teaches crucial cooking, dining and social skills that will stick with participants for a lifetime while giving participants a valuable sense of independence. So what are you waiting for? Let's get planning your food extravaganza!

First, we need to choose a type of event. This could be a BBQ, breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, dessert — or anything in between. Then, think of a theme and invite your guests. This can be anyone, but we find that fundraising is a particularly great opportunity to catch up with family members, work colleagues and friends that you haven’t seen for a while. Ask them to contribute a donation on the day to go towards the fundraiser. You could even ask your favourite restaurant to host your event for you — all in the aid of charity!

We have developed a bunch of downloadable goodies to help kick-off your event! Click here for a comprehensive event guide featuring event ideas and informational on donating. Click here for a guest invite template and here for a placemat.

If you would like to make a donation online, please click here to donate via MyCause. Donation boxes are also available, email us for more information. If you are a restaurant or business and would like to host, please email or phone on 4272 0203. 

All donations over $2 are tax deductible, but we need a list of people who donated. This includes a valid email address and how much they donated so we can send them a receipt. The Flagstaff Group is a not for profit registered charity supporting the development of life skills and employment opportunities for people with a disability in the Illawarra and Shoalhaven. We are an ATO registered Income Tax Exempt Charity with DGR status. CFN: 11129
