Due to our own limited resources – we really appreciate it when individuals, community groups and businesses organise a fundraiser on our behalf.
Do contact us in advance if you are thinking about organising a fundraiser – we might be able to provide some guidance and we’d love to help to promote your event if we can.
Here’s some fundraising tips to help you out.
Unfortunately, we don’t have the capacity to provide volunteers to help support events. The event is the individual’s/organisation’s responsibility and is a great opportunity to involve its own membership in the fun and fellowship of raising vital funds for hospice.
Sponsorship for events (prizes, assistance with costs) is the responsibility of the organiser, but again, talk to us, we may be able to provide you with some leads, or ask you to avoid approaching other businesses who may be already supporting hospice in another way.
Hospice will not assume responsibility for event costs. At the conclusion of the event, after event expenses have been resolved, we ask that one amount (cash or cheque) be handed over to hospice. New Zealand taxation laws state that sponsorship, ticket costs, auctions or raffle purchases do not qualify for taxation receipts.
It’s up to you if you’d like media coverage of your event, but again, talk to us in advance, we might be able to help.
Please check with us about using the hospice logo/branding on any promotional material.
Although we’re serious about our care in the Nelson Tasman community, make sure your event is fun to organise, safe and rewarding.
