Running fundraiser FAQs
When you sign up for one of the running festivals we partner with, you can raise funds for Sacred Heart Mission at no additional cost to you or Sacred Heart Mission. During and after the registration process, you will be able to select the charity you want to fundraise for as well as your fundraising target. You will also be asked to set up a fundraising webpage to promote your cause. Don’t worry, this doesn’t take long and you will be guided through the process. Once your fundraising page is live, you can share it with your friends, family and workmates and ask them to support your run and your charity of choice by making a donation.
If you would like to do a charity run for people experiencing homelessness at a different running event in Australia, you can set up your personal fundraiser on Sacred Heart Mission’s My Cause page. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions – we will be happy to help out!
We encourage you to personalise your fundraising page by adding photos of yourself and by sharing why you chose Sacred Heart Mission. You can also post training updates and fundraiser milestones on your social media accounts to keep your supporters up to date on your progress!
If someone can’t donate to your fundraiser, ask them to share your fundraising page instead.
To provide your friends and family with more information about Sacred Heart Mission, feel free to talk to them about the work Sacred Heart Mission has been doing in our community for more than 40 years. You can also share our information about homelessness in Australia with your supporters to highlight the importance of this cause.
All funds raised will go directly to Sacred Heart Mission’s wide-ranging homelessness services, including Engagement Hubs like our Dining Hall. Keeping the doors of our Engagement Hubs open enables us to continue to offer people essential support, and provides the crucial first step for people on their journey out of homelessness.
