Do your own fundraising

Cancer is too big an issue for any one of us to tackle alone. We know we are stronger when we work together. By setting up your own fundraising activity you can extend a helping hand to people with cancer and their families - now and in the future.

Option 1: Fundraise online - it's easy! 

It's incredibly easy to create your very own fundraising activity! Check out our You Can For Cancer website for ideas and inspiration about how you can fundraise in support of the Cancer Society. 

You can for cancer is our website especially designed for our community fundraisers. That's where you can create your personalised fundraising page online. It's a place you can add photos, talk about why you're supporting the Cancer Society and post updates about your activities.

It's also easy to share your fundraising page with friends and family by email or social media so they can see what you're doing and give their support. And it’ll keep you motivated too as you track your fundraising progress in real time and hit your fundraising milestones. 

Best of all, online fundraising is a quick, effective and safe way to raise funds – without trips to the bank.

Option 2: Thinking about hosting an event but don't want to create an online profile?

While most community fundraisers create an online fundraising page, some fundraisers may choose to host an event in the community and bank the funds raised into the Cancer Society bank account - that's great too!

Get inspired with our A-Z list of fundraising ideas or check our our fundraising guidelines for more information. 

When you have an idea about your fundraising event or activity, get in touch to talk through your idea with our fundraising team atfundraising@cancersociety.org.nz or call us on 07 838 2027. 

Once your event is approved, we’ll provide a community fundraising pack which includes our top tips for fundraising, banking details and a letter confirming your authority to fundraise for the Cancer Society. 

What next?

It's time to let your friends, family, colleagues – everyone you know – about your fundraising activity and how they can show their support. 

And have fun! We hope you find your fundraising experience enjoyable and rewarding.

Remember, we're here to help! Get in touch with our fundraising team at fundraising@cancersociety.org.nz or call us on 07 838 2027.
