As a charity the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research relies on the generosity of individuals, groups and corporate sponsors to help fund our sleep and respiratory research. We have partnered with JustGiving to provide you with an opportunity to fundraise online for the Woolcock.
Anyone can fundraise for us! We welcome individuals, families, churches, groups of friends, sporting groups, schools… everyone!
We are grateful to the many individuals and groups who have chosen to run their own fundraising events and donate money raised to the Woolcock.
Firstly you will need to decide on what sort of fundraising activity you would like to participate in, and how you will collect donations. Then, please let us know your plans so that we can help promote your event through our network.
Ideas for fundraising include running a marathon, putting on a garage sale, baking biscuits or cakes for morning tea at work, etc. Lynette De Michiel – read her story under 'Donor Stories' – she got in touch with her local clothing store and asked them to donate a part of the sales made on one given day.
If you plan to collect donations online set up a JustGiving page for your own unique fundraiser and collect donations online. This option has the added benefit of automated receipts emailed directly to donors. Visit the Woolcock’s JustGiving page
