Community Fundraiser Application

Ready to make a difference?

If you are preparing to host a community fundraising event, we are here to help! Here are a few simple steps:

  • Complete the below application.
    Fundraisers are required to gain permission from the Association prior to starting. 
  • We will provide you with a written Authority to Fundraise letter.
    This can be shown to any businesses you approach for support, verifying that your event is fundraising for MNDAWA. 
  • Gather your resources.
    We can provide you with a copy of our logo, and you can arrange a selection of merchandise which you can sell at your event. Maybe your team or hosts need an MNDAWA beanie or hat to represent the cause?
  • Prepare to fundraise
    You may like to create a fundraiser page on our website to direct donations to. Perhaps you will promote your event on social media?
