Fundraise for SCARF

Fundraise in a way that suits you and make a difference for refugee entrants in the Illawarra.

By raising money for SCARF, you’ll be helping SCARF to provide holistic, friendship-based support to refugee entrants in our community, ensuring they have the tools to build a secure, happy and thriving life.

How you choose to fundraise is entirely up to you. We appreciate all types of fundraising, and we encourage you to do something you enjoy!

Through our fundraising platform, you’re able to fundraise as an individual or a team, and setting-up to fundraise is easy. In just minutes you can build and customise your page, then start sharing the link with your friends, family and colleagues and asking them to make a donation.

Every donation is then recorded on your fundraising page along with a message of support from your donors. All donations are tax-deductible, and donors will be issued with an automatic receipt.

Take on a challenge
