Donation Tins

Donation tins are a great way to raise funds for the Canberra Hospital Foundation and it is amazing how quickly they fill up! If you are a business owner who would be happy to display a donation tin on your counter, or perhaps an individual wanting to put one in your workplace, please contact us and we will be able to send you a secure donation tin.

Hosting an event

Hosting a fundraising event is a great way to raise funds for the Canberra Hospital Foundation and help to provide better services to those in need.

In addition to government funding we rely on the fundraising and support of organisations, community groups and individuals like you to assist in maintaining excellence in the provision of health care. 

Ideas for fundraising events

Fundraising can be a fun and rewarding experience and is only limited by your imagination! To help you with ideas, we have put together a list of popular suggestions. Be sure to put your own spin on the event and make sure it is relevant to the people that will be attending.

  • Morning tea - Alternatively this could be an afternoon tea, high tea or lunch  with your school, workplace, sporting group or community group. Ask everyone to make a donation.

  • Guessing Competition - This could involve guessing how many lollies are in the jar, baby pictures or how much an item weighs. Be creative and choose something relevant to the people involved. Charge a gold donation for every guess and have a prize for the winner.

  • Organise a challenge for yourself or with a group - This can include participating in a walk-a-thon or marathon and asking friends and family to sponsor you for your efforts. Alternatively you could ask to be sponsored to give something up such as smoking or shopping for a month.

  •  Host a BBQ or dinner party -  Plan it around an event like New Years Eve or Valentines Day to make it extra special, or give the event a theme such as fancy dress. Collect donations through the evening and even have a raffle or auction!

  •  Treasure Hunt - This is a great one to get the kids involved. Host it at a local park or even in the back yard and ask for a gold coin donation to participate.

  • Movie Night - If you love watching movies this one is fantastic! Organise a fun night in and ask for donations or alternatively have a fun night out at the cinema. Simply charge charge $20 per ticket with profits going to the Canberra Hospital Foundation.
