Fundraising Events

You can help raise money for Windermere any way you like - from dress up days and bake sales, to fun runs and trivia nights!

Register the marathon or fun run you’ve been thinking about and ask friends and family to sponsor you – it’s amazing how much you can raise with the support of your family and friends.

Consider hosting a fundraiser at your school, within your local community group or sports club or just for fun with friends - the trick is to keep it simple and just have fun.

Fundraising in Celebration

Whether it's a wedding, your birthday, a special anniversary or a milestone event, why not make your special day even more significant by supporting children and families in need? Simply ask for donations in place of gifts, flowers or cards either by sending our donation link with your invitation or creating a personalised online donation page.

If you need support, contact the Fundraising team on 1300 946 337 or email

Fundraising in Memory

Donating in memory of a loved one ensures their legacy lives on and provides vital support to the community where they lived. You can give a gift in memory at any time to celebrate the life of a loved one – on a significant day each year, or make a one-off donation.

If someone you’ve known has recently passed, you may also like to encourage friends and relatives to make a gift to Windermere in their memory instead of flowers. A gift given in this way can provide life and legacy in honour of your loved one, and we thank you for considering Windermere in this way.

Contact the Fundraising team on 1300 946 337 or email about fundraising in memory.

Wedding favours and ceremonial bonbonniere

Forego traditional wedding favours for something that will make a difference to a local family in need. Consider providing a donation to Windermere in lieu of a gift to thank your guests for being a part of your wedding day.

(Through Kids on Track) I learnt more about how drugs and alcohol affect our bodies. I don't want to end up the same way as Dad so I can now care for my body and make better decisions than what he did.

Resilience for Life has been nothing short of wonderful for me, and enormously empowering. I am feeling so much more optimistic and confident in myself, my driving and taking care of my husband.

My (Windermere) counsellor has been one of the most important supports I have had throughout this whole process. She is amazing. I now see things from a completely different perspective.

I am on the lookout now too - next time I am in a relationship, I will be able to recognise the signs of domestic violence and I won’t let myself get stuck in that sort of position again.”
