I have my heart set on fundraising, how do I start?

1: Register your fundraiser

When you complete the registration form, you’ll get your very own Do it for Heart fundraising page to collect donations. When we see your registration page, we’ll give you a call to see how we can help you achieve your goal. 

2: Personalise your Do it for Heart fundraising page

Your dedicated fundraising page is for you to share information about your fundraiser. You can set your fundraising goal and upload your photo. And even include a few sentences about what you are doing and why. Personalising your page will encourage your family and friends to make a donation and help you reach your goal

If you want to discuss your ideas, contact us on 13 11 12 or communityfundraising@heartfoundation.org.au today.

How do I collect money?

The best way to get people donating, is directly through your online page. This provides your supporters with an instant tax-deductible receipt and means you can keep track of your fundraising.

If you plan to collect cash or cheques, you will need an official Authority to Fundraise and banking information. Let us know when you register if you're planning to do this.

Where does my fundraising go?

Every donation to the Heart Foundation helps in the fight against heart disease, which is the number one killer of Australians.

  • fund world-leading research
  • develop care guidelines for health professionals
  • support high quality care for people living with heart disease
  • help Australians to live healthier lifestyles
  • advocate to government and industry across initiatives to improve heart health

Visit the Heart Foundation website for more information on our efforts to create an Australia free from heart disease.
