We rely completely on voluntary donations to help continue our work and to grow. Below are some ways you can support BKFA, from asking friends to donate to BKFA in lieu of a birthday gift, to holding a fundraising event, shopping online, attending an event or getting involved in workplace giving.
We love to hear what you’re up to so please share your event or fundraising activity on social media and contact us if you’d like us to promote it through our social media pages. And don’t forget, if you have a fundraising idea to share, please contact us.
Workplace Giving is an ATO approved scheme that allows you to make tax deductible donations directly from your pay, and as the money comes from your pre-tax salary you get the benefit of the tax deduction immediately, without having to collect receipts and claim it in your tax return.
Check with your work payroll office if you are able to take advantage of Workplace Giving. If you’re not, or if they are unable to direct your donation to BKFA, please contact us and we are happy to discuss with them how they can offer this excellent benefit to their employees.

Organise a fundraising event online
We have partnered with My Cause to make it simple and fun to raise funds for BKFA.
On the My Cause website you can build a fundraising page, promote it via social media and email the link to your friends and family who can donate securely online. They can leave a message of congratulations or encouragement and will immediately receive a receipt.
There’s no cash collection, no paperwork and no hassle. What’s more, friends here, interstate and overseas can support you. Its simple to set up, donations are automatically processed and sent directly to BKFA, and details of the donor are recorded and displayed on the event page.
If you’d like to register to fundraise (any way you like!) to hold an Assembly Day click here
For the adventurous, why not set yourself a challenge and fundraise here ?
And for those who like to run, you can register here.
You can also pledge your birthday to BKFA – it’s so simple to do and means that in lieu of gifts, you ask that your friends and family make a donation to BKFA.
Feel free to contact us if you’d like to discuss your event.
Would you rather give the gift of life than receive a gift?
You can ask friends and family to make donations to BKFA in place of gifts, such as for your baby shower or birthday party. They can either donate on our website as a gift to you (and you will receive a lovely gift or e-card) or some people prefer to have our site available for them to make an online donation at the actual party. For more information, visit our Donations page. Some people even like to turn their event into an assembly day – click here for more information.
Raise money for BKFA
We are always amazed at the variety of ways people fundraise – whether it be as simple as spreading the word amongst friends, family and work colleagues to collect money to donate or clubs and community groups that donate proceeds from their annual quiz night or other events to our cause. The ideas are limitless!
And there are lots of great reasons too:
- in memory of someone special
- for a special occasion such as birthday or baby shower
- to sponsor any sporting event, such as triathlons or surf lifesaving events
- to support a personal challenge
Funds raised can either be donated as a single amount to go towards our sustainability programs overseas and keeping the BKFA running, or put towards the funds required to hold an assembly day.
