Fundraise for The Alfred
Community fundraising is a wonderful way to support the work of The Alfred.
Planning an Event
Holding your own event in support of The Alfred offers the opportunity for a rewarding experience where you can bring all your friends, family and even your broader community together.
When it comes to community fundraising event ideas, there is no set formula or limit. You can get creative with your planning and your event can be as big, small, imaginative, entertaining or relaxing as you want!
No matter what type of event you choose, we're here to help make your fundraiser a success.
You can download our Community Fundraising Handbook below for handy tips on event planning, spreading the word, fundraising and more. It’s also important to read the fundraising Terms and Conditions to make sure your event will be a safe and compliant one. You’ll also find our registration form to fill out once you’ve decided on the type of event you will be running.
If appropriate for your event you could also look at setting up an online giving page with our partner GoFundraise.

Community Fundraising in the time of COVID-19
With the new social distancing measures in place, we know this makes many traditional community fundraising events impossible at the moment. And we would also just like to reiterate how important it is for supporting the work of the Alfred to maintain social distancing, to reduce the spread and the strain on the hospital.
However, there is a fantastic opportunity now to get even more innovative and creative with your fundraising event – and such events serve an even greater purpose now of not only helping to raise funds, but also helping to connect our community while we are all stuck at home.
Just some of the great ideas we can now recommend include:
- Holding a virtual trivia night
- Throwing an online dress up party
- Run an online gaming championship
- Have a Netflix movie night
Our Mental and Addiction Health Triage Team have seen a thirty percent increase in demand for their service since the COVID-19 pandemic started. To help support the growing number of people in the community who are reaching out for mental health support, the Triage + response was established.
