There are a few ways you can deposit your funds:

Online fundraising page – the easiest way to bank your funds is via your online fundraising page using a credit card.

Cheque – all cheques should be made payable to ‘Dementia Australia’, include a note with your fundraiser ID and posted to:

Dementia Australia

Can people who make a donation at my event receive a tax deductible receipt?

expand_more expand_less

Donations on your online fundraising page will be automatically receipted to the email address provided when the donation was made.

If a tax deductible receipt is requested for a cash donation, you will need to provide the fundraising team with a record of the donation amount and donor contact details in order for Dementia Australia to provide individual receipts once you have banked the funds. Receipt books cannot be provided to fundraisers.

Tax deductible receipts are only provided when a donation over $2 has been made; raffles, auction items and other goods are not tax deductible.

I’ve lost my receipt. Can I get a reprint?

expand_more expand_less

Yes, we can send you a copy of your receipt if you need it. Please contact us and we’d be happy to send it to you.

Where do the funds I raise go?

Your fundraising will directly support those living with dementia, their families and carers. With your support Dementia Australia provides a range of services to the community including:

  • National Dementia Helpline where people can talk to caring and experienced professionals;
  • Living with Memory Loss programs where people can obtain information and talk confidentially with others in a similar situation;
  • Library and information services which provides access to dementia related consumer health information and services;
  • Assisting many in time of need with our education seminars, workshops and programs.

Will Dementia Australia help promote my event?

expand_more expand_less

While we will endeavour to provide as much assistance as possible and may have the opportunity to provide social media and/or traditional media promotion, this cannot be guaranteed for all fundraising activities.

Does Dementia Australia provide public liability insurance?

expand_more expand_less

If the event you are hosting is a public event, generally you will require public liability insurance. Unfortunately, Dementia Australia cannot provide you with this insurance for your event. This is something you will need to arrange yourself.

What is an Authority to Fundraise and do I need one?

expand_more expand_less

An Authority to Fundraise is a signed letter from Dementia Australia, giving you approval to raise funds on our behalf. Before planning your fundraising event, contact Dementia Australia Fundraising team to request this approval.
