How the Community Fundraising and Events Team can help your Conference fundraise!


The Community Fundraising and Events Team is available to assist all Conferences with community fundraising so that you can continue to raise funds and assist those in your local community.

Please see below some ways in which we can work together.

1.  Personalised Conference Online Fundraising Page

We have our portal for Conference fundraising activities within NSW.  Our personalised pages gives your conference a personalised alternative (and a unique QR code) to the general Christmas Appeal link. It will reflect your own activity (the sky’s the limit!), your own funds raised and serve as a great tool to include in all parish and conference communications online and via email (to local businesses, family and friends also).

For those of you who are yet to use it, please take a look at this ad for more information and this link

Please take a look how some conferences are using their personalised pages:

2.  Smart minis

Smart Minis are a permanent tap n go machines that have been allocated to regions across NSW.

Smart minis are an easy and effective way to collect donations where you simply scan the credit card and follow the prompts on your app on your phone.

3.  Shopping Centre Collections

If you would like to conduct any fundraising activity at your shopping centre please approach them for approval first.

We can provide you an Authority to Fundraiser Letter, unique QR Code and link to your very own personalised Vinnies Fundraising Page or buckets for physical donations.

4.  School Sleepouts, Community Sleepouts or Fundraise Your Way Initiatives 

5.  Team Vinnies

Team Vinnies will be back in 2024 for another year of amazing events and fun which, through your participation, will raise much-needed funds for the most vulnerable in our community.
