Fundraising Ideas for Individuals

There are lots of ways you can raise awareness around domestic violence and raise funds to support victims of domestic violence. The most important thing is to make it FUN for those who are organising your fundraising event and everyone participating. 


Set up an online fundraising page so people can make a donation to your fundraiser. Tell your story. Why you are passionate about raising funds for Shine and the difference their support will make (we will keep in touch and help you once you have created your page. 

Online fundraising: Send the link to your page to all your friends, family and contacts asking them to make a donation to your page to support victims of domestic violence.

Encourage your workplace to go Orange: Hold an orange mufti day or a competition for the best orange workstation with prizes for ‘best dressed’. Hold an orange morning tea or a staff fundraising event (see ‘workplace fundraising ideas’). Encourage staff to get involved and to donate to your fundraiser.

Get Together: Invite friends or family around for an orange themed morning tea, or dinner and ask them to make a donation to your fundraising page in appreciation. Your event can be as big or as small as you wish.

Group Fitting Experience: Host an Intimo group fitting experience at home with your girlfriends with quality lingerie and clothing. Maggie, an expertly trained Bra Fit Specialist will travel to you to provide a group bespoke fitting experience. Add some bubbles, raffles and fun games, encourage your guests to donate and get involved, plus you can donate your host gift to help your fundraising. Contact Maggie Hanna on or 021 610 441.

Give it up for Shine: Give up coffee, your daily chocolate bar, bought lunch and donate your ‘savings’ to Shine. Or get your friends to donate for you to give up coffee, alcohol, swearing, etc. for the month of March.

Community BBQ: See if your local Bunnings, Mitre10, The Warehouse or other retailers run community BBQs and book in to run a BBQ with funds raised donated to Shine.

How Many?: Create a big jar of jelly beans, jaffas, etc. and ask friends, family, colleagues, etc. to guess the number in the jar for a donation – closest wins the jar.
