Hold a Facebook Fundraiser instead of receiving Christmas Gifts this year

Did you know you can help us help Queenslanders escape violence by holding a Facebook fundraiser?


What is a Facebook Fundraiser?

A Facebook fundraiser helps you raise funds for charities such as DVConnect. Instead of a Christmas gifts this year, you could ask your family and friends to donate to your Facebook Fundraiser. You can select us ‘DVConnect Limited’ as your charity, then all funds you raise help us to send emergency taxi’s to a families home to transport them to an emergency motel to keep them safe until they can get into a shelter.

Steps to creating a Facebook Fundraiser

  1. Click Raise Money.
  2. Select ‘DVConnect Limited’ as your not for profit charity.
  3. Select a charitable organization, choose a cover photo and fill in the fundraiser details.
  4. Click Create.
  5. Email / message your family/friends inviting them to consider donating to your fundraising page in lieu of gifts.



How your fundraising will help

Thank you for considering us to raise funds for. Your funds will directly help us:

  • Send emergency taxi’s to families who need to urgently leave a violent home
  • Provide emergency motel rooms to women and children who urgently need somewhere to stay before a shelter/refuge is found for them.

I wish to sincerely thank you and the entire DVConnect team for their past and present assistance during these past few years of family turmoil. Without such a wonderful service it would be that much harder for women and children.
