You can help us by fundraising

You can make a difference for Queenslanders experiencing domestic violence by fundraising for DVConnect in your community. Not only will you be helping raise much needed funds, but you will be drawing attention to how we can help Queenslanders who are experiencing domestic, family and/or sexual violence. With your help, we can provide more emergency transport, emergency accommodation, as well as develop Safety Plans and provide counselling to Queenslanders escaping domestic, family and sexual violence. 

Authority to fundraise form: Before you start the planning for your fundraising idea, you’ll just need to take a few minutes to complete the Authority to Fundraise form. This is a requirement for any Australian charity. Please email the completed form to . We’ll then respond to you with an Approval to Fundraise letter that you can use when planning your fundraising event or activity. 

We can help you promote your event/activity: The added bonus of us knowing about your fundraising activity or event is that we can help you promote it. We can do this on our website, as well as our Facebook Page and our Instagram Page. If you’re using social media, please use these hashtags: #DVConnect #EndDV #NotNowNotEverTogether. We’d love to post images of your event so feel free to send these through to after your event.

Fundraising ideas


Containers for Change

We’re registered with Containers for Change QLD  Just use the Containers for Change Scheme ID: C10028088 on your next deposit. Every container you recycle through the Containers for Change charity program will mean 10c is donated to DVConnect to help Queenslanders escape domestic and family violence.


Is your Birthday coming up? Hold a Facebook fundraiser

Instead of Birthday presents this year, you could ask your family and friends to donate to us. You can create a Facebook Fundraiser on your Facebook Page and select us ‘DVConnect Limited’ as your charity. Then email/message your family and friends asking them to donate to your page instead of giving you a Birthday gift this year.


Hold a Bake Sale

Get your bake on to help those experiencing domestic violence. You could hold a Bake Sale at your workplace, whip up your favourite cupcakes, cakes, slices and sell them. You could encourage your workmates, or family and friends to do the same. Don’t forget to get permission from the location you want to sell them. If you’re looking for cupcake recipes, check out Taste.


Hold a Sausage Sizzle

A good old fashioned sausage sizzle is a perfect way to raise funds for DVConnect. Get permission from the location you want to hold the fundraiser, then either purchase, or ask local businesses to donate the items you need to make your sausage sizzle. Most importantly, have fun while you raise money to support Queenslanders.


Hold a Purple Morning Tea 

Declare a day ‘Purple Day’ and encourage workmates to wear something purple and make a donation at a morning tea you host. Invite your workmates and encourage them all to wear purple. Perhaps send out funny pictures of not-so-stylish ideas for purple items. Ideas for purple items are endless, they include a purple tie, purple socks, purple dresses, purple nails, purple earrings, or even purple hair. You could go one step further and supply (or ask workmates to prepare, purple morning tea food and drinks.)


Hold a ‘Cutest Pet Photo Contest’

Invite animal loving staff to enter a photo of their pet. Select a date and time, invite workmates to attend and view the pet photos. In front of each pet photo, place a jar and encourage workmates to insert money into the jar of the pet they think is the cutest. Category ideas include Cutest Pet and/or Pet-Owner Look a Like.
