Community fundraising

Fundraising for Guide Dogs Tasmania is a great way to make a difference and get your local community or friendship group involved in supporting a worthwhile cause.  Whether it be holding a fundraising event at your school, community group, group activity, or workplace, there are many ways you can help. Every cent is important to us. Really.

Community Fundraising Kit

You can make a difference to the lives of people who are blind or vision impaired in Tasmania by creating your own fundraising event and getting your community involved.

The 2018 Community Fundraising Kit will help you register your own fundraising event or initiative. It contains everything you need to know to get started including guidelines, activity suggestions and information about your responsibilities as a fundraiser.

Everyday Hero

If you want to use an online page to collect donations and share with your friends and family, use Everyday Hero to easily build your own fundraising page.  Guide Dogs Tasmania is listed, making it easy for you to become a hero, and help us train heroes.

Since being founded in 2007, Everyday Hero has been helping people all over the world connect with and support the causes they love. So whether you’re donating yourself or collecting on our behalf, you can track your voice, time and effort you put into your activities to see what a real difference you are making.

For the younger fundraiser

Looking for something simple for a child? Come in to our office for a Puppy Bank (a small moneybox). Take it away, put loose change into it, bring it back. We’ll count the change and send you a receipt. Donations of $2 and over are tax deductible. SIMPLE.

Ambassador Dexter

Did you know that we have an Ambassador Dog? Dexter‘s very important job is to visit community groups, schools and businesses who raise funds for us, promoting the good work of Guide Dogs Tasmania. He also promotes tummy rubs and cuddles!
