Fundraise for us through community or workplace events – easy steps to help you support us during COVID-19

Making Northern Health Foundation your charity of choice for your community or business event is just one way to show your support for your local health service.

As a business or community organisation you will have already considered the impact of COVID-19, on how many people you can bring together including the importance of maintaining social distancing.

The rules around public gatherings and maximum number of people that can gather are changing regularly.  If you haven’t already, we recommend you visit the Department of Health and Human Services website to obtain the latest most up to date information.  Learn more here.

Tools and Support Available from Northern Health Foundation

As a charitable foundation supporting Northern Health our resources are limited but there are still many ways we can offer support for your event.  Whilst we cannot help you with the planning and execution of your event beyond giving advice, we can help you with:

  • providing you or your committee with a “Letter of Authority” which shows that your event or fundraising activity is genuine and you have approval from Northern Health Foundation.
  • fundraising materials including donation forms, banners, posters and collection tins
  • provide you with print quality logos and images for you to use on any printed materials. Please remember Northern Health Foundation will need to approve any use of our logo on your print materials or creative before distribution.
  • If appropriate for your event, you could use Northern Health Foundation’s Everyday Hero page to manage donations – we are also able to assist you to set up your page. Learn more about Everyday Hero click here.
