Fundraising

Together We Are Making A Difference

Support from the community is fundamental to the Foundation’s future, as it is in constant need of funds to support its ongoing activities. It is often left to the private sector to underpin the work of charitable organisations, and indeed without this help most organisations would not be able to function.

The Foundation is no exception and relies strongly on the generosity of corporations, service clubs and individual donors. To this end, the Foundation has forged links with many corporations and community groups in the region to ensure optimal organisational strength and effective communication in its fundraising efforts.

The work of the Foundation has thus gained recognition from both the corporate and community sector as a credible, reputable organisation. Significant funds through donor development activities, annual fundraising events and corporate sponsorships have been instrumental in sustaining the Foundation throughout the last 14 years. However, we cannot relax our efforts, as there is a need to generate a sustainable long-term income for the Foundation projects.

We understand that a corporation or organisation may wish to specifically fund, or part-fund a particular project, so we have listed some of the projects for which the Foundation is currently seeking funds.

More details on each project can be obtained from the chief executive officer on 07 4053 6757 or by emailing dulcie.bird@kochfoundation.org.au.

We are also actively seeking to increase our membership of the Friends of the Foundation. The benefits of membership include invitations to special events organised by the Foundation. Subscriptions provide both financial and physical support for the activities of the Foundation and we would like you to consider helping the Foundation in this manner.

A contributing factor to our successful fundraising is that the Foundation has low overheads and all money raised by the Foundation remains in North Queensland. The Foundation is a deductible gift recipient, which means all donations are tax deductible. Donations, corporate sponsorships and bequests, whether great or small, are valuable and important to the Foundation.
