Host a fundraiser

We invite you to fundraise to support mental health in celebration of a wedding, birthday, anniversary or another festive occasion. This is a thoughtful way to add meaning to your special day.

In just minutes, you can build and customise your own online fundraising page, then share the link with your friends, family, and colleagues. By asking them to support you with a donation, you both help support mental health on the Central Coast.

Every donation is recorded on your fundraising page along with a message of support from your donors.


Support in memory

A special gift in memory of your loved one is a gift of hope for the future. You can create a gift in memory of your loved one in support promoting mental health on the Central Coast through:

  • Organising a group collection in lieu of flowers
  • Give an individual personal donation
  • Setting up an online tribute so friends and family can join in celebrating the life of a loved one

Bequests

A bequest is a simple, yet powerful way to give a legacy in support of mental health on the Central Coast.

With little or no impact on your lifestyle today, you have the opportunity to contribute to the valuable work of Central Coast ARAFMI and the well-being of our Central Coast community.

You may consider our suggested wording for a bequest to Central Coast Arafmi in your Will:

I give to Central Coast Arafmi ABN 9361 2028 088 (here state the money or assets to be gifted or the residual estate) for its charitable purposes but if this gift cannot take effect, to the charitable organisation in Australia which my Executors consider most nearly fulfils the objects I intend to benefit.

For more information please contact us.
