Get started with your community fundraising

Fundraising for the Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation is a great way to support our work and have fun at the same time!

Step one: Pick your fundraising activity

Our supporters have done it all, from trivia nights and morning teas to Birthday gifts and Bridge to Brisbane entries. If you want more inspiration, you can sign up for our community updates where you will hear all about the supporters who are helping us to turn Beliefs into Breakthroughs.

To help you plan your activity, we can provide a GMRF fundraising kit which will include:

  • ideas for your fundraiser from our current supporters
  • ways we can help you to have a successful fundraising activity
  • fundraising guidelines including your Authority to Fundraise form
  • guidelines on the use of the GMRF logo and images
  • how to donate the money and receive your tax receipt

Please contact Angela Maroney, our friendly Donor Relations Officer on (07) 3394 7284 or if you would like to receive a pack.
