Our Street Fundraising

If you have any questions regarding our Face to Face fundraising, please contact us between 9 am and 5 pm, Monday to Friday on 08 8464 7900 or by email.

What is face-to-face fundraising?

Face-to-face fundraising is a proven and well-established method of fundraising utilised by many charities to help recruit new monthly supporters. Increasing the number of people who support the Women’s and Children’s Hospital through regular monthly donations, means we can better plan for the future. In addition, it is also an effective way to speak to our community about the work of the Foundation.

Does the WCH Foundation use an agency to fundraise?

Yes, we carefully select our agencies and we only work with professional agencies that are registered with the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) and adhere to the Fundraising Institute of Australia’s (FIA) code of conduct. We have chosen to work with a local South Australian agency that we pay to fundraise on our behalf. The WCH Foundation provides regular training to the fundraising team on our programs as well as taking them on tours of the hospital.  The agency recruits and manages the fundraising team and ensures we have the have the best people for the job. It is less costly than employing and training staff in-house.

Where does the money go?

Funds raised will support a variety of projects at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital. The hospital’s funding needs vary from year to year, but our support falls into these main areas:

  • Equipment
  • Research
  • Hospital facilities and environment
  • Patient and family support

All funds stay in South Australia to support patients and families cared for at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

Can I make a one-off donation?

We welcome one-off donations by telephone on 08 8464 7900 or online via our donation page. Our Face-to-Face Fundraisers are unable to accept cash donations for security reasons.

Can I sign-up to be a Big Heart monthly donor any other way?
