Caritas has a range of ideas and materials to help primary and secondary schools raise funds.
Fundraising is an important part of educating for justice. It shows tangible concern and compassion towards those who live with injustice or hardship. Fundraising can be embraced by a school community at short notice for emergencies, or have a longer-term focus to support sustainable development.
Thank you to our Catholic schools that continue to raise funds for Caritas through activities like the Caritas Challenge and Mufti Mania days. A big THANK YOU to all our Catholic students, teachers and parents.
We’d like to hear more about your fundraising efforts. Please send photos and stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please DO NOT organise collection and donation of goods following a disaster. Receiving goods that are not needed or inappropriate for the local context can hinder rather than help humanitarian operations. Aid organisations such as the Caritas network are geared up to provide emergency bulk supplies quickly. Wherever possible and viable, supplies are also sourced locally to support local businesses and rebuilding economies.
A cash donation to a recognised appeal is the best way to support disaster relief – to help agencies buy whatever is needed most. Visit the New Zealand NGO Disaster Relief Forum for more details.
