fundraisingMy Friends’ Place is not government funded and therefore relies on the kindness and generosity of our community along with our own fundraising efforts.

We receive many requests from wonderful members of the public, sporting clubs, hobby groups and workplaces to organise fundraising on our behalf. So far, we have had sausage sizzles, motorcycle group rides, donations of commissions and takings from market stalls and home parties, yoga classes, #R4Respect day at Griffith University Logan Campus, the Hand Up Donation Drive, Versace Teddy Bear Tree Christmas Fundraiser, Car Boot Sale Fundraiser and the IKEA Community Grant – a $5,000 to make over an area in one of our properties!

Fundraising is a wonderful way of doing something you love and raising money for us at the same time.
