Raise Money for Doxa

We need people like you

Money raised through individual fundraising will have an incredible effect on the lives of the disadvantaged young people who participate in our programs. There are heaps of ways to raise money for Doxa.

We recommend that you keep it fun, so we’ve put together a few ideas that give you an idea of what works.

Breakfast / lunch / dinner / movie night

This is great for corporate audiences. You can create a theme for the event, get really creative with specific fundraising measures, and it’s a great opportunity for people to broaden their professional and social networks.

Hold a sale

This might be unwanted items that you’re thinking of throwing out, or it could be putting your skills to use and selling something you’ve created or can supply. This is a great way of getting colleagues involved too, where you can pool your resources and add value to your activity!

Healthy competition

A fun run, golf day, or ride-to-work day are all great ways of getting people involved, plus it’s great for physical and mental health!

Use crowdfunding

If your fundraising activity relies on small individual donations, using a crowdfunding platform is a great way to increase your effectiveness. Share your campaign with your social media networks (and we’ll do the same with ours!).

Partner with Doxa

Our organisation is rapidly expanding to deliver more programs, and each year we support more and more young people experiencing disadvantage. We are now one of but a few Victorian organisations that provide programs spanning key developmental and life cycle stages of a young person.

And across our three program portfolios, we support over 8,000 disadvantaged young Victorians each year. These young people are smart and motivated but will have come from challenging life circumstances.

Here are just a few examples of how a corporate partner can be involved with us:

Networking evening

Part of a Cadet’s personal development journey is mastering the fine art of networking.

Corporate partners are invited each year to a live networking session with Cadets, who receive professional training in preparation for the event. Our partners gain great access to some of Victoria’s best and brightest young minds, many of whom will be on the verge of transitioning into the workforce.

Become a Mentor

Part of a Cadet’s personal development journey is mastering the fine art of networking.

Employees of our Cadetship sponsors have access to rewarding and enriching mentor opportunities.

Our mentors reflect very positively on this experience, and the impact they have on the lives of Cadets can remain strong well beyond the duration of the program.
