What’s your fundraising approach?

Once you have your group member number, you'll need to decide on the fundraising approach that best suits you.


If you have the space, you can choose to become a donation point. This lets people drop their 10¢ containers off at your location, so you can return them and collect the refund for your group.

Become a donation point


If you're hosting a community event, it is a great opportunity to collect extra 10¢ containers. 
Before the event, chat with your local refund point to determine what collection infrastructure and other support you’ll need.

Collect at event


Share your group’s member number, so when your supporters take their 10¢ containers to a refund point, they can choose to donate their refund directly to you.
The refund point will process their refund to your bank account by using your group’s member number.

Donate your refund

Your Group's Captain

Before you start fundraising you’ll need to sign your organisation up for a group member number.

To do this, you'll need to connect an individual member number account, so we know who to contact if we need to. This individual account will become your group's captain — but don't worry — once you're logged in, you can change your captain at any time.
When you are setup, your captain can then add teammates to your group's account, making it easy for everyone to track your fundraising efforts.
