Fundraise for us

Project Jonah Round the Bays

We need you!

No matter your age, use your talents to help raise vital funds to protect whales and dolphins. Whether it’s a bake-off, organised swim or shaving off your hair, there are so many ways to fundraise! The most important thing is to have fun, knowing your efforts will make a huge difference.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Get active: Have friends or co-workers sponsor your participation in a 10k walk/run/bike ride (find listings for upcoming events here)
  • Eat well: Host a vegetarian barbeque or picnic in your neighbourhood park (with gold coin donation for participants)
  • Embrace your inner daredevil: Get friends to sponsor you bungee jumping or skydiving (even better if done in-costume)
  • Have a movie night: Host a home screening of a film that features marine mammals (we love Blue Planet, Ocean Giants, and Big Miracle)
  • Shed some weight: Have friends sponsor each kilogram you lose this summer
  • Test your knowledge: Host a trivia night
  • Get your bake on: Challenge your office/class/peers to a creative bake off and auction off your creations to determine the winner
  • Wear your onesie: Get the office or your class to dress up in theme with a donation asked to participate
  • Get creative: Love painting art? Or making jewellery? create your own arts and crafts and sell them to raise funds.
  • Celebration with a difference: Instead of gifts to celebrate your special day (birthday, wedding etc.) ask your friends to make a donation to help protect New Zealand's marine mammals instead. Register your occasion on The Good Registry to get started.

Let us know what you’re planning. We’re happy to help out wherever possible to guarantee your event is a hit.

TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL FUNDRAISING

Set your goal:

Once you’ve decided what your fundraiser will be, whether it’s a bake sale or a personal challenge, you need to decide how much money you aim to raise. Aim high when setting your fundraising target. The higher the target, the more people will give! Once you’ve worked this out, set out your plan and your timeline.

Spread the word!:

Once you’ve decided what and when your fundraiser will be, tell everyone about it! The more people you tell, the quicker you’ll reach your goal.

You can promote your fundraiser on Facebook and other social media.

Your local newspaper may be interested in hearing about your efforts too. Send them an email and let them know what you’re doing and why.

Email your contacts:

Often the most effective fundraising is a simple email to all your work colleagues, family and friends. Just tell people what you’re doing and why.

Don’t forget to always acknowledge and thank your supporters for their donations.

Note: Please make sure you have secured permission from any companies and/or individuals involved with your event (supermarket staff, venue managers etc.) to ensure a successful fundraiser!
