Fundraising for Meli is a great way to make a difference.


Whether it’s a fun run, marathon or bike race, team morning tea, dress-up day or movie night, fundraising for Meli is a great way to make a difference.

With your support, in collaboration with your family, friends and colleagues, a fundraiser for Meli will change the lives of children, families and individuals in our community who are currently doing it tough.

Here’s how you can fundraise for us

Take on a challenge

Whether you are entering a fun run, giving up a guilty pleasure for a month, riding a scooter from Geelong to Melbourne, a bike ride down the Great Ocean Road or competing in a regatta in Geelong’s Corio Bay, you can ask your friends and family to support your endeavours… and raise funds for Meli too.

Fundraise at work

You can inspire your colleagues by holding a team event with impact. Whether it’s a casual dress day, a team fun-run, or a fundraising event, there are many ways your business and staff members can make a positive contribution to the community they live, and work in.

Fundraise at school

Schools are at the heart of our local community and there are lots of ways your school can help change the lives of families and individuals less fortunate in your community. It's also a wonderful way to remind children about the importance of kindness.

Impact of fundraising

Close to 100 female senior members of the Queens Park Golf Club hosted a series of golf related activities over the course of a year to fundraise $1,250. All of which has been donated to Meli.

Lady President and Lady Captain, Fiona Johnstone and Carole Doran, led the club fundraising efforts in 2021 which involved a series of golf competitions on and off the greens. When not raising funds through traditional competitions the club relied on raffles, trivia nights and tin rattlers to reach their fundraising target of $1,000.

Fiona mentioned that Meli was selected to receive the donation as the club believed that “the two organisations shared similar values by both creating a place of connection for local families doing it tough during COVID”.

Carole shared that “Meli’s family services supporting women and children resonated with many of the clubs grandparents. We understand the importance of organisations alike Meli and wanted to play an active part in ensuring Meli’s sustainability.”

A donation to Meli will see us moving one step further towards achieving our goal of supporting people and strengthening communities.
