We are a not-for-profit community organisation. Fundraising is an integral and necessary part of what we do. Our success is purely built on our members, volunteers, grants and fundraising.
The fundraising we do throughout the year enables us to keep our membership fees low and allows us to maintain a sustainable and varied program of events and activities each year. Ultimately our fundraising efforts help us to pay for expenses such as:
printing information booklets, publications and leaflets
providing subsidised events for multiples, families and carers throughout the year
covering all expenses for the two fully-funded member events each year (our Christmas party and our Multiple Birth Awareness Week event)
purchasing and maintaining equipment and library resources
every day running expenses of T&DMBA
We aim to have a several major fundraising events throughout the year, including:
Mother’s Day Raffle
This is our main raffle of the year. We only print 200 tickets, so you receive great odds to win the $2,000 prize. Tickets are sold from Multiple Birth Awareness Week in March with the draw being conducted early May, just in time for Mother’s Day!
Bunnings Central Sausage Sizzle
Usually once a year we call upon all BBQ masters to volunteer their talents to spin sausages, sizzle onions and sauce bread for a day at the local Bunnings. The Bunnings BBQ is a fantastic fundraising opportunity to raise funds for the club. All volunteers and offers for help are much appreciated.
Each year we sell the great value Entertainment Book which is filled with hundreds of discounts for eating out, entertainment and even everyday groceries and fuel purchase. $13 from each book sold goes straight to our fundraising account. Orders for the current book or digital memberships can be made online here.
Clothes SwapOnce a year we host a Clothes Swap. This is a great option for families of growing kids to upgrade their wardrobes in an environmentally and financially sustainable way while supporting a local not-for-profit organisation.
If you would like to volunteer your time to help with one of our various programs or if you would like to find out how you can help in other ways, please contact us.
