There are currently 105,237 people in Australia who are homeless. Now, more than ever, we need people like you – supporters, champions, advocates in our community so that we can continue to provide our full continuum of care model and end youth homelessness.

What is community fundraising?

Community fundraising refers to a company, organisation or an individual holding, or participating in, a promotion, event, or sale to benefit The Burdekin Association.

We are grateful for dollars raised through community fundraisers – they help us provide programs and services to young people who are at risk or are homeless on the Northern Beaches. Because of the volume of these requests, we cannot personally participate in each proposed event but we will provide materials about The Burdekin Association work for your event.

There are typically three different types of community fundraisers: A Challenge Event; A Community Event; and/ or A Personal Campaign.

Seaforth Art Gala Dinner

All proceeds raised from the Seaforth Art Gala Dinner were very generously donated to us.

Annual Charity Golf Day

We held our first Charity Golf Day in May 2015 and haven't stopped! The event became our major annual networking event.  If you would like more information please contact Kellie Pethybridge on (02) 8976 1777 or via email we would love to see you there!

We were one of the proud beneficiaries of the Melbourne Cup Day fundraising event.

We acknowledge the Aboriginal people of the Cadigal and Gayamaygal Clans. We acknowledge the Country on which we live, work, and gather as being Aboriginal land.

We acknowledge the lands, waterways and skies that are connected to Aboriginal people. We honour them and pay our deepest respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

We respect their rightful place within our communities, and we value their ancient cultural knowledge and practices.

We deeply respect that this will always be Aboriginal land and we will honour and follow the first peoples’ values in caring for the Country and for preserving their culture.

We deeply value that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the oldest living culture in the world and we will continue to work with their peoples and communities to ensure their cultures endure and remain strong.
