Monique and her mum Alison have been fundraising with the Australian Sports Foundation’s for just over 12 months. She uses the platform to fundraise for her travel costs both interstate and internationally.
Alison needed to raise $2,000 towards travel costs for her daughter to compete at the Singapore Nationals in March 2019 on her journey for qualification to the Junior World Championships in Figure Skating.
Alison took a very transparent and honest approach to fundraising setting out the exact costings for her daughter’s trip and seeking donations from her networks and local businesses that they support in their community. The tax deductibility was a key driver, especially when approaching businesses.
Monique’s ASF fundraising webpage was also shared on Facebook to generate interest and donations which formed part of their donor landscape amongst a few larger gifts from companies.
Monique was able to fundraise enough to attend Nationals in Singapore and after sitting 6th place after the first day, was able to make ground and take out the title and blitz the field with an overall 1st place for her and Australia!
