How do I use my online fundraising page?

Your online fundraising page is unique to you! Your friends and family can go to your page and donate directly to you and at the same time receive a tax-deductible receipt. Share your fundraising page through social media and email to friends when you invite them to your BARBECURE. If they can’t make the big day, they can still support your BARBECURE by making a tax-deductible donation.

At the end of your event, use your fundraising page to deposit the cash you received on the day! Just remember, your first donation is so important; it sets the trend for donations to come. If you set the bar high, your friends and family are likely to follow your lead.

When can I host my BARBECURE?

We are asking Aussies around the nation to host their BARBECURE this summer.

However, if you want to hold your BARBECURE outside of the summer season, go for it! We are lucky to live in a country that’s BBQ weather all year long!

If your BARBECURE needs public liability, unfortunately we are not able to offer you ours. We suggest you look to hold your BBQ in a different location.

Anyone who donates over $2 and who receives nothing in return.

If you are depositing a collection of all money raised at your BARBECURE, you are not entitled to a lump sum, personal tax-deductible receipt.
