Fundraise for Mates4Mates 

At Mates4Mates, we know that the impacts of service are difficult and can significantly affect someone’s health and wellbeing, as well as those around them. But with your fundraising efforts, you can help to make sure veterans and their families can access the support they need.  

With more than half a million veterans estimated to be living in Australia, we understand the needs of those who have served and what it means to be part of the Defence community.    

The support of the Defence community, fundraisers, donors and corporate partners is critical to our work and helps us meet the ever-increasing need for our services.   

Why your support matters

By fundraising for Mates4Mates, you are helping veterans and family members access support from a team experienced in helping veterans navigate their recovery. 

Fundraisers and other donations allow us to continue delivering clinical services and mateship to the Australian veteran community, directly benefitting their mental, physical and social health in a safe and supportive environment.

Fundraising ideas

From physically active community events to selling baked goods, fundraising is something everyone can get involved in. Here are some simple and effective ways that you can begin your fundraising journey with Mates4Mates: 

  • A community sporting event: whether you’re a part of a local football team or signing up for a triathlon, challenging yourself while making a difference is highly rewarding! Rally your supporters and pass around the donation bucket at your next event. 
  • Use your hobby: if you’re handy in the kitchen, or handy with a paint brush, utilising your skills and passions is a wholesome and effective way to raise funds for the veteran community. 
  • Join a team of fundraisers: fundraising can be a group activity and finding a group of like-minded people to help spread the word and boost donations is a great way to get involved. Sign up for a Mates4Mates fundraising effort with your family or friends and help us to make an impact.
