Commonly Asked Questions

Can Vinnies provide a speaker for my Sleepout?

We may be able to assist your event with a speaker. To enquire about a speaking engagement please email us at fundraising@svdpwa.org.au

Who is responsible for the legal compliance of the event?

The event host is solely responsible for the legal compliance and safety of the event. More information can be found in the Terms and Conditions.

How private are your fundraising pages?

To help protect children’s online presence we have made all School Sleepout fundraising pages private. Participants can still share a link or QR code to their page directly with their supporters.

Please note that our Community Sleepout and Fundraise Your Way pages are public and have an option that allows the user to set their page to private.

If the majority of your participants are under 18 we recommend setting up a School Sleepout page.

Can our offline fundraising be added to our online total?

Yes! Once we receive the bank deposit from your fundraising we can add the offline amount to your fundraising page total.

How do donors receive tax deductible receipts?

When people make donations online they will automatically receive a tax-deductible receipt. If cash donors would like a receipt please record their details on the Donation Summary Form. Once we receive their donation and the form we will issue the donor a receipt.

What if we don't want to do a Sleepout but we still want to fundraise?

There are plenty of other ways to fundraise. You may host a morning tea or a casual clothes day and donate the money raised by making a direct deposit into our account. More information can be found in the Fundraise Your Way Kit
