To help you raise even more funds to support children in this, our Centenary Year, we’ve developed this online Centenary Activity Support Kit. You can access all of the kit materials directly from this webpage. There’s a selection of helpful resources including event ideas, fundraising tips and promotional materials you can use to plan and hold a Centenary fundraising event in your local area.
An opportunity to double the impact of your donation
This year you have a special opportunity when you donate directly to our new Centenary Endowment Fund. The fund will support innovative projects in the areas of quality education, health care and protection from harm. This special Fund will support new ideas and innovations in Australia and overseas that aim to maximise our impact on the ground.
For every $1 your branch donates to the Centenary Endowment Fund, a major donor has generously pledged to donate another $1*, immediately doubling your donation and the impact of your efforts.
Of course, you still have the option to direct your donation to wherever the need is greatest. Or, you can donate to a specific program in your state. The choice is yours.
How to use the materials
The resources are provided as PDFs you can download to print or share with others online. Simply click on the links below to download the items you want to use.
Use these special Save the Children logos on any correspondence or promotional materials you create in 2019. The logos are provided as JPEG

A series of fact sheets outlining the many programs Save the Children runs in each state of Australia and around the world.
You have three ways to donate and make a real impact; to our new Centenary Endowment Fund, where every $1* your Branch donates will be matched by a major donor, to where the need is greatest, or to a local program of your choice. Simply tick the option you would prefer in the donation form.

You're invited to join in our National Centenary Events

We hope you’ll be able to join us to learn more about the critical work Save the Children is doing in your local region and across the globe.
