How we raise money

As a community based health organisation we are reliant on the generosity of community partnerships, donations and support of our events.

Cancer is expensive, especially for people who seek out natural and holistic therapies to complement their treatment. For this reason, many of Solaris Cancer Care's services are free or greatly subsidised for members to ensure they are affordable. All of our core activities are free for anyone with cancer experiencing financial hardship.

Currently, our in-house fundraising efforts contribute more than 90% of the cost of delivering the wonderful activities and services in this program. Fees for service and membership fees contribute less than 5% of the organisation’s overall income. This is why we need your help. It is through the generous contributions our supporters make to our raffles, mail campaigns and through donations that we are able to deliver our program and activities.

 

Raffles

Each year, we host three major raffles with fantastic prizes including cars, cash and shopping vouchers! Tickets are available from Solaris Cancer Care. Ticket books are available for individuals, groups, schools and businesses wishing to assist us with ticket sales. Get in touch to help with our current raffle or buy tickets.

Direct Mail Campaigns

We undertake a Tax Appeal in June and a Christmas Giving Appeal in November, where we ask our supporters to give a cash donation to support our programs.
