Please help us run our vital programs, with your donation doubled before 7 March!

There's just one week until the Hands Up for Canberra Giving Day! Please support us with a donation and help us to raise $8k!

The Giving Day is on Wednesday 6 March, and it's 48 hours to give where you live. Over the 48-hour period, every $1 you donate will become $2 thanks to Hands Across Canberra for the first $2,500 we fundraise, then Aldermane will match up to another $1,500, so $4k will become $8k!

Join us on 6 March for badminton for a cause!

Two badminton courts will be set up in our Sports hall at the Belconnen Community Centre, where you can drop in to play badminton from 10am to 4pm for a $5 donation. This will go towards our fundraising for the Canberra Day Appeal.

Whether you’re an experienced player or new to the game, this is your chance to have a great time for a great cause. Please BYO racket, or there will be some available on the day.

By donating to the Canberra Day Appeal, you will support some of our vital annual projects, such as:

  • new and upgraded community facilities for cooking, theatre productions and small business markets
  • our annual giving tree appeal to ensure everyone has something to feel festive about over the holiday season
  • the 10/10 project, where we give back to our community by providing free ‘backyard blitz’ style yard and garden clean-ups for up to 10 vulnerable households who, due to their life circumstances, find it challenging to manage the condition of their yards.

Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of our community members.

  • $5 buys a ‘social coffee’ for a local who needs a warm drink.
  • $12 gives an older person a lift to get their groceries, attend an appointment or connect with others.
  • $50 gives a young person a safe place to have a meal with activities that help them explore their identity.
  • $200 strengthens a family with programs that grow connections and develop safe and secure environments.

We can only meet our goals with generous donations from the individuals and businesses in our community. Please help us reach our goal of raising $8,000 by 7 March.
