How to promote your group

As the first groups started to mobilise, they talked to us about ways that they could find group members, fundraise and seek donations. Many of them created great materials to use and they’ve kindly shared them with us for this toolkit.

Please do let us know what you think and share anything you’ve created!

Media & promotions toolkit

Media tools the CRISP has attracted a lot of coverage that’s been very useful for groups to help with fundraising and getting support.

We’ve written some media tips, and a CRSA group provided this draft article that you can tailor and submit to your local paper, who can also use the photos on the right. Please let us know about upcoming media, so that we can notify the Department of Home Affairs.

Introduce your group while most people are keen to support groups, it’s important to clearly outline who you are and what you are doing.

You can use our templates to create a note for your community noticeboard or email people in your neighbourhood who may be interested in joining your group or providing support.

We’ve also created a group introduction document that groups have used when introducing themselves to local businesses.

Don’t forget, if you fundraise via the Shout for Good platform, all donations over $2 are tax deductible.  If you are a group looking to fundraise, contact Sophie at info@refugeesponsorship.org.au to learn more about using this tool.

Using Canva

Canva is a free, online tool that people who aren’t designers and don’t have any special skills can use to create images and documents that look properly designed. The first time you use Canva, you’ll need to create an account – it’s free and you just need to use your email address. The first page of our templates outlines how to make edits and download your finished design.

 

The CRISP is funded by the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs.
