Individual Fundraising

Whether you participate in a marathon, cycling challenge, swim, reading challenge, or use your wedding, birthday or anniversary, there are many ways that you can raise money for Stewart House

Why fundraise for Stewart House?

Children in the care of Stewart House attend a specific purpose school onsite for up to 10 days of their 12-day stay. The NSW Department of Education provides infrastructure and staffing support for this school. All other costs associated with the children’s stay are met from charitable donations. Children between school years 2 and 8 are invited to attend the program.

Once the children leave school for the day, they are cared for by suitably qualified supervisors overnight and at the weekend. Meals, accommodation costs, transport and entertainment expenses, and salary costs for supervisors, cooks, cleaners, laundry, and maintenance staff are all sourced from donations made to Stewart House. These costs amount to some $5 million each year.

If you are planning a major fundraising event, please contact us at for your authority to fundraise on our behalf. We may also be able to assist you with further marketing materials.

Stewart House is a registered Australian charity with DGR status. All donations over $2 are tax-deductible. Once your donation is processed, we will send you a tax receipt to the email address provided.
