Host a Fundraiser

Host a plant-based meal or event while supporting Doctors For Nutrition!

Plant-iful Plates for a Purpose is designed to bring friends, family, and colleagues together over a whole food plant-based meal while raising money for Doctors For Nutrition.

It’s very easy to do! You simply host a plant-based meal or workplace lunch, morning or afternoon tea, and in return your guests bring along a donation!

The benefits are threefold! You’ll enjoy a healthy meal with great company, spread awareness within your network on just how tasty whole food plant-based cooking is, and you’ll support Doctors For Nutrition with vital funds to help us continue advocating for this health-promoting and lifesaving way of eating.

Collecting donations on behalf of Doctors For Nutrition

Doctors For Nutrition is a registered health promotion charity in Australia with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status and is recognised as a Donee Organisation within New Zealand. This means that donations over AUD $2 and NZD $5 are tax-deductible to Australian and New Zealand tax-payers respectively.

To make your fundraiser easier we have outlined a few ways you can collect donations from your guests, and how you can transfer these to Doctors For Nutrition.

  1. Ask your guests to bring along a cash donation, or share your bank details for your guests to deposit their donation into. After your fundraiser, deposit any cash donations into your bank account, tally up donations collected, and then make your donation to Doctors For Nutrition using the payment options at doctorsfornutrition.org/support.
  2. Set up a GoFundMe campaign to share with your guests. This is a great option for workplace fundraisers, as you can print off a QR code to display next to your plant-iful plate in the tea room for your colleagues who prefer cashless transactions to easily contribute.
  3. Set up a Facebook event – invite your friends, families and colleagues and collect donations at the same time!
