How much of the money raised will go to the cause?
The McGrath Foundation works hard to ensure as much of their supporter’s money goes directly to fund their nurses. Their last reports showed that 67.4 cents from every dollar donated goes directly to their mission.
Where can I find out more about the McGrath Foundation?
More information about the foundation can be found on the McGrath website which is https://www.mcgrathfoundation.com.au/
Do funds raised go towards funding my local McGrath Breast Care Nurse/s?
The McGrath Foundation provides funding for McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia. Each McGrath Breast Care Nurse is funded for a minimum of three years.
We work closely with all state and territory health departments, as well as nominated area health services, to determine areas of need and locations for additional McGrath Breast Care Nurses.
There are currently 193 McGrath Breast Care Nurses, however more are needed to ensure that no one goes through breast cancer without the care of a McGrath Breast Care Nurse.
There isn’t a McGrath Breast Care Nurse near me – can I raise funds to get a nurse here?
Nurses are placed based on a range of criteria and we cannot guarantee a nurse will be placed where funds are raised in support. Funds raised are distributed based on a needs assessment and are considered on the merits of each requested application.
How can we get a QR code that links to our online fundraising page?
QR codes are an easy way to organise cashless and contactless donations on your event day. When logged into your fundraising page, you will find a unique QR code under the resources tab within your dashboard!
Can I raise money outside of October?
Absolutely you can. You can host a Community Fundraising event at any time of the year, simply register via the pinkisthecolour.com website under community fundraising.
What can I do during October to fundraise?
The sky is the limit! Fundraising in October can look however you want it to. You can host a High Tea event with the support of local businesses in your town. Or, if you are involved with a local sporting club put on a Pink Round to raise funds. You could even have family and friends over for a BBQ or do a head shave.
