How can you help us fundraise?
Have fun, raise money and help make a difference! By becoming a Community Investor or organising a fundraising event you are supporting communities and helping people build a brighter future for themselves.
Fundraising for CUFA is a great way to show your support for our work around the Asia-Pacific and to have fun and meet new people. In fact, it’s the most powerful way you can help us to support people to lift themselves out of poverty.
Last year thanks to the amazing fundraising efforts of our supporters we were able to deliver financial literacy lessons to 12,833 children in Cambodia, help grow more than 320 small businesses in Cambodia and Timor-Leste and provide technical assistance to credit unions in 8 Pacific countries.

What is Workplace Giving?
Workplace Giving gives employees the ability to make small regular tax-deductible donations to a charity by using the payroll systems in place. Some workplaces may also ‘match’ employee contributions to encourage greater workplace giving and therefore having a greater collective impact.
Workplace Giving creates a positive working environment for the employee and is a great way for a small charity organisation like CUFA to continue to create wide-reaching change across the Asia-Pacific whilst keeping overheads to a minimum.
Why give to CUFA?
Workplace giving is a win-win-win for workers, employers and for CUFA. No matter how small the amount, employees can experience the significant impact over time their contribution is making and employers can enjoy greater staff engagement and retention. CUFA is able to gain reliable, regular funds leading to even greater sustainability and efficiency.
Find out how your business could participate in Workplace Giving by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 1300 490 467
If you prefer using Good2Give to organize your workplace giving, CUFA partners with Good2Give, so you may find us there, too.
