Why we Fundraise
The old saying that 'money makes the world go around' is true however a misconception about fundraising is that it is only about money. Whilst money is needed for the work of an organisation, there are all sorts of other commodities which are just as needed – clothing, toiletries, food, cleaning materials, stationery, vehicles, petrol and much more - therefore it is needed to think broadly about the development of resources.
GCF is in the fortunate position to have a dedicated Fundraising & Resource Development Department. The challenges and expectations for funding and resources grow greater and greater each year for each of our programs who rely on receiving sustainable funding. Each new financial year requires ever more sophisticated and ambitious fund-raising strategies to sustain and grow the programs and organization. Therefore, fundraising & resource development on both a small and large scale is most certainly a priority item of our organizational strategy and agenda.
Help a GCF child
With your help, we can give them the tools to start building on their future goals and dreams. We can give them HOPE for a better life!
We need your help
Through your generous monthly gift, you contribute towards a child's food, therapeutic, educational and medical costs.
Help us help them
These babies need everything when they arrive, apart from the special care they receive here. We need your assistance in taking care of them, the way they deserve.
As we do not have a Psychologist on site, extra costs are incurred when a child is taken to one.
Thank you for helping us
By giving a monthly donation, you play an important role in these children's lives.
Every child is valued
Children with special needs are the most vulnerable group in society. These children require extra care, staff and equipment and we believe they deserve the best possible care.
Leave a Legacy
Gift in Memory
Donating in Memory of a loved one is a lasting and rewarding way to make a tribute to a loved one’s life. This heartfelt gift will assist us to plan and implement long-term programs that will have a lasting impact in making our Children Safe and Secure. In-Memory Donations can be made at any time, from a once off donation to an annual occurrence to commemorate a loved one’s birthday or wedding anniversary. Your donation can remain anonymous, if you wish it to remain a private affair.
If you are arranging a funeral service, you may want to encourage friends and relatives to make an ‘In Memory’ donation to Give a Child a Family. A gift ‘In Memory’ sustains our work in fighting poverty, supporting child protection and community strengthening, as well as helping families in need to build a brighter future for themselves and their children.
Gifts in Lieu of Flowers
If you would like family and friends to give a donation to GCF in lieu of flowers you may want to include this request in the obituary notice.
