What is face-to-face fundraising?
Face-to-face fundraising enables meaningful change for charities and allows some of the most important work in New Zealand and across the world to be done.
How does this happen?
It provides individuals with a trusted way to contribute financially to New Zealand charities, allowing them to carry out vital services for local communities across New Zealand and the world while working to solve some of the greatest social, environmental, and global issues.
Face-to-face fundraising is one of the most personal forms of fundraising and is when a fundraiser talks directly to a member of the public about making a regular donation to support a charity.
Face-to-face fundraising allows some of the most important work in New Zealand and the world to be done. It facilitates funds to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of millions of people, animals and the environment worldwide.
All charities carrying out face-to-face fundraising should be a member of the PFRA and are committed to following the strict code of conduct.
