Broadening the appeal of giving

Youth Focus is among a number of charities in Western Australia to have defied the downward trend in community giving by broadening its appeal through relationship building and diversifying its offering to potential donors.

The charity’s recent successes have included a strong showing in the 2017 Hawaiian Ride For Youth, held in March, which has raised an above-target $2.5 million for youth mental health services (donations ongoing).

At the core of the event’s success, according to Youth Focus chief executive Fiona Kalaf, is a multi-faceted approach to fundraising.
