Face to face fundraising

September 4th, 2017

Our Starlight Circle regular givers are vital to the work we do

Mary Potter Hospice Foundation is a charity that relies on the support of people like you, so we can continue to provide free care to people with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

PrintPeople who give to us regularly every month are part of our valued Starlight Circle programme. Knowing we are getting money each month gives us the confidence that we have a regular income coming in to support our work.

In order to sign up these vital donors we operate a face to face fundraising programme. At present, we are using the reputable company Appco Group NZ to fundraise for us in the Wellington community. They can be contacted directly on phone (0800) 888 123 or email info@appcogroup.co.nz if you have any concerns.

Appco Group NZ is a member of the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) of New Zealand. Members of PFRA must work within a strict regulatory framework. The PFRA works with charities and service providers to ensure quality, integrity and transparency in face to face fundraising by creating an atmosphere of public confidence and regulatory satisfaction. For more information please visit the PFRA website.

When members of the public sign up to join the Starlight Circle with our face to face fundraisers they provide personal information and bank details to allow automatic monthly donations.  All this information is kept strictly confidential.

How to identify our fundraisers

Legitimate Mary Potter Hospice face to face fundraisers will:

  • be wearing branded bibs or jackets with the Mary Potter Hospice logo on them
  • be displaying an authorised identification badge with their name, photo and unique identification number
  • never ask for, or accept, a cash donation
  • be working from an iPad and carrying Mary Potter Hospice’s Starlight Circle literature with them.

Where will you see our Fundraisers?

Our fundraisers are visiting suburbs door-to-door, and are also outside supermarkets, large retailers and shopping malls, throughout Wellington, Porirua and Kapiti.

We’d be very grateful if you would consider joining our Starlight Circle group of regular donors. Have a chat with them and they’ll tell you all about how you can make a monthly donation to Mary Potter Hospice to help us keep our services free for all Wellingtonians.

If you have questions or feedback about our fundraisers please contact our Donations Administrator on 0800 627 976 (MARYPOTTER) or email starlightcircle@marypotter.org.nz
