Face-to-face Fundraising

We currently have fundraising representatives carrying out a face-to-face fundraising campaign throughout NZ. Face-to-face Fundraising

This involves us recruiting at supermarkets and at pre-approved street sites, as well as knocking on doors to talk to people about our work and asking them to support us with a regular gift. 

This method of fundraising is one of the most effective ways to recruit new supporters and ensures that we can continue to help over 48,000 animals every year.

Face-to-face Fundraising Locations

Our fundraisers will always have identification with their name and the company they work for.

If you have any concerns about the legitimacy of a face-to-face fundraiser please call us on 09 256 7300 (Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm), and we will be able to verify the legitimacy of a fundraiser.

Why do you use this as a method of fundraising?

This method of fundraising is a very efficient and cost-effective way of generating income and attracting new supporters to SPCA New Zealand.

We receive very little government funding so regular donations are hugely important to us and vital for us to continue our work. Direct debit is also a cost-effective way to donate as it allows us to keep our administrative costs to a minimum and the length of the commitment helps us to plan ahead and budget effectively.

How do I know that the person fundraising is legitimate? Should they have ID?

All of our fundraisers wear SPCA branded clothing and carry official identification cards. They will also be carrying SPCA literature and direct debit/credit card authority forms.

Do you have permission to fundraise in my area?

Before we fundraise in any area we always get permission from the relevant local authority, the manager of privately owned premises or the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (whichever is appropriate).

Is this type of fundraising regulated?

The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) is a self-regulating body that is dedicated to ensuring high standards of quality, transparency and integrity in this type of fundraising. It regulates fundraising activities used by charities and professional fundraising organisations and enforces a Code of Practice, which aims to make certain that peoples’ experience of this type of fundraising is positive.

The SPCA closely monitors its face to face fundraising campaigns to ensure that their representatives adhere to the regulations and Codes of Practice set out by the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association.
