Fundraising and Awareness Activities

Organising community fundraising and awareness activities is a rewarding way for schools, clubs, community groups and individuals to raise awareness of depression and suicide prevention and support the vital work of Black Dog Ride.

If you'd like to organise a specific fundraising event or a community awareness activity to help with State Ride 2016 fundraising, download the Community Activity Kit by clicking the link below:

Community Activity Kit [PDF]

The Community Activity Kit contains everything you need to know to get started including activity suggestions, guidelines and information about your responsibilities as a fundraiser, donor receipt forms plus the Activity Application Form.

Once you've completed the Community Activity Kit, email it to and the Black Dog Ride Team will be in touch. If you need assistance in completing the form, please get in touch with us, we're happy to help.

The fundraising aim of Black Dog Ride's State Rides 2016 is to continue our funding of Lifeline's Online Crisis Support chat service and Mental Health First Aid's teen MHFA program in Australian Secondary Schools.

Fundraising Tips

It is not compulsory to fundraise if you're participating in a Black Dog Ride, however most Black Dog Riders do so and enjoy it, appreciating the life saving value in the conversations around suicide prevention which begin by rider's fundraising efforts. To help you maximise your fundraising we've provided some start up fundraising tips below, which may be useful to you if this is your first time fundraising.

Please note that net funds raised on each state/territory platform will be consolidated after the last state ride and be given to Lifeline Australia and MHFA Australia. However, we've developed the individual state platforms for riders because we know you're a competitive bunch of bikers and friendly interstate competition all helps the cause!


Want to support the rides but don't want to create a fundraising platform? No problems, you can donate to the cause right here:

Remember to pick your state or territory of choice for funds to be allocated to their fundraising total. Although as mentioned above, all funds will ultimately be consolidated for a ride grand total.

All donations $2 and over are tax deductible and you will be emailed a receipt for taxation purposes as soon as the donation is processed.

Thank you for supporting Black Dog Ride's national suicide prevention initiatives!
