Community Fundraising

separator-image

Become a partner in possibility.

Holding your own community fundraising activity or event is a fun and rewarding way to make a real difference to the lives of those living with disability.

All funds raised are carefully matched to identified needs through programs such as the Wishing Tree, with every dollar playing a vital role in our ability to enhance the quality of life for Rocky Bay customers.

Becoming a community fundraiser is easy and gives you the freedom to raise funds your way. Whether you want to host a movie night, fundraising party, or tackle something a bit more challenging like the HBF Run for a Reason or a long distance bike ride, the choice is yours.

Community Fundraising can be undertaken as an individual or in a team. Why not get a group of like-minded friends together to plan and implement a fun, social and rewarding fundraising activity?

Rocky Bay can support you throughout this process to ensure your community fundraising activity is a success, with social media promotion, ‘meet and greets’ and tours of Rocky Bay facilities.

You will need to notify Rocky Bay of your intention to fundraise before undertaking any fundraising activity. Please note that all community fundraising activities are subject to rules and regulations and must abide by state fundraising laws.

Containers for Change

WA’s new drink container deposit scheme Containers for Change is here – and Rocky Bay are proud to be a registered donation point for the recycling program!

Did you know WA uses more than 1.3 billion eligible drink containers each year? That’s enough to line a path from Perth to Broome! We can all do our bit, and magnify our social impact, by donating your container refund (10c for every container you collect) to Rocky Bay.

The scheme pays cash for exchanged eligible c​ontainers and people can choose to ‘donate’ their 10 cents per container to Rocky Bay!

How does Containers for Change work?

Eligible containers are returned to a Refund Point directly for a 10 cent refund, or to a Donation Point run by not-for-profit organisations.

How to support Rocky Bay:
  • Collect eligible containers, rinse and remove the lids
  • Drop off the clean containers to one of our collection points at our Duncraig, Ascot, Mosman Park, Cockburn or Mandurah hubs or;
  • Use Rocky Bay’s scheme ID (C10286148) at your local Refund Point – the donation will be credited to Rocky Bay

Click here to find your nearest​ Refund Point.

Please note!

Only eligible containers are accepted by the scheme. You can access the Eligible Container Checker here.

Containers Rocky Bay receive are donated to us and the refund will be credited to Rocky Bay.

What containers are eligible for a refund?

Most aluminium, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard containers between 150ml and 3L are eligible. They must also:

  • Have contained a beverage not excluded from the scheme (e.g. cordials and plain milk, and glass bottles that contained wine/spirits are not included in the scheme and are not eligible for refund)
  • Display the refund mark – most containers will already have a refund mark for SA and NT and are eligible
  • Be an approved container (as some containers are made from non-recyclable materials)

Why do we need this scheme?

The scheme aims to reduce litter and landfill, create jobs, increase recycling and provide opportunities for social enterprise for community organisations – like Rocky Bay!

Drink containers make up 44% of litter in WA, even though they are made from easily recyclable material. Containers for Change encourages people to collect and return these containers.​​
