    Fundraising provides a wonderful opportunity for people to give back, by providing vital support for others, and developing a strong sense of community within schools, community groups and workplaces. 

    Monies raised for Micah Projects can be provided in general, where we will allocate funds where needed to achieve the greatest impact, or for specific projects, such as furnishing a home for a family moving from homelessness into a home.

    Our programs and services are developed using the best available evidence-based research. We ensure every dollar received attains maximum positive impact towards our mission.

    The Micah Projects school partnerships program provides an opportunity for students to learn more about the life experiences and challenges faced by people experiencing adversity. Students feel pride and joy when they contribute to community without the expectation of reward.

    Dedicated Micah Projects staff are willing to present age-appropriate information sessions to student groups, to highlight the positive impact students can have on the lives of others.

    We are proud of the highly successful school partnerships we have established. Schools involved in the Micah Projects school partnership program have raised funds and donated goods to support vital programs, including community meals, welcome home packs, Christmas hampers, personal hygiene packs and the provision of emergency accommodation.
