You might have come across our face-to-face fundraisers on the street, in a shopping centre or perhaps at your front door. Médecins Sans Frontières Australia’s face-to-face fundraisers work in states and cities across Australia and provide a vital link between our organisation and the general public. Their job is to recruit donors who are committed to our mission and able to support us with a long-term regular donation.
At Médecins Sans Frontières Australia, 100% of our funds come from private sources. Face-to-face fundraising is currently the best way we have to build our community of long-term regular giving supporters, who in turn allow our field teams to respond rapidly to emergencies, go where the need is greatest and remain independent.
Face-to-face fundraising is often misconstrued in the media. Here, we answer some of the most common questions we receive about our face-to-face program.
