Join the Coffee Cup Challenge

A small sacrifice can make a big difference

Each year congregations across Victoria and Tasmania host Pancake Day events to raise vital funds to support people in our communities experiencing crisis, vulnerability and disadvantage.

This year we're adding an extra dimension to Pancake Day fundraising activities and inviting congregations to join us in the Coffee Cup Challenge.

From International Coffee Day on Thursday 1 October 2020 until Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday) on Tuesday 16 February 2021, participants are asked to put aside the cost of a cup of coffee each week.

By making a small sacrifice regularly, you can make a big difference for people in need. 

On Pancake Day (or around that date), we encourage your congregation to come together to celebrate with pancakes or a morning tea.

Each coffee cup donation is placed into a Coffee Cup Challenge collection. When you register, you will receive information on how participants can access a tax deductible receipt.

All funds raised from the Coffee Cup Challenge will support people experiencing crisis, vulnerability and disadvantage. 

For further information, contact our team on 1800 668 426 or  [email protected].
