Upcoming Activities in Newtown
Fundraising : Get the Basics!
Free public talk
Tuesday 19 September
6:30 PM - 8 PM
Wondering how to fundraise for your cause? Keen to learn from someone in the know? Then this is the session for you. Katie will cover the basics of fundraising in this interactive presentation, looking at the fundraising context in NZ. We’ll identify all the potential ways to fundraise, and the pros and cons of each. Katie will discuss which areas of fundraising typically bring in the most income, get the best return on investment, and how long it may take to see a return. This will help you avoid some of the common pitfalls for beginner fundraisers, and think about where you can get the most impact. Finally, we’ll run through how you can upskill in fundraising going forward.

Our Town Newtown - Questionnaire
The Our Town Newtown Project Questionnaire is now live! This questionnaire is a community-wide introduction to the Our Town Newtown Project. This project is a collaboration between Wellington City Council and Newtown locals and is providing Newtown with an opportunity to collectively develop ideas and identify how to best spend Wellington City Council allocated funds on the development of WCC community facilities in Newtown.
We have opened a pop-up project hub in the shop site at 199 Riddiford St, next door to St Vincent de Paul, you can go here to see how progress is coming along. There will be public talks and activities in the near future - watch this space!
Right now we're keen to hear your initial thoughts via this questionnaire. We're keen to understand where we are starting from: what Newtown is, what Newtown has, what Newtown needs, and how Newtown does things. The questionnaire is designed to collect information about this.
The online version of the questionnaire is here. Please fill this in and then share wildly! If you or anyone you know would rather be interviewed, instead of filling in a form, please let us know by emailing us or popping into the pop up shop at 199 Riddiford St.
Please send us a message with any questions or suggestions: email@example.com
