Butterfly Fundraising is all about coming together as a community to help us continue to provide support across Australia. Butterfly appreciates your help. Join together with friends and family to support Butterfly and invite others in your community to get involved! Talk about eating disorders, destigmatise the illness, encourage people to reach out for support and raise money so that Butterfly can continue to provide treatment and recovery resources to all those affected.
Organising a community, individual, school or corporate fundraising event can help change the life of someone suffering from an eating disorder or negative body image. Butterfly’s fundraising has always been strongly supported by generous groups of people seeking to do their part to bring about positive change.

When you fundraise for Butterfly, you are bringing HOPE to those suffering from an eating disorder.
Organising a community fundraising event can help change the life of someone suffering from an eating disorder or negative body image.
There are a number of ways that your school can get involved and do good for people with negative body image and eating disorders.
Butterfly works tirelessly to provide services and support for those suffering from an eating disorder and negative body image along with their families, friends and carers. But we don’t do this alone. It is through the generous support of a number of key corporate partnerships that we are able to carry out the work that we do.
If you are hosting a fundraising event you can collect funds and then donate directly via credit card on our donation page. You can also send a cheque or credit card payment in the post.
Another great way to raise funds would be to start a fundraising page for yourself, your organisation or your community group through EVERYDAY HERO. You can set up a profile with a photo and keep a tally of how much you raise.
