Goods and In-kind Donations

Partnerships may include cross-brand promotion, employee volunteering, workplace giving and /or donating to the Wakakirri Inspiration Fund.

School Fundraising Ideas

  • Host a screening of your school’s previous Wakakirri Story-Dances and collect gold coin donations
  • Add a Waka dress up day to your calendar
  • Cook a Pancakes Breakfast or hold a Bake Sale at school
  • Set up a crowdfunding campaign so that Grandparents, friends and other community members can support your production
  • Approach local businesses and offer advertising space in your school newsletter or an upcoming event program in exchange for sponsoring your students

Transparent Reporting

In 2019, our Inspiration Fund (formerly the Wakakirri Donation Program) assisted 25 schools across Australia. Schools were given a subsidy of between $500 and $1500 to offset the cost of participating in Wakakirri or bringing one of our Artist In Residence Facilitators into their classrooms to support teachers and students as they develop their Story-Dance. More than 1300 students benefited from this program thanks to the generosity of donors like you.
