Stopping sexual assault and domestic violence - Full Stop.

Fundraise for us

Get involved and fundraise to support the Full Stop Foundation!

The Full Stop Foundation is about stopping sexual assault and domestic violence – Full Stop

We are seeking to raise funds to answer all calls to the 1800 RESPECT counselling service and to research and pilot new programs to end the cycle of domestic violence and sexual abuse

Every 10 minutes, our counsellors answer a call from someone somewhere in Australia about sexual assault or domestic violence.

Help us to answer every call.

Why is your fundraising necessary?

The Full Stop Foundation is seeking support to expand trauma counselling services for those who have experienced sexual assault and domestic violence and to change the attitudes and behaviours that allow violence against women and children to occur.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I need some inspiration - what kinds of events or activities could I organise to raise funds?
    The sky's (almost!) the limit when it comes to dreaming up fundraising initiatives. We have some ideas for individuals, groups and workplaces here. Remember it's important to consider any regulations that may apply, and to stick within the fundraising legislation for your state too.

  • When fundraising, I know I need to comply with legislation and regulations in my state/territory. How can I find out what these are?
    The Funding Centre at Our Community have a comprehensive list of legislation and regulations that may be relevant for your event or activity. See: http://www.fundingcentre.com.au/help/fundraising-legislation
  • How can I talk to others about the need for funding?

    We can send you some materials to help, including facts and figures.

    You can also tell people that tragically, the number of women who have been killed in violent circumstances is at an all time high. One-in-three Australian women will experience physical violence at some point in their lifetime and a woman is hospitalised every three hours in this country due to domestic violence. All too often children bear witness to the brutality, with life-long consequences.

    Putting a stop to violence begins with supporting those in need. That’s why R&DVSA operate front line counselling services via 1800RESPECT.

    The Full Stop Foundation believes that it is possible to end the cycle of domestic violence and sexual abuse and are working hard to achieve that vision. But it is a massive task and we desperately need your help. Please help to answer every call.

    Get involved, speak up on the issue and donate now. Your support can make a real difference.
