raize the roof is a charity founded by local young Canberrans passionate about improving the lives of children who are ‘less lucky’ than most. Powered by inspiration, innovation and dedication, the raize the roof team along with the Canberra community will assist local children who are suffering from illness and also children of the world who are orphaned due to disease or circumstance.
With the assistance of fundraising, donations and our amazing volunteers, the raize the roof team will build the raize the roof Charity House in Canberra or Queanbeyan with a goal of generating a profit over $500,000 once the house is auctioned.
Half of the proceeds from the house will be donated to the Starlight Children Foundation to support seriously ill children in the ACT and surrounding NSW region.
The other half of the proceeds will go towards supporting SOS Children’s Villages, Botswana to help improve the children villages and its family strengthening program.
Should proceeds reach beyond the estimated $500,000, additional monies will be donated back to charities that ‘support kids a little less lucky’.
raize the roof believes that communities can make a difference both locally and globally.
A core value of our organisation is that we aim to boost our local community both economically and morally. Local businesses will be helping with the construction of the house, and local businesses will be sponsoring and funding our projects. Local volunteers will be helping out at our charity events, and the Canberra community will benefit from the construction of the house.
The house is being built in Bonner in Canberra, ACT. After the auction of the house, half of the proceeds will be donated to Starlight Foundation. The remaining proceeds will be used to support SOS Children’s Villages, Botswana to support kids ‘a little less lucky’ in Botswana.
No contribution is too small to make a large difference for a special child. If you have skills or funds you would like to contribute towards the construction of the house, or wish to make a financial donation, please give generously and help us to raize the roof!
