Raising money for Oz Harvest

With your help, at Ignite Sydney 8 we raised a fantastic amount of money for local charity Oz Harvest, who rescue food which would otherwise go to waste and distribute it to people in need.

Here’s the breakdown of fees* and funds:

Thanks again for your support for such a worthy local cause.

*Fees are charged by EventBrite for credit card processing as a percentage of every ticket sale. Whilst it’s a annoying to lose so much in processing fees, we feel that this is more than offset by the increased overall funds which we’re able to raise. Since we started selling tickets via credit card payment online, the amount raised for Oz Harvest has roughly doubled per event, even including the fees. We’d love to hear from you if you have any ideas on how we can pass more of the funds directly to Oz Harvest.
