Check out the commonly asked questions about The Longest Table…
The official date for The Longest Table is Saturday 18th September 2021. If you’re busy that day, no worries, you can host your Longest Table whenever suits you between now and 30th September.
You can host your Longest Table at home, your workplace, a restaurant, even online – the choice is yours!
As the host, you cover the cost of your Longest Table or alternatively, you share the cost with your friends – it’s up to you!
If being fancy is your thing (or not), your Longest Table is your time to shine in the kitchen. You can tease your friends with your menu selections on your Host Page.
So that you can immediately see the progress of your fundraising towards your target, encourage your friends to donate online via your Table page. However, we understand that some people like to give cash. Inside your Goodie Bag you’ll find a cash donation box. You have a couple of options in allocating the money to your table:
Option 1: Make individual donations for your guests
Keep the cash and make individual donations on your own host page so your donors receive their receipt. Please note the same credit card cannot be used multiple times.
Option 2: Make a lump sum donation
Make a lump sum donation to your own host page which means no individual receipts will be given, unless you complete the Tax Receipt form provided in your Goodie Bag.
Option 3: Make a bank transfer or direct deposit
To ensure we can track the funds you have banked and allocate them to your fundraising total, complete the Offline Donation form provided in your Goodie Bag – bank details are on the form. If you would like an electronic copy of the form please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Option 4: Drop into The Hospital Research Foundation office at 62 Woodville Road, Woodville SA with your completed Offline Donation form.
Donations of $2.00 or more are tax deductible. All donors will be provided with an automatic tax receipt via email on completion of an online donation. Alternatively, complete the Tax Receipt form included in your Goodie Bag and we will issue receipts for any cash donations received
Our team is here to help you every step of the way! You will have access to a dedicated host manager and be sent regular emails with reminders and tips as you beginning planning and then hold your Longest Table. You can get in touch with us at anytime via email at email@example.com, on social media or by calling our office on (08) 8244 1100.
Every dollar raised by you as a Longest Table host will go towards lifesaving cancer research through The Hospital Research Foundation.
If you are hosting your Longest Table outside of South Australia and have nominated an additional charity partner, THRF Group will grant 55% of your fundraising total at the end of the campaign to your nominated charity partner, who will direct the funds to lifesaving cancer research and patient care projects.
