Fundraising at stations

At Metro, we are committed to devoting time and energy to supporting the communities and those in need who call our great city of Melbourne home.

We support a wide range of not-for-profit organisations in a variety of ways including key partnerships with the Salvation Army and RSL Victoria, plus we work with dozens of other hard-working charities who do amazing work across a range of causes. We are happy to assist the community bring our stations to life and to support key social issues that impact our customers.

When it comes to fundraising, we need to strike a balance between a healthy level of support and keeping our stations operating as efficiently as possible, especially during busy periods. Therefore it’s important that anyone wishing to fundraise at a station must seek approval and gain a permit prior to running the activity.

Please note any political campaigns, petitions or lobbying (for anything other charitable donations) cannot be accommodated at Metro Stations.

If your charity is using paid volunteers as part of a fully budgeted fundraising program, please contact JCDecaux on 03 9676 2033.

If your charity is using non-paid volunteers to collect as a one-off annual event on the railway network, you can apply to fundraise through Metro. Whilst the CBD station fundraising calendar for this year has been finalised, you are welcome to apply for fundraising at Metro suburban stations outside the CBD area. If you wish to apply, please download and complete the fundraising application form and email it to community@metrotrains.com.au at least four weeks prior to your preferred fundraising date.
