FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the Colour Sisterhood?
The Colour Sisterhood is a growing movement of everyday women who desire to make a difference and make the world a better place. The Colour Sisterhood places value upon humanity and is a movement in which every woman can find an important level of partnership. Join us by supporting a Sisterhood project, praying with the Sisterhood Fight Club, or just bringing change in practical ways in your everyday to make the world a better place. See the Sisterhood Story page for more info.
What am I subscribing to?

What organisations does the Colour Sisterhood partner with?
We are honoured to partner with some incredible organisations world who are making a difference for children, sisters and nations around the world. Our current partners are A21, Hillsong Africa Foundation, Preemptive Love Coalition, Vision Rescue and Watoto. Find out more about the projects on our Sisterhood Response page.
What is the 500Project?
The 500Project was an initiative launched in 2012 that was all about the difference that $500 could make for someone else. The 500 Project supported a wide range of projects, motivated by the simple reality that 500 Rand / $ / £ / € can make a significant difference! We currently have a set of projects supporting Children, Sisters, and Nations. You can find them on our Sisterhood Response page.
What is a “Sisterhood Tin”?
The Sisterhood Tin is a tool that Colour conference delegates have received or purchased in the past. Unfortunately the tin is no longer being made available. We encourage you to get creative in finding various ways to engage those in your world about issues and initiatives that you care about.
I have a Sisterhood Tin full of cash, how do I donate the funds?
Thank you so much for filling your tin and raising valuable funds for Sisterhood projects! The next step is to count the money you’ve collected, bank it, and donate the amount raised by credit card online here.
If you were fundraising for a 500project that is no longer available, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I want to fundraise, what should I do?
PLEASE NOTE: The Colour Sisterhood Foundation does not endorse individuals or groups to fundraise on its behalf.
If you wish to fundraise for a cause you would be doing this as an individual and then choosing to make a donation to the Colour Sisterhood. There are so many ways to raise funds, from setting up an online donation page to hosting an event. Whatever it is, we’re cheering you on and would love to hear about it!
If you engage with others who would like to give to the Colour Sisterhood and would like a receipt, they can give directly online.
Can I use Colour Sisterhood branding?
Sorry, the Colour Sisterhood name and logo are not permitted to be used on any promotional material without prior approval. All promotional material with our name or logo on it must be emailed to us at email@example.com for approval prior to printing or distribution.
How do I make a donation?
The easiest way to give is online with your credit card here. Once the transfer has been processed you will automatically receive a tax receipt.
Where does my donation go?
100% of funds given are passed on to our Partners. There are no administration costs taken out of your donation. If you do not specify a particular project, the donation will be allocated according to greatest need.
PLEASE NOTE: if a project funding limit is reached or a project is completed, we reserve the right to transfer any excess to another Sisterhood project.
Is my giving tax-deductible?
AUSTRALIA: Donations over $2 are tax deductible for Australian taxpayers.
USA: All USA donations are tax deductible.
I know about a great organisation, would the Colour Sisterhood like to be involved?
The Colour Sisterhood is unable to partner with every great organisation and so we have long term existing partners that we have built relationship and accountability with. We encourage you to be mindful of your local church vision and be sure to graciously submit and share your heart with those in leadership in your life. We believe we should see the Colour Sisterhood as an ‘above and beyond’ endeavour that has the capacity to reach out and build bridges into our unchurched communities and ultimately be a blessing.
I have a story to share, how do I send it to you?
