Give today, claim back on Wednesday

The end of financial year is fast approaching, making it a great opportunity to consider a tax deductible donation.


If you are in a position to give generously, any donation of $2 or more made before midnight tomorrow (Tuesday 30 June) - the last day of the tax tear - can be reclaimed from July 1 onwards.


What do I get for my donation?


Simply put, all money raised will go towards volunteer training, the facilitation of the initial meet-and-greet between matched buddies, or costs associated with processing the required police checks.


Here’s some we made earlier


Since returning from lockdown we have readied 14 volunteers - including Daoyu, Georgia, Ben, Rhea, Rachel, Chris and Simon (below, L - R) who graduated last Wednesday (24/6).

And this year we have facilitated 22 pairings - like that of our most recent match, Kristen and Holly (below, L - R).

Any donation received goes towards ensuring we continue to make as many matches as possible.

Please note, in order to reclaim your deductible donation, donors are required to keep hold of the automated tax receipt emailed after transaction.
