We launched our 2022 Tax Appeal on 25th May, and we've already achieved ALL of our intended Appeal Goal amounts thanks to your generosity! This is an incredible outcome and we are so thankful!
If you are still wanting to donate this tax time, we would love to reach our overarching goal of $25,000 to run our South Coast Rugby Program in its entirety. There are only a few weeks left of our appeal, help us reach this goal so that the program can be completely funded!
Thank you for supporting Marymead.
Tax Appeal 2022
Can you believe it's tax time already? Did you know, donations made before 30th June, in any amount above $2, are considered tax deductible and can raise the value of your tax return?
This year, our Tax Appeal focuses on FOUR important areas of impact across our services ensuring the best outcomes for the young people and families we work with. This means that you get to choose where you would like your donation to go from the options below.
1. GRANDPARENT'S GROUP – APPEAL GOAL $2,500
Grandparent’s Group provides support, education and social connection for people who are preparing to be or who are the primary carer for their grandchild/ren aged 0–18 years. Marymead’s Grandparent’s Group sessions are free and onsite at Marymead. This tax time we’d love your support which would then see this group meet in the community to enjoy activities, for example having cake and coffee on occasion.
2. GIFT CARDS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE – APPEAL GOAL $2,500
Marymead are often short on suitable Christmas presents for teenagers in foster care. This tax time you can help us raise money to purchase gift- cards for young people ahead of Christmas. We’re hoping to purchase a number of $30 vouchers which would see us better placed toward the end of the year.
3. SOUTH COAST RUGBY PROGRAM – APPEAL GOAL $5,000
Marymead is establishing a South Coast rugby, community development program. A commitment to regular sport will assist the physical, social, health and wellbeing of vulnerable children living in this rural area.
Overall Program Goal - $25,000
4. SOCIAL INCLUSION – APPEAL GOAL $10,000
Skills Development and Community Engagement
Marymead have been very fortunate in being able to offer various services to individuals for FREE. Due to the ever-changing funding landscape, a small fee will be required for some services from July 1, 2022. This tax time, we’re asking for your donation to ensure we do not need to turn back those people who cannot afford it.
Simply select one of the four ways to support children and families from the drop down menu when donating.
Thank you for considering supporting Marymead this tax time.
