Common Questions

Funding

Mostly Australian Mercy relies on the generosity of churches, the corporate sector, small business, and the general public for the finances needed to perform its ministry.

We do receive funds from grant giving institutions. At this time Australian Mercy does not receive any AusAID funding.

What about faith?

Australian Relief & Mercy Services Ltd (Australian Mercy) is a Christian Aid and Development Organisation that seeks to reach out to the poor and the needy with the love and compassion of God.

We hope that the things we do will reflect the faith we have in Jesus and Gods compassion towards all of humanity.

Tax deductability

Australian Mercy has tax deductibility status through the Australian Tax Office for all its projects within Australia and overseas. Tax deductible funds are not used for religious activity.

Donations made by donors in the United States and Canada are also fully tax deductible.

YWAM relationship

Australian Mercy is independently constituted but is also the preferred mercy ministry arm of Youth With A Mission Australia.

We frequently utilise the international resources of YWAM to provide humanitarian relief and developmental assistance to anyone in need regardless of religion, race, gender, age or political persuasion.
