The ARMS ACTA Disaster Relief Charitable Gift.
Funding work amongst those caught up in disasters is never easy as the needs of disaster victims are so great. For many, being involved in either a natural or man-made disaster represents the worst experience of their lives!
Australian Mercy has been sending emergency relief teams into disasters for many years. Such teams have been to places such as Iraq, the Philippines, Aceh (Tsunami), Pakistan (Earthquake) and East Timor (Refugee Emergency Relief), Haiti, Samoa (Tsunami) and Indonesia. Through the work of Australian Mercy many thousands of people have been helped and many hundreds of lives have been saved.
Australian Mercy is always looking for creative ways in which we can fund our emergency relief programs, particularly the work of RescueNet which deploys personnel into the most difficult of situations. Our fundraising just to keep RescueNet equipped is always ongoing.
A few years ago, we received a donation which was given to help meet some of the ongoing costs of our disaster responses. After careful consideration and consultation with the donor, the Australian Mercy Board decided to use these funds to set up a permanent trust from which our disaster relief work could benefit.
Consequently, Australian Mercy has established the ACTA – ARMS Disaster Relief Charitable Gift, a fully tax-deductible charitable trust that will grow and develop and continue to benefit our disaster relief work.
This trust was originally set up through ANZ Trustees, but is now managed by Equity Trustees.
Our hope for this trust is that over time it will grow and become a major provider of funds that will enable Australian Mercy to help the many thousands of people who are caught up in disasters every year; but in order to do this we need your help.
The initial seed for the trust was a deposit of $40,000; this has now grown to $60,000 and is continuing to grow! In order to continue to grow this trust we are raising awareness of it and seeking public and corporate support.
Both individuals and companies will receive a tax deduction for donations made to the ACTA – ARMS Disaster Relief Charitable Gift. Regular or one-off tax deductible donations are welcome.
Donations can be given via our website here
or straight to;
575 Bourke St
Melbourne Vic 3001
Tell Equity Trustees that you want to direct the fund to the ACTA ARMS Disaster Relief Charitable Gift quoting this reference code CH002155 together with an address where your tax deductible receipt can be sent.
The ACTA- ARMS Disaster Relief Charitable Gift will provide an income stream for Australian Mercy work amongst those who are victims of disasters.
Your donation to the ACTA – ARMS Disaster Relief Charitable Gift will have ongoing effects for not only the next few years, but for generations to come and will help the victims of disasters to receive the help they so desperately need.
Australian Mercy is about giving hope to people who are caught up in disasters; your support of the ACTA – ARMS Disaster Relief Charitable Gift will help us to exactly that.
