We are grateful to receive support through the Emigrant Support Programme of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Ireland towards our core administration costs each year. This covers about 75% of our annual running costs, however, we still depend on the support of the Irish Community in Sydney. All assistance given to clients in need such as crisis accommodation, food vouchers, utility bills and counselling support, is financed through our annual fundraising efforts and the generosity of our donors and sponsors.
We would love to hear from you if you are interested in organising a fundraiser in your workplace, community or sports club. We have fundraising packages available to help you get started.
Workplace giving is a program that lets you donate money on a regular basis to your chosen charity, straight from your salary. Donations are deducted before you pay tax, so most people who donate in this way see a tax benefit in their pay.
It is very simple to set up, however, your employer must have a workplace giving program in place. Any employer who has one or more staff may start a workplace giving program.
Contact us for more information on how you can support us through workplace giving.
