The Association has a Tax Deductible Relief Fund and it has been opened to accept monetary donations which will be used to assist farmers and people in regional communities in difficult circumstances due to the drought. These funds will be channelled through local churches in the affected regions to allow those churches to assist people in need in their communities.
We are accepting cash rather than in-kind donations as this allows the funds to be best targeted where needed and spent in local communities. The emphasis will tend to be on the support of personal and family living needs, empowering recipients to focus more of their own economic resources on wider needs such as buying feed etc, as they think best.
We recognise too that a number of organisations are seeking to assist farmers, and we want to target our support through local churches, to make the most difference on the ground.
Tax deductible receipts will be issued by email for each donation.
