You have Gifts for Good in your basket.
Last time you were here, you were looking to help vulnerable children and families. Your support can save and change lives.
As COVID-19 continues to unfold in the world’s poorest places, ChildFund’s $32million global appeal is providing essential support to the children and families who are most vulnerable during this ongoing crisis.
Your donation will go to where it has the greatest impact. Here’s how your donation can help:
Vulnerable children and families are caught in this deadly crisis. They need our help, and every minute counts.Please Donate
The global health, social and economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic cannot be underestimated.
The virus knows no borders: we are a daily witness to increasing rates of infection, school and business closures, strict social isolation orders, and rising unemployment across the world.
In many countries, health systems have been overwhelmed with rising cases and an ongoing struggle to source vital medical equipment.
No family is immune to the repercussions of this health crisis, including our thousands of Australian supporters. We want you to know that our thoughts are with you during these immensely difficult times.
At ChildFund, we are also deeply concerned about the impact this pandemic will have on the children and families with whom we work; communities who are already vulnerable due to poverty.
– People in remote and rural areas may not have access to nearby health facilities if they contract the virus. Children already have weakened immune systems due to malnutrition and diseases like tuberculosis, making them less able to fight a new infection.
– Lockdowns mean children are unable to attend school. Vocational training programs for youth are on hold. We know that access to education and learning opportunities is vital for young people if they are to break the cycle of disadvantage.
– A reduction in income can mean that families are forced to cut back on spending in essential areas such as education, food, and healthcare for their children. Families risk sliding back into extreme poverty.
ChildFund’s long-term development programs will be crucial in helping affected communities once the immediate danger of the virus has passed.
We are already working in close partnership with families who are struggling to provide the basic needs for their children. Now, our programs have been adapted to face this new challenge.
As you know, every preventive action helps, and every person can make a difference to stop the spread of this virus. We are all in this together: every child, every adult, every community in our global neighbourhood. Thank you for your donation.

If you’re filing your tax return for the first time, have never claimed donations or donated at all, you’re probably wanting to know more about how you can claim donations to charity on your taxes. We’ve answered some of the most important questions about tax deductible donations below.
Tax deductible donations are about giving back, to get back. Donating to ChildFund Australia will help children in urgent need of support. You’ll be helping the most vulnerable children across South East Asia and Africa, and you yourself will be able to receive a greater refund on your tax return.
You can submit any tax deductible donation over $2 as part of your tax return.
You can only claim for donations which are monetary gifts, given without the promise of something in return. Raffle tickets, charity chocolates, events and other donations of this kind, are not tax deductible.
At ChildFund, all regular giving donations over $2 are tax deductible including child sponsorship, community sponsorship and donations to appeals. A few donation categories are not tax deductible, for example, birthday gifts to your sponsored child and are not included on your annual tax receipt.
Your gifts will be used where the need is greatest to support ChildFund’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic in developing communities around the world. In the unlikely event that funds raised exceed the amount needed for this appeal, the additional funds will be used to support the work of ChildFund Australia in the Asia-Pacific region.
