Major Gifts

ChildFund works with individual philanthropists, trusts, foundations and private ancillary funds (PAFs), who donate $10,000 or more, to deliver programs that address the needs of the most vulnerable children and communities.

From building schools and providing education resources to building the capacity of health systems in the Pacific, Asia, Africa and Latin America, we are able to tailor a support program that achieves your philanthropic goals.

All such gift projects can be named in recognition of the donor, their family, or for someone that they wish to remember or honour – for example a parent or an inspiring role model. Regular progress reports provide a strong sense of enjoyment and achievement now, as well as the assurance that you are creating lasting change for children.

We’d love to hear from you,
if you are an individual philanthropist or looking to make a big donation as a family we would love to hear from you. You can contact us at:

Frequently asked questions

Leaving a gift in your Will to ChildFund Australia is one of the most thoughtful ways to support the community through a gift for the future. Your gift shows forethought, planning and community commitment. If you let us know that you have left ChildFund a bequest, it allows us to properly prepare to receive it, and to plan for the future.

If you decide to make a bequest to ChildFund Australia, please let us know so we can express our appreciation, record your planned gift, keep you up to date with ChildFund’s work and involve you and your family in relevant special events throughout the year.

If you have already drafted your Will, you can make an amendment by adding a codicil to include a bequest. We recommend you seek independent professional advice to ensure that your wishes are expressed correctly.

ChildFund is honoured to have the trust and support of wonderful friends who have confirmed their intentions to make bequests to ensure every child has a childhood. Every bequest, no matter how small or large, makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.

Yes, providing that your bequest brings no material or tangible benefits to you under the rules specified by the Australian Taxation Office www.ato.gov.au.

ChildFund is registered as a Deductible Gift Recipient. Monetary or other gifts to ChildFund are generally allowable for deductions for Australian income tax purposes. Donors should, however, seek independent advice from their legal and/or taxation advisor. There are no administrative charges deducted from gifts.

Bequests can be made without a designated purpose so that they assist with the ChildFund’ priorities at the time. This allows greater flexibility and a way for ChildFund to meet future needs.

General or unrestricted bequests are those which allow ChildFund to apply the funds to areas of greatest need at the time the gift is received. Unrestricted bequests are especially valuable, as they provide flexibility so that the organisation can respond to changing needs and priorities.

It is often beneficial for a benefactor to have a personal discussion with ChildFund’s Bequest Executive about a bequest intention to ensure that, in due course, ChildFund will be able to apply the bequest according to the benefactor’s wishes.
