Donations

You will be truly fulfilled when you do the impossible for someone else

By our nature, Australians are a very giving lot. We look after each other and share a sense of natural kinship that is recognised and admired globally. As a grass-roots reflection of our caring for those in need, many Australians now embrace the personal satisfaction and genuine community benefit that comes from donating to important causes.

Donations to OAK Tasmania enable us to offer unique programs, premier services and special opportunities to so many Tasmanians with disabilities. And Tasmania has the equal highest rate of disability in Australia (more than 117,000 people), we know we have a big job to do… and we know that we cannot do it alone.

How much do I give and where does it go?

Endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and a Public Benevolent Institution (PBI), OAK Tasmania is ideal for those who feel inspired to have a genuine and lasting impact on Tasmanians with disabilities.

For as little as $10, you can contribute in ways that really make a difference Just to give you an idea…

  • $10 (the price of a coffee and a muffin) could buy a photo album for our unique scrap-booking program.
  • $50 (a meal out with a friend) could fund several entrance fees to museum exhibits, day passes at animal sanctuaries, boat rides and tourist attractions. This same gift would buy equipment for our popular personal jewellery making program.
  • $500 could fund a full special skills tutoring program, buy a wheelchair, hire a facility for a new initiative or even purchase an iPad for OAK Technology and Learning.
  • $1000 could buy a digital stills or video camera for the OAK photography program, new chairs to help support our clients with mobility challenges or a full year’s supply of craft items.

There’s no limit to how your gift may impact not only OAK Tasmania, but also the very real dreams and lives of those in our care. Our donors truly are the difference that makes the difference and we are grateful for every dollar that comes into our care.
