As far as fundraising appeals and requests go, this is the only one where we, as an organisation will contact you directly to ask for your help – we appreciate that there are a lot of asks put on our donors, supporters and members, and we do not want to inundate you with requests. So, our hope is that come tax time, you will think of us and donate to the appeal.
Our tax appeal is focused on a different aspect of our fundraising each year, whether it be research, youth programs or a one-off project we are needing to fundraise for, each equally as important as the other.
Our last two appeals have supported the important area of research. Each year we donate to the Diabetes Australia Research Program, which funds grants on a national level. We are also supporting a PhD Candidate at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research | University of Tasmania, who’s research is focused on Diabetic Macular Edema: Genetics and Treatment Response.
If you would like to be put on our mailing list to receive our yearly Tax Appeal request, please send and email to Ange Headlam, Fundraising and Marketing Coordinator.
