Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to advise MWIA about the fundraiser, or can I directly donate the proceeds after?
As directed by the laws of fundraising, all fundraising activities should be approved and authorised by the nominated charity prior to raising funds. To ensure that the proposed fundraiser meets all the legal and ethical requirements we encourage you to contact us.
Please note that MWIA reserves the right to refuse fundraising activities that are not aligned with our values or goals.
Can I use the MWIA logo for my fundraising event and promote it on social media?
Yes, you can contact us here to receive the official logo that can be used to promote the event. MWIA can also provide other resources such as project information, banners and photographs to help your fundraising initiatives, contact us to register your fundraiser and receive MWIA resources.
We encourage you to promote your events on different social platforms, however, we advise you to do so in a manner that is respectful and complements our values. Our team would always be available to assist you in your efforts and will provide all help possible to make your event memorable.
Please note any events using our logo or any other social media posts must be approved by our team prior to use.
Can I raise funds for a particular project or country?
You can find detailed information about the different projects that MWIA supports on our website. We would love to hear from you if you can raise funds for any of our current projects in different countries, however, we do encourage you to make a ‘general’ donation that can be allocated to any project. This helps us respond ‘where the need is greatest’ and help more people. Get in touch today to learn more about general donation funds.
How can I send the donations to MWIA?
We accept donations in cash, cheque or via bank transfers. Contact us today to find out more and receive the details.
How do I know that my donations have reached?
Once received, it can take us two weeks to process your donation. We try and process them as soon as possible and send you an acknowledgment by way of a thank you letter and receipt.
Please note that any donations received through our form on the website will be processed immediately and you will receive an automated receipt in a few minutes.
Are donations made to MWIA at my event tax-deductible?
For a donation to be tax-deductible, it should be above $2 and must be a genuine gift – you cannot receive any benefit from the donation. Instances where a donor receives benefits from the donations such as raffle tickets, items or food cannot be claimed as tax-deductible gifts. To learn more contact us today or visit www.acnc.gov.au.
