Donate to a bright future
We have been able to achieve a lot in 12 years thanks to the support of our generous donors and partners, but we need your help to keep growing. Big or small, we value your donation as it ensures we can continue to make a positive and meaningful difference in the lives of girls living in remote and regional Australia.
Donations over $2 are tax-deductible and there are a number of ways you can donate to g-oz.
2021 Giving Circles Campaign – 50 for their Future
Our 7th Giving Circles campaign was launched on May 27, during National Reconciliation Week and on the day that the Uluru Statement from the Heart was awarded the Sydney Peace Prize. The statement invites everyone to walk together in a movement of the Australian people for a better future. There is a strong focus on children and young people as the hope for the future and Girls from Oz aims to support our girls to flourish as they walk in two worlds. We fully support the vision for Australia that will see a future for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children “based on justice and self-determination”.
Since 2015, our Giving Circles program has raised in excess of $300,000 and we’re eternally grateful to all supporters who help us to make important educational opportunities available to Girls from Oz participants. This year’s campaign is focussed on funding a full program year in Kowanyama (on the Cape York Peninsula) our fourth and newest community. The $50,000 we raise will pay for four weeks of community program delivery and the opportunity for some of our newest participants to be involved in the 2021 Queensland Travel Program that will see girls spend a life changing week in Brisbane in November.
