Together we can make a difference

Make a Donation and Create a Smile 

It’s so easy to help create a smile for a child, young person or family in need, whether it’s a Christmas present for someone who has never had a gift before, clothes for the homeless, or a cash donation for CAFS to use where it’s needed most. We also appreciate any in-kind donations like a ticket to the movies or a fun day out.

With the diversity of programs and services at CAFS, there is bound to be something that you would like support. For more information please contact Fiona Hart on 03 5337 1624 or email.

Make a Bequest: A Lifelong Gift

A child can live through you and you can continue to live through them by planning your legacy. Making a bequest or leaving a gift in your will to a charity that you hold dear to your heart is one of the greatest legacies you can make. A bequest will transform your will into one of the most powerful vehicles for change in the community, with little or no impact on your lifestyle today.

For more information about including CAFS in your will, please contact Fiona Hart on 03 5337 1624 or email.
