Why Donate to Young Parents Support Network?

Becauseā€¦

"Giving is the antidote to emptiness. It is the meaning we seek, the cure for soul wounds, the spark of enlightenment. Generosity is the traction of spiritual evolution: We give, we grow." ~Danielle LaPorte

 

And becauseā€¦

  • You decide where your money goes (for baby supplies for new mothers, food for hungry families, small grants for Future Planning participants, or any other program area);

  • We are a locally run and operated charity, serving families in your community;

  • We provide effective and cost-effective service to Victoria`s most vulnerable families;

  • Outcomes from our programs are excellent, in both the short and long term;

  • As a small, non-profit organization, our administrative costs are low and we intend to keep it that way;

  • Every donation enables us to leverage even more funding from foundations and businesses, thereby increasing our reach;

  • As a registered charity we can issue you a tax receipt;

 

What can you achieve?

  • Your $50 donation buys healthy food for a hungry child at weekly drop-in programs for one year (food brings families out to programs which ensure that vulnerable children are resourced and visible!)

  • Your $100 donation buys a kit of infant supplies for a new young mother living in poverty.

  • Your $240 donation buys emergency food vouchers for 12 hungry families.

  • Your $500 donation buys Outreach Support to connect and resource an isolated, struggling family for one year.
