Giving comes in all shapes and forms.
We want to highlight some of the contributions our amazing community of supporters have generously provided to us as in-kind giving, in other words donating time and goods.
What are in-kind donations?
In-kind donations may be physical stuff like furniture, clothes, necessities (food, toiletries), school supplies, equipment and the like or consist of donations in the form of professional expertise, skills and services such as legal services or property refurbishment, facility management and the like.
Community working bees make a big, practical difference to our work and to our young people – we have some amazing – we mean AMAZING – partners and organisations helping out.
Property Industry Foundation (PIF)
We have been working with PIF for a number of years now and they have had a significant impact on our ability to provide homes for young people.
The short version is that PIF connects us with other organisations all the time to help alleviate child and youth homelessness. Please read more about the impact that PIF have had on Burdekin here and please follow their most recent property renovation for us with partners SMLXL Projects and Bridge Housing here.
With generosity from King Living, houses for our young people immediately feel like homes. Support from King Living provides increased safety and comfort, easing young people into the transition. We cannot thank them enough for their continued support. Take a look at how they have been helping us here.
Our relationship with Bunnings goes way back and when they say they are committed to meaningful and active participation in the community they mean it. We are constantly amazed by their volunteers, their enthusiasm and kindness. Take a look at where Bunnings have supported our work here.
So much goes into the running of our little organisation, it takes charitable giving from individuals and businesses who are committed to making a positive impact in their community. It takes Impact Days such as Working Bees, it takes volunteers, partnerships, expertise and altruism. We have managed to create a network of those who see a need in our community and an ambition to make a difference. Take a look at more of our supporters - from BINGO Bins to Charterhall, Norton Rose Fulbright, Johnson Wintery and Slate and more - we couldn't do it without you!
