Manager’s Important Announcement:

Thank you.

 

Introduction

The LifeLink Foundation was established by Archbishop Hickey in 1998.

The Foundation’s goal is to raise a capital reserve of $5 million which will be prudently and ethically invested ‘to return in perpetuity’ an annual source of operational funding for LifeLink agencies.

On completion, the Foundation will provide LifeLink agencies a guaranteed level of funding and help them continue a tradition of caring for people in need within the Western Australian Community.

How does a Foundation Appeal work?

In much the same way as any fundraising campaign. There are many reasons why you may choose to make a gift to the LifeLink Foundation.

  • You may prefer to make a significant gift which provides ongoing benefit, rather than contributing towards recurrent funding needs of our agencies.
  • You may choose to pledge an annual gift for a specified term
  • You may wish to make a bequest in your Will
  • Or to provide a gift in memory of a loved one.

Importantly, under Canon (Church) Law and Civil Law, funds raised by the Foundation may only be used for its original stated purpose, to support only the LifeLink agencies, which will benefit people in need within our community.

This Foundation’s financial accounts are independently audited and reported to the West Australian Charitable Collections Commission (WACCC) each year.

Is my gift tax deductible?

Yes. Any donation over $2 made to the LifeLink Foundation is tax deductible and official receipts will be provided for all gifts received.

Is there a minimum donation level?

Any gift, no matter how large or small, will be gratefully received and most certainly appreciated! As a practical guide, the LifeLink Foundation has received gifts from $500 up to $500,000.

There have also been pledged donations of $1,000-$20,000 provided each year for a period of 3 years.
