The Australian Mutuals Foundation (AMF) has stepped forward as a matched giving partner for Barnardos Australia. Over the next 24 hours, every dollar donated to Barnardos Australia will be doubled through the Foundation's pledge to match donations dollar-for-dollar. This initiative not only amplifies the impact of individual contributions, but also showcases the power of collaboration between philanthropic organisations and the community.
Barnardos Australia, a leading child protection charity, has long been at the forefront of helping vulnerable children and families across the nation. With programs focused on child welfare, family support, and education, Barnardos aims to break the cycle of disadvantage and create a brighter future for children in need.
As a collective of mutual financial institutions, the AMF's mission is to create a meaningful difference by partnering with charitable causes and fostering a culture of giving. By matching every donation received over the next 24 hours, the AMF provides an incredible opportunity for individuals to maximise the impact of their generosity. For every dollar contributed, the Foundation's pledge ensures that two dollars will directly support Barnardos vital programs.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to double your impact this tax time and help keep more children safe from abuse and neglect.
Every 13 minutes, a child is found to have been the victim of neglect or abuse.^ When you donate, for today only, your generosity will go twice as far to provide safety, care and hope of a brighter future for abused or neglected children.
Sadly, it’s a known fact that during times of economic hardship, the rate of child abuse and neglect increases.^^ With the current cost-of-living crisis piling pressure onto already struggling families, the risk to children has never been more extreme.
However much you can afford, every dollar counts.
