EVERY dollar you donate really DOES make a difference.

You can change the lives of local children and families

Your gift today can truly make a difference in the lives of a local family. Down the road, around the corner, maybe even just over your fence, your life-changing donation can help ensure local families can wake up to a tomorrow that they can feel good about. 

A one-time gift

Your gift, no matter the size, makes a difference to someone's life.  $25 can provide a packet of nappies or a tin of formula for a mother and her child facing homelessness.  $50 can provide food for a family who have left their home due to domestic violence, $100 can educate someone to spot the signs of suicide ideation. Every gift is received with our grateful thanks.

Donations greater than $2 are tax deductible for Australian tax payers.

A gift to say thanks

Perhaps you, a member of your family or a dear friend have been assisted by Windermere, you'll know just how passionate we are about making a difference.  If you'd like to 'pay it forward', this is a wonderful way to help those who may be facing their greatest challenge.

Workplace Giving

Making a regular donation from your pre-tax earnings gives you even more reasons to donate. 

Not only are you supporting children and families in need, you get the tax benefit immediately and the paperwork is done for you.

Here's the difference you make:

Resilience for Life has been nothing short of wonderful for me, and enormously empowering. I am feeling so much more optimistic and confident in myself, my driving and taking care of my husband.

Prue, Program Participant - Melbourne

I understand that every child is individual with different strengths and different ways of learning, By recognising and understanding each child and what it is that they love and how best they learn, I can provide them with the best experiences that help them to reach their full potential in all developmental areas. I love doing it.

Sandra, Windermere Early Childhood Educator - Melbourne

My (Windermere) counsellor has been one of the most important supports I have had throughout this whole process. She is amazing. I now see things from a completely different perspective.

I am on the lookout now too - next time I am in a relationship, I will be able to recognise the signs of domestic violence and I won’t let myself get stuck in that sort of position again.”
