Donate to Doncare



As a not-for-profit organisation, Doncare receives funding from local, State and Federal government departments to operate some of our major programs, however we rely heavily on fundraising to subsidise the running costs of these and other programs. To make a one-off donation, click the DONATE NOW button on this website to make a secure online donation. Alternatively, you can phone us on 9856 1500 to make a secure one-off or recurrent donation over the phone. Or, donate in person at Suite 4, Level 1, MC2, 687 Doncaster Road, Doncaster. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
