Support Mercy Community

If you would like to take a more active role in supporting Mercy Community to deliver services in areas of need, we welcome your involvement.

Join our regular giving programme

Your regular donation enables us to confidentially plan ahead to provide a diverse range of support options for vulnerable children, young people, family, the aged and people with disabilities.

Regular giving is easy to set up and flexible. You can donate weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly or annually through your financial institution or credit card. We will issue you with a tax statement at the end of the financial year.

Fundraise

We are very grateful to the many people who offer their time and energy supporting Mercy Community by hosting various charity events and organising fundraising activities.

Fundraising is a rewarding way for you to get involved in the community and we are always excited to hear about fundraising opportunities that will support the most disadvantaged in our community.

Some ideas include:

  • getting friends and family to support you for a fun run or other challenge (Could you go 24 hours without electronics?
  • organising a treat stall, sausage sizzle or car wash at your school, church or community group, or on election days
  • hosting a morning tea or ‘dress down’ gold coin donation day at your workplace.

Donate

Your special day can be even more special when you ask friends and family to make a donation to Mercy Community instead of receiving gifts.

By choosing Mercy Community as the beneficiary of your donations in lieu of receiving gifts, you will be making a difference in lives of vulnerable children, young people, families, the aged and people with disabilities.

Whether it’s your birthday, wedding, anniversary or even a christening, celebration giving is a great way to celebrate your special occasion and support the most disadvantaged and vulnerable in our community.

Make a bequest

A will represents an individuals last wishes and intentions. After providing for loved ones, many people also choose to leave a gift in their Will for charities close to their heart.

Sadly, there is a growing need for the support programs Mercy Community provides and bequests will enable us to continue our vital work with the most disadvantaged in our community. We value and appreciate all gifts and bequests – large and small.

If you decide to make a bequest to Mercy Community, please advise your legal representative to ensure that the bequest is made ‘To Mercy Community (SEQ) Ltd for its charitable works’. Also, so that we may confidently plan ahead to provide our diverse range of support services for vulnerable children, young people and families, the aged, people with disabilities, newly arrived migrants and refugees, please take a moment to let us know that you have made a bequest.

Give in memory

Giving in memory is a very personal way for you to honor the memory of a loved one.

There are various ways you can help remember them and celebrate their life whilst supporting the work of Mercy Community. You can make a donation, set up a regular gift in memory or make donation in lieu of flowers at a funeral.

If this is something you would like to consider, we try to make the process as simple as possible for you.

Volunteer

Volunteers are a valued part of our Mercy Community. They fulfil a vital role in the important work we do in the community.

Our volunteers contribute positively to the lives of those with whom we engage by:

  • participating in Mercy Community events and in our programs
  • fulfilling carer and ‘friendship’ roles within our Aged Care homes and NDIS programmes
  • supporting our multicultural community at the Romero Centre.
