We operate solely on donations sought through fundraising, grants and sponsorship. Your donations go to purchasing necessary backpack items and shipping them to agencies.
Backpacks 4 VIC Kids is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient. Gifts over $2 to Backpacks 4 VIC Kids are tax deductible.
The estimated cost of a pack is $75 (but saves an agency or carer approximately $300). Every dollar donated is stretched to its full potential by volunteers who source quality items for the lowest prices. With your help we can make a difference to a child in need, please consider making a donation today or signing up to our monthly giving program using the buttons below. If you would like to sponsor a ME pack and be notified when your pack is dispatched to a child in need, you can do so here.
Corporate donations are most welcome, with appropriate acknowledgment being always given. We would love to chat with you about a Backpacks drive at your workplace. If you have any questions, please contact us on 0412 205 943 or via email.
