Thirty charities around Australia set to benefit from a unique dollar-for-dollar fundraising campaign to help them cope with the huge financial impacts of the COVID pandemic.
Dubbed Double Donation Day, the idea is the brainchild of the Beyond Bank Australia Foundation, the charitable arm of the Bank, which works closely with not-for-profit organisations around the nation to ensure that they have the support they need to grow and prosper.
Commencing on Tuesday, 29 September 2020, each charity will be given its own 24-hour timeslot in which to encourage supporters to donate a tax-deductible amount that will then be matched by Beyond Bank, up to the value of $5,000 per charity.
“This year has been challenging for everyone and the charity sector has been hit particularly hard, especially at a time when local communities need their services more than ever,” said Mr Shane Farley, National Manager Community Development and Sustainability, Beyond Bank Australia.
“All of the charities involved provide real frontline support, delivering help quickly and effectively to those who need it the most.”
