National Stem Cell Foundation of Australia

The National Stem Cell foundation of Australia (NSCFA) was established in mid-2011 as the follow-on organisation from the Australian Stem Cell Centre. It is a public company limited by guarantee (ABN: 84 152 713 098) that has been endorsed by the ATO as a charitable body with deductible gift recipient status.

Its mission is to promote the study and use of stem cells in the prevention or control of disease in human beings and to enhance public education in this field.
Why was the NSCFA set up?
The NSCFA was established by the Australian Stem Cell Centre to carry on the work that the Centre started. When the Centre had reached the end of its Government funding cycle, it was essential the money raised continued to be directed towards stem cell research and public education. The NSCFA was set up to continue to fund the development of stem cell technology, and increase public awareness.
Our aims are to:
  1. Provide resources for the Australian public on stem cell technology and regenerative medicine including its risks, achievements, benefits and overall technical progress.
  2. Pursue cures for, as yet untreatable diseases, using stem cell technology and regenerative medicine. This is reached by supporting research activities in these areas.
We achieve these aims by pursuing charitable purposes only, and using donations received to promote these activities.

Donkey Shelter Inc. was founded by Dr. May Dodd to help orphaned, abandoned, suffering and mistreated donkeys.

 opened in August 1997, and is located on 28 acres in Diamond Creek, which is approximately 20 kilometres north of Melbourne. The land on which the Shelter is located is privately owned by May, and is provided by her at no cost to the Shelter.

Donkey Shelter is a non-profit, charitable organisation that receives no government funding, although from the 1st of July 2006 donations are now tax deductible. We rely totally on public donations, donkey sponsorship, fundraising events and the help of volunteers to continue the work.

Our Mission

  • Love and care for neglected, unwanted and abused donkeys
  • Assist people with physical, mental and intellectual handicaps through the calming, gentle influence of 'donkey therapy'
  • Enable the contribution of donkeys to the Australian community to be better appreciated and enjoyed



Donkeys may be taken in by the Shelter for a number of reasons:-

  • They are rescued from situations of neglect and cruelty
  • They are surrendered by owners who are no longer able to care for them
  • They are bought at stockyards to prevent their being sold for slaughter for petmeat

As soon as they reach the Shelter, the donkeys are nursed back to health and rehabilitated if necessary.

When they have recovered, donkeys whose health and temperament allow it will be located to carer homes. Old donkeys, those with ongoing health problems, and those with an unsuitable temperament, will remain at the Shelter. Some donkeys are suitable to join the fundraising team, and these will also remain at the Shelter. All funds raised are used solely for the welfare of the donkeys.

Donkey Shelter Inc. does not sell or breed donkeys. The only donkeys born at the Shelter are those whose mothers were already pregnant when they arrived here.

Eden Monaro Cancer Support Group

Assisting families who have a member undergoing treatment for cancer, and find themselves in a financially difficult situation.

There are many reasons why financial difficulty occurs, eg;

There are many reasons why financial difficulty occurs, eg;

(1) The patient is the bread winner & has used all holiday, sickness & long service pay (where long service has accumulated).

(2) The bread winner becomes the major carer.

(3) In the case of a child, both parents are in Sydney with their child, and while having to pay for everyday living costs there, the bills don’t stop coming for essential services, rent etc; back home.

(4) Single parent who may have to give up work to care for their child.

(5) Single parent still caring for a family, becomes the patient.

Sickness benefits do not go a long way when you are paying rent or a mortgage as well as essential services and trying to cover medical, food, petrol and any other every day living expenses.

The members of the Cancer Support Group work hard to raise funds so we are able to help these patients, and we appreciate the assistance given to us by those non members who help on the day of certain fundraisers.

The ACT Eden Monaro Cancer Support Group appreciates all donations, which help us help these families who are suffering through no fault of their own. Without this most important help, we could not survive and this would be a major disaster to those families needing our support.

Wildlife Asia - The Orangutan Project


The primary objective of Wildlife Asia is the protection and enhancement of the natural habitat of orangutans, gibbons, Asian rhinos, bears and other Asian wildlife.
Wildlife Asia is a not for profit association raising funds in Australia to increase conservation contribution, capacity and efficiency for wildlife conservation.
Wildlife Asia and its field programs are active, throughout South East Asia in:
  • habitat protection (in particular tropical rainforest),
  • wildlife conservation (in particular Orangutan, Rhino, Bear and Gibbon), and
  • sustainable development for local communities.
Wildlife Asia -The Australian Orangutan Project
How will the funds be used?
The orangutan’s rainforest habitat is disappearing at an unprecedented rate. 80% of the orangutan’s rainforests has been decimated in the past 20 years. Much of what remains is degraded by drought, forest fires and illegal logging. This destruction is also inflicting a massive amount of suffering on a species that is 97% genetically identical to humans, intelligent as a 5 to 6 year old child and is self-aware. Tragically, extinction in the wild is likely for both Sumatran and Bornean orangutans if we do not take immediate action. 
Donations are important to The Orangutan Project because the funds help to provide ongoing support for a wide range of projects, including habitat protection, rehabilitation projects and orphan care centres.
For example:
  • Funded a community campaign to save the Tripa Swampin Aceh which consists of 61,803 hectares and has amongthe highest densities of orangutans anywhere in the world.
  • Started the Wildlife Projection Units in Sumatra Indonesia topatrol 250,000 hectares. 
  • Achieved the first successful prosecution against injuring an orangutan. 
Key Areas of Expenditure
The organization provides technical and financial assistance directly to conservation projects and orangutan rescue and rehabilitation centres. This includes much needed resources for the day-to-day care needs, the reintroduction of orphaned orangutans and the locating and securing of release sites. Presently there are over 2,000 orphaned orangutans living in care centres in Borneo and Sumatra.
Are donations tax deductible? 
Donations of $2.00 or more go to The Orangutan Project Conservation Fund and are tax deductible.

Reading out of Poverty

Reading Out of Poverty is a non-profit organisation that supports children and families in the pre-literacy and early learning stage of development. Established in Melbourne, with the support of volunteers and community partners we provide early literacy programs that aim to promote a love for and habit of reading. Children need to engage in reading activities from birth so that they develop the literacy skills they need to succeed at school. Children who do not have this critical foundation will quickly fall behind and lose confidence in the classroom. For many of these children, they may never catch up which directly impacts life outcomes.
We focus on children who are at high risk of developing poor literacy and numeracy skills and low-level educational outcomes from an early age including refugee, migrant and indigenous children.
Our organisation establishes unique partnerships with parents and carers, pre-schools, community hubs and centres, health and welfare centres, migrant groups, government housing estates and Indigenous Cooperatives to develop essential early literacy and language skills in children from disadvantaged backgrounds where illiteracy is common. We are committed to seeing cultural change in attitudes towards reading in early childhood.
Reading out of Poverty is focused on developing the early literacy skills of Melbourne’s most disadvantaged children including those from low socioeconomic backgrounds, new migrant families, refugee and Indigenous backgrounds. Our primary purpose is to provide a strong foundation for children to learn to read so that they can succeed in education, reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world.
