The Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission Ltd is registered with the Australian Tax Office (ATO) not only as a Deductible Gift Recipient but also as a Public Benevolent Institution. This means we have been entrusted by the ATO to bring direct support to those who need it most.
USE OF DONATIONS
We always make a concerted effort to ensure that any funding raised for a specific project is utilised on that project. In cases where the completion, modification or cancellation of a project leads to surplus funds, the balance will be utilised on similar projects wherever possible – or if no other such projects exist: for the general well being and care of the children of the Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission, India. In the case of major donations, donors will be contacted directly before reallocation of any funds.
All of our administration fees are raised independently from our regular fundraising, this means that every dollar we receive from you goes directly to support the work of the GSAM in India. No donations will ever be used for administration purposes without the direct consent of the donor themselves.
Our Board of Directors is made up of like minded individuals who have a passion for the protection and upbringing of the children of the Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission. Regular trips are made by our Board Members to India to visit the project and ensure that all funds raised by our organization are being utilized to their absolute maximum potential.
