* This donation is tax deductible
Why are some donations tax deductible and others not?
Gifts or sponsorship to support the relief work of MAF International (ABN 32 004 260 860) in Australia, made through the MAF Aid Fund (ABN 49 498 842 455), are tax deductible.
Not tax deductible
Tax deductibility on donations is only allowable by the Australian Tax Office in respect of approved relief and development activities. For this reason, tax deductibility is not available for sponsorship of staff working for ACMA (Australian Centre for Mission Aviation), CRMF, MAF Canada, MAF USA and MAF Australia (Sydney), nor for support of evangelistic outreach and other non-qualifying activities. Donations to CRMF are treated as 'non-development' and do not qualify for tax deductibility.
Ed spent his early childhood in Western Australia where his parents served with the United Aborigines Mission. Later his family moved to Kerang (Victoria) where he finished his schooling, followed by university studies and employment as a Professional Engineer in Melbourne.
Liz grew up in Melbourne and became a Registered Nurse. She began theological study in 1992. Ed and Liz met at Camberwell Baptist Church and were married in 1994.
