* 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.
We are the Purdey family working with Mission Aviation Fellowship to bring God’s love in practical ways to those in isolated areas.
Our story with MAF originated with Ian’s passion for serving God through aviation and Adele’s desire to work in cross cultural mission. Soon after being married we went to the Bible College of Victoria and our journey began.
As a family we served with MAF in Arnhem Land for seven years, living and working among the remote indigenous communities of Milingimbi, Galiwinku and Yirrkala, and the mining town of Nhulunbuy. Following God’s call we are now moving to Madagascar to continue flying in a country where aviation can make a huge difference to the unreached and to those in poverty in remote areas. Please continue to pray with us for the people of Arnhem Land and Madagascar.
Thank you for your prayers and support of our family.
To the only God our Saviour be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore!Jude 1:25
