* This donation is not 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.
Before working for CRMF Michael was an Electronic Engineer. They spent 3 years at the Bible College of Victoria before going to PNG with CRMF, arriving in Goroka in 2005.
For approx 11 years, Michael has been the General Manager. This role involves everything from planning budgets to installing satellite dishes or putting HF radios into remote Aid Posts. A very challenging role! Rachael’s main task is to take care of their four children aged between 19 and 11. She is also in charge of the hospitality side of the mission and is the ministries coordinator.
