* 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.
God has been preparing Neil and Cheryl to serve with MAF over many years.
Neil has always had a passion for aviation and began flying at 18, while studying aeronautical engineering. He continued his love of flying and did further training at Camden.
Neil has served on the MAF NSW State Council since 2009 and is now ready to serve MAF as a pilot. He is looking forward to new challenges and the privilege of supporting the indigenous people of Arnhem Land physically and spiritually.
Neil and Cheryl have 4 children, 3 of whom recently married. Cheryl is passionate about being a Mum and with God’s help is looking forward to supporting women of all ages. She is also excited about opportunities to share the gospel with kids through teaching scripture and children’s ministry. Cheryl enjoys camping but not with crocodiles!
Neil and Cheryl’s youngest son, Robert, is joining them and will use his practical skills, energy and friendly nature to serve MAF in a variety of ways.
