* 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.
Nigel grew up as the son of a Pastor in Victoria and NSW. He met Georgina at a church camp in Townsville in 1990 after moving to Queensland with his family as a teenager. They became good friends and got married in Georgina’s hometown of Ravenshoe in 1993.
Since being married they have lived in Far North Queensland where Nigel worked in Communications and Information Technology before starting a company specialising in converged networks. Georgina ran her own home-based child care business for many years.
They have 5 children: Kiarnie was born in 1995, Michael was born in 1998, Jasmine was born in 2010, Danielle was born in 2013 and Matthew was born in 2015.
In 2011 they sold their IT business and joined MAF, where Nigel works in the IT department, supporting the infrastructure that makes it possible for MAF to operate in various locations around the world.
Nigel and Georgina believe that God gives us skills and abilities so that we can use them for the benefit of others, and serving with MAF allows them to work in support of worldwide missions, to see the gospel reach the remotest places on earth.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.Romans 12:1
