* 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 called René and Janneke to serve with MAF in 2009. Previously René worked as an electrical engineer and Janneke as a nurse.
Originally from the Netherlands they moved to Australia to start Bible college at BCV, Melbourne
The year after flight training started at Coldstream after which they were called to Arnhem Land, top end of Northern Territory. For nearly 4 years they lived amongst the local Yolŋu people in Milingimbi. Then they moved to Nhulunbuy where René became Crew Training Manager.
2018 sees a new move, this time to Mareeba, far north Queensland, home of MAF’s flight training centre where René will take on the role of Head of Delivery. He will be responsible for all operations and student planning.
René and Janneke Don are members of MAF Netherlands.
