* 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.
From early in life Steven and Margot have felt the call of God to missions and specifically Mission Aviation Fellowship. In 1995 they moved to Melbourne where Steven completed the Mission Aviation course at the Bible College of Victoria before returning to Brisbane to raise their 3 boys.
Steven continued his flight training and Margot was a full-time mother before joining Mission Aviation Fellowship in 2000 and then begun serving in Arnhem Land, firstly at Elcho Island and then Gove. In 2004 Steven served for a short time in Southern Africa where he flew with MAF South Africa.
They returned to Brisbane in 2004 for education opportunities for their 3 boys. Steven worked first as an associate pastor and since 2008 has worked as a police officer. Margot works as a clinical nurse in a busy hospital emergency department.
Their three boys are now adults, have completed high school and have moved onto work and higher education. Steven and Margot have strongly felt God’s call back to Mission Aviation where Steven will be flying and Margot is excited to be able to utilise her extensive nursing experience in service to God.
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that He considered me trustworthy, appointing me to His service.1 Timothy 1:12
