Frequently asked questions
  • What is matched giving?

    Matched giving is a time-bound campaign, in which donations are matched dollar-for-dollar to a matched giving fund. A matched giving fund can be one donor or a group of donors whose donations are pooled together, who have offered to match any donations given in a specified time period, to the total value of a specified amount.
  • How does matched giving work for this campaign?

    An anonymous group of donors has agreed to match new monthly donations for the first 12 months.  Donations will be matched to the value of $300,000 or up until October 12, whichever comes first. All donations above $2 are tax deductible and will be directed to where the need is greatest.
  • I already make a monthly donation to The Foundation, will my gifts be matched?

    Only new monthly donations will be matched for the first 12 months. Donations will be matched to the value of $300,000 or up until October 12, whichever comes first.
  • Will one-off donations be matched for this campaign?

    No, only monthly donations will be matched for this campaign. Donations will be matched for 12 months.
  • What happens when you decide to donate monthly?

    Restoring sight changes lives and it can only happen thanks to the generosity of supporters like you. 
    When you become a monthly donor we will send you: 
    • A welcome pack in the mail within a few weeks. The welcome pack will contain all the necessary information about your monthly gift. 
    • Your nominated account or credit card will be debited each month on the 15th or 28th (whichever is closest to your sign up date). 
    • You will receive regular email updates, sharing stories from the field about patients whose sight you’ve helped restore; medical professionals and programs you have supported; events and activities The Foundation has taken part in; petitions and research relating to eye health. 
    • At the end of each financial year, we will send a tax receipt with all your donations (donations over $2 are tax-deductible), for you to use for your income tax claim. 
  • Will I get a receipt?

    Yes, you will receive an email receipt immediately after donating and if you make a monthly gift you will be sent a yearly tax receipt every year.
  • What will my donation be used for?

    Your donation will be used to restore sight to those who are needlessly blind and help end avoidable blindness in the countries where we work, which includes eye operations and treatments, training surgeons and eye health workers, and other sustainable eye health.
    For every $1 donated, 75% goes directly towards eye health programs, 6% is necessary for operating expenses, and 19% goes towards investment in fundraising efforts which allows us to help even more people in future years.
  • Is my donation tax deductible?

    Yes, donations of $2 and over are tax deductible in Australia.
  • What methods of payment are accepted for monthly donations?

    We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Diners Club. We also accept monthly donations by direct debit.
