Selection of Country Womens Association (CWA)

Following considerable research, the Parish Finance Committee have chosen the Country Women’s Association (CWA) to be the Charity to receive parishioner donations for the following reasons:


  1. The CWA is a volunteer organisation, well known to everyone for their fund raising scones at street stalls, shows and country fairs, among other assistance they provide direct to farming families.

  2. Every cent of what we donate will go direct to farmers in need. 

  3. No administrative costs are being deducted from our donations.

  4. Donations are eligible for 100% tax deduction.  

  5. The CWA provide grants of up to $3,000 for each farmer in need.

  1. To date, they have provided over 6,500 grants to farmers.

  2. The money has been, or will be spent, almost entirely in their local communities.

  3. The grants target the farm household costs, rather than the farm.

  4. They cover bills for groceries, vehicle maintenance, school, electricity, rates, telephone, dental and medical.
