Like many other charitable organisations, OnSide Victoria has to scrutinise the use of its limited funds, and given the financial capacity of the organisation, we are proud of the achievements to date.
It is becoming increasingly apparent that there is a huge demand for our help with thousands of CALD youth and other disadvantaged communities throughout the State who are eager to get involved in our programs and just participate. The more funds we have, the more we are able to accomplish, and it would be greatly appreciated if any companies or philanthropists are able to assist us in providing the increasingly important opportunities for CALD communities to participate in sport and recreation.
The assistance does not only need to be financial but donations of equipment or uniforms are also appreciated.
Bicycles and sporting equipment will be loaned out to young people on the housing estates in Richmond, Collingwood and Fitzroy over the school holidays.
If you have any sporting equipment or art supplies in good condition at home that you and your family are no longer using - please consider donating it to the program.
Human resources are the most valuable contribution to our work. As much as our current volunteers are committed to the cause, many of them have fulltime jobs and other responsibilities.
We would very much appreciate any people that could give some of their time, particularly those with a professional background in marketing, sponsorships and project management.
If you are able to donate funds, your time, expertise or goods to OnSide Victoria, please call (03) 9705 0666.
